What are your ultimate re-reads? Your "comfort blanket" books?
I recently took stock of the books I read over and over again, and thought I would share with you some of my favourite comfort reads:
His Dark Materials Trilogy
Home to my favourite literary characters! Sometimes, I just want to spend time with them. The book shows me something new every time I read it, and every time I read it, I feel like I understand quantum physics a tiiiiny bit more ;)
The books of my teenage years. I have read Order Of The Pheonix more than any of them. The familiarity is comforting. The line "Have a biscuit Harry" makes my LIFE.
This book is a bit silly, and a nice little reminder to be good to your fellow man. It was my first Jodi Picoult novel, and my most-read.
I have pages falling out of this book, I have read it so much. I like the simplicity, the day by day approach, the option to believe it ends well. Love it.
So what books are lying well-worn on your bookshelf? Are you thinking about downloading their e-versions for longevity?
