You know you have one, maybe even more than one. It's like dark chocolate, or maybe Ben and Jerry's ice-cream when you really need it (cue Bridget Jones here). Last night I was feeling a like a good book, but not something new--something that I already know how it ends and how much I'll love it, even if I've read it twenty times or more. For me, the best is A Wrinkle In Time, which I've read so many times my old copy is tattered and frayed (though I'll never let it go!). Lately Twilight has been another fun one I like to pick up and flip open to a page, getting into the story and sighing like a sixteen year-old all over again :-) I know Twilight has plenty of people who didn't like it, but I'm not one of them. Another lab-rat at work has just discovered them and has been devouring them between term papers, filling me in on where she is every day and discussing the movie at length. She wasn't a "big reader" before the books (her own words), so no matter what, I think they're doing some good. And let's be honest here, who doesn't like some hot vampires? Tehehe!
So, comfort books--gotta love 'em. What are yours?
