Okay . . . picture this (really) worst-case scenario: It’s cold and raining, your boyfriend/girlfriend has just dumped you, you’ve just been fired, the pile of unpaid bills is sky-high, your beloved pet has recently died, and you think you’re coming down with a cold. All you want to do (other than hiding under the covers) is to curl up with a good book, something warm and comforting that will make you feel better.
What do you read?
(Any bets on how quickly somebody says the Bible or some other religious text? A good choice, to be sure, but to be honest, I was thinking more along the lines of fiction…. Unless I laid it on a little strong in the string of catastrophes? Maybe I should have just stuck to catching a cold on a rainy day….)
I would without doubt be grabbing a historical romance novel, but I can't really be any more specific from that because I don't actually reread books very often, and so it isn't any one book that I grab but rather a book from a particular genre. Occasionally I might go for a nice cozy mystery as well, but it really just depends! Of course, I would also be comforting myself with some chocolate as well!
