Okay . . . picture this (really) worst-case scenario: Itâ€™s cold and raining, your boyfriend/girlfriend has just dumped you, youâ€™ve just been fired, the pile of unpaid bills is sky-high, your beloved pet has recently died, and you think youâ€™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? – BTT
If that really happened, I wouldn’t be reading. But if I was, I’d want something light. I’d want chicklit. If I didn’t have that around, I usually go for a good, ol favourite classic such as Jane Austen. I can be stressed quite often so I do want lighter books. I like fiction that I have a feeling won’t be too dark or with an ending too bleak. I usually have a good instinct about books. I also like going through knitting patttern books and cookbooks when I don’t feel up for a real book to cheer me up.
After reading your post, I find myself agreeing with you about wanting to read something light…definitely would have to take my mind off my worries and not add to or remind me of them! I probably would not want to read several of the ones I listed after all!
I like Jane Austen. I get engrossed in those olden times!
