Open Book Blog Hop – 9th August
Welcome to this week’s blog hop. Today’s topic is:
Do you have a favourite piece of literature? What is it and why is it your favourite?
I cannot really say I have an actual favourite book. Instead I have several favourites from my younger days that I’ve read over and over again. I’ve always seen books as a kind of comfort, and during stressful times (for example having various surgeries over the years) I tend to reach for stories I’ve known inside out for years. I can quickly lose myself in the familiar words, and the comfort blanket of a well-known book can distract me from any grim reality I’m experiencing at the time. Some people comfort-eat, but I comfort-read. It saves me gaining too many pounds, lol.
