8 Books of Comfort, Distraction, Humour, or Inspiration

Life sometimes comes at you hard. I know it has for me. Divorce, the loss of friendships, and physical wellness–a viral pandemic. The reasons I’ve felt low have been as varied as the years and decades I’ve lived. The only consistency during the hard times have been the few books I’ve reached for in search of comfort, inspiration, distraction, or humour. I’d like to share them with you.
