Books that Give Me Comfort

In Comfort books from Blue Skunk Blog, Doug Johnson shares,

“Every now and then, I also find I need "comfort" books - books that I've read before and can relax in the re-reading of, knowing the plot and the characters.”

He asks that we share our comfort books. I loved this question because it really made me think of the books I love. Usually, I read a book once and I don’t come back to it. But there are some books that I would read again and again. Here are some books that I’ve read several times. When I can’t find something new to read or I just want to read something familiar, these are the books I come back to:

1.     To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
2.     The Harry Potter books by J K Rowling
3.     Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
4.     Books by Debbie Macomber
5.     A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
6.     The Hobbit by J R Tolkien
7.     Charlottes Web by E B White
8.     The Phantom Tollbooth by
9.     The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis
10.  A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle

Many of these books bring me back to my school days. They bring good memories and give my heart warmth and comfort.

I want to give my students the same kinds of memories and hope to share some of my favorite books with them.

What are your comfort books?
