Today we’ll be talking comfort reads! What is that, you might ask? It’s a book that is like an old friend, something we pull off the shelf every few years to savor once again, maybe a book we can already quote entire passages from and yet it still gives us a warm, happy feeling to read it again.
“Comfort reads” is the topic of the first episode of a new feature called “High-Five Friday” that I’ll be hosting at the Lady Scribes website every Friday, starting next week. My top answers from you guys and from some fellow authors will be compiled into a five-book “high-five” list. If everyone lists a different book, I’ll pick five at random to include in the column with an annotation of the others. I’ll also be giving away a small prize–you know, to make it worth your while 🙂
So between now and midnight on Saturday, Feb. 1, leave a comment here with this info:
Favorite Comfort Book Title; Author; One or two sentences as to why it’s your top comfort read. It can be an old book, a recent one (although it might be hard for a recent one to have withstood the test of time). Any genre, for any audience.
And good old random.org will pick one of you to win a $5 Amazon GC. You can get an extra entry by hitting one of the share buttons below for FB or Twitter.
In the meantime, today’s the last day to enter for the tourwide prizes on my blog tour for “Chenoire,” and the story is being featured over at Happy Tails and Tales with one of my favorite Louisianans, Maghon—check it out, and enter to win! [ Link to http://wp.me/p1ZipC-1f0 ]
Thanks for sharing your comfort reads—look for winners and a new scene snippet on Sunday. Hint: the snippet might contain the words “elf spawn.”
Want to know some of my comfort reads? I’m blogging about them today over at Romance Magicians!
