Reading is my balm and my greatest enjoyment, even more than (gasp) writing. When in need of comfort, I can just turn to my beloved tomes. Even looking or touching my best favorites will make me happy.
My current reading list includes:
Selected Poems by Mary Oliver
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
An Ocean of Air by Gabrielle Walker
..and I also just finished Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain. Excellent explanation of the difference between intro- and extroverts. Never knew before just why I was an introvert, and it’s fascinating to read. I highly recommend it.
