Books can do many things for us. When "Sandra" was in today,
she mentioned how her reading has changed, and how "cozies" had
carried her through the illness and death of her partner.
Her current reading list is full of challenges and a spectrum of
ideas. At that time, comfortable fiction and cozy mysteries were
read and reread. No challenges, no threats, no deep thinkings.
Survival mode was assisted by friendly reads, just like slipping
into well worn denims and a flannel shirt.
How many different purposes our reading serves. How we,
as booksellers, appreciate that books & people connection.
Thanks for sharing.
