Sick Day Re-Deux


I've been battling a cold turned sinus infection and it's made me take a dip in blogging, which I hate! It also got me thinking about a post I wrote a couple of years ago about sick day comforts.

I still love Anne and would happily re-watch and re-read Anne of Green Gables sick day or not. But my sick day feel good book comforts have changed a bit as I've gotten older. I've noticed that as an adult I tend to use sick days to try and make a dent in my TBR instead of going for an old favorite like I would as a child. I think part of that is because I don't have as much free time to read as adult, so I take what I can get. As a kid, I could spend all weekend reading and it was OK, but I don't always have that luxury as an adult.

I've also noticed that I like reading picture books when I'm sick. I usually have a large stack of them checked out from my library and spending the afternoon reading nothing but picture books is a wonderful comfort for me. I think it takes me back to my childhood. And it makes me feel like I read a ton of books! :)

I think books are the best way to feel better. It takes your mind off things, you can curl up anywhere and read, and you can be transported anywhere you want.

What about you? Do you find books to a comfort when you're sick?

  1. So sorry you're sick. Get well soon!! :)

    I always find books to be comforting and read every chance I get. When I was a kid and got sick my mom would get me comic books and popcicles. She and my hubby now get me magazines to go with my popcicles when I'm not feeling well!

  2. Books are a comfort, always, sick or healthy. I tend to be a sleeper when I'm sick so even then I can't get much reading done.

    Feel better!!
