Books as food

(x-posted lotsa places)



What are your comfort books? The books that you go to when you just want to curl up with something well-known and well-loved.
What do you binge-read? What genres or authors do you just read and read and read in a lump?



A Little Princess and the Anne of Green Gables series, as well as the original Winnie the Pooh.
I've been on a Harry Potter and a Discworld binge lately. Every once in awhile, I'll go on a Mary Higgens Clark binge, as well.

Night Watch, Reaper Man, Soul Music, Small Gods, Maurice and his Amazing Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett.

A Wrinkle in Time and A Swiftly Tilting Planet, by Madeline L'Engle.

The Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien

Dealing with Dragons, by (her name escapes me at the moment, sorry).

Used to include Harry Potter, but working at Scholastic will make you sick of that right quick...

Got some odd ones
The D'Laurus (sp?) Book of Greek Myths - Closest thing I have to a personal Bible is a well-illustrated children's book. This was my introduction to being pagan in a way...

Alcatraz 1934-1963 - A brief history of the time the island in San Francisco Bay was a notorious prison. My favorite section is the escape attempts.

1984, Brave New World, and Frankenstien - Try to read these once a year to ground myself in my culture and where I belong in it. Also, to be glad I am who I am and when and where I am.

An assortment of gaming books from White Wolf, West End Games, Deep 7, and a few other games just to get background info on the universes involved and such.

Textual Poachers - the best damned non-fiction fanboy book there is. Every fan needs to read this, and its honest and through take on fandom.

Finally, I have a lot of music reference books that give timelines, write ups on bands, lyrics, quotes, and other useful triva. My favorites of these is The Encylopedia of Music A-Z, The Billboard Number Ones of the Rock Era (1955-1984), and this book of quotes and lyrics by Duran Duran from 1980-1984.
