What is your favorite "comfort book" ?

At Home in Mitford
Most folks can name their comfort foods without a thought. One of my comfort foods is ice cream especially chocolate chip :) I've met a good number of readers who have what I call "comfort reads." A comfort read is a book or series that the reader will read again and again. I had a student years ago who would check-out Running Loose by Chris Cruther once a year. He said it helped to keep him focused. I have several comfort reads. My current comfort read is The Mitford books by Jan Karon. I have read the entire series four or five times. I've listened to the audiobooks a couple of times. I especially like to listen to an audiobook when I'm sewing. I don't have a TV or computer in my sewing room. Listening to a book on CD especially one that I already know the plot helps when I am sewing. I'm currently listening to book three in the Mitford series These High Green Hills. My drive to school is 45 minutes. Lately, I've started bringing my Ipod and listening to my current audiobook while driving home in the afternoon.
