There was a time back in 1970 when they would love filling in a questionnaire.
-- Evening Class by Maeve Binchy.
Every now and again I want to fall into a Maeve Binchy novel and live in it. This mood usually strikes when I am hectic at work or otherwise am feeling a bit overwhelmed. Her novels are dense with details of interesting, but ordinary people overcoming difficulties. They restore me.
I like Binchy's books. They are comfort food for my brain.ReplyDelete

Bybee: "Comfort food for the brain" is the perfect description!ReplyDelete
Booksnyc: Yes, they relax me. Or,l I guess "refresh me" is better. They are perfect for when I'm feeling harried and harassed.
