There are no faster or firmer friendships
than those formed between people
who love the same books.
Clarence Darrow for the Defense
Individuals across social media are finding myriad of creative ways these days to help people cope during the pandemic, e.g., reading poetry aloud; singing and playing music; creating amusing pet videos; even posting more often on their blogs. Some of you have mentioned you find yourselves, at this time, unable to read anything too deep or heavy. I am finding that myself and have been reaching for books I can wrap around me like a comfy sweater during these—as one blogging friend put it—tilting times.
If you came to my house, you'd be most welcome to browse my bookshelves as the tea brewed. Alas, since that's not possible, especially now, I've taken to browsing my book collection with you in mind—looking for books I think you might enjoy and then sharing excerpts with you. It's my small online contribution to helping create community in isolation.
I hope you enjoy the series. Additional book posts will be included at the top of this list. In the meanwhile, please keep safe and happy reading!
