The kids are sick this week so I have my day job plus looking after sick kiddos plus bleaching everything they have come into contact with. But I do lay down with them for 10 minutes at a time or so, so it's the perfect time to break out a book of short stories.
I am reading Coming Home, a book of short stories by a number of writers from the Northwest Territories, as chosen by John Mutford, the host of the Great Canadian Book Challenge, and Judy McLinton. I have especially enjoyed "Haunted Hill Mine" by Cathy Jewison, can't wait to read the rest of the book.
My kids need comfort and crawling up in a futon with an old-timey book is definitely comfort. So we are going with some Little Golden Books. I Can Fly, with the charming rhymes from Ruth Krauss, definitely hit the comfort spot.
Do you comfort read?
