What to Read When You're Sick of Being Sick

Sniffle, sneeze, cough. Like everyone, I'm sick. I've been sick for over a week now, and I'm sick of being sick. There are really only two bright sides to this situation:

1. Tea. Lots and lots and lots of tea. Piping hot tea, with copious amounts of lemon and honey. Ahhh.


2. A chance to indulge in some comfort reads. Between Nyquil and general exhaustion, I'm not altogether sharp enough to concentrate on a book I haven't read yet, so I love to re-read when I'm sick. I don't always have time to re-read entire books, but even just revisiting a few happy-making chapters cheers me up.

When I'm sick, I want to read something that will transport me to a different time or place, something with characters I can root for, and something with a certain amount of sweetness that just makes me smile.
The Goose Girl, by Shannon Hale / Betsy and the Great World, by Maud Hart Lovelace /
The Other Countess, by Eve Edwards / Suite Scarlett, by Maureen Johnson /
Entwined, by Heather Dixon / The Dragonfly Pool, by Eva Ibbotson

  3. Right when a home controller require specific help, how are they prepared to contact their item's particular care staff? Extraordinary particular help will allow a home analyst to get in touch with them with a collection of techniques. The two most indispensable methods to a home reviewer will be by phone and email. In case an assessor is in the field in the midst of a survey and they continue running over an issue, they require specific reinforce ASAP. They don't have adequate vitality to sit tight for a response. Awesome specialized help should be available by phone on all ordinary business days. They should give a live, very much arranged person that can quickly explore the issue and recoup the essay writing service. The correct inverse thing a controller needs is to call a number and go to a general association voice message and need to sit tight for help until the point when they get returned to.
