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.
