  1. oh, yes, i have convalescent books! ("dragonsinger" happens to be one of them..."the tombs of atuan"...er, also "the tale of mrs tittlemouse") being sick is a pretty familiar state from earliest memories. there is that moment in every illness when you turn the corner, and begin to heal, but are still very weak and not quite yourself; at that time, simple things like sunlight on your blankets, or being able to smell your tea again, or restful sleep, or the absence of pain suddenly feel very big indeed. and returning to those books is a sign of being on the mend, as well as a cherished way to pass the time in bed...

  2. I love the tombs of atuan. I love how kind and gentle ged was in that book. I read it at least once a year. And I remember Mrs tittlemouse fondly from childhood:)

  4. Lovely thoughts. I do so enjoy your writings.
    Be well, my friend.
    (I didn't have books, in my youth. But that was yesterday, and not today.)

  5. I hope you recover quickly, dear Sarah... I find I cannot process words at all when I'm sick or in pain, so I have beautiful 'picture books' (I skip over the words) like Pia Jane Bijerk's My Heart Wanders and anything by Sibella Court xx

  7. I seem to return to Sue Bender's 'Plain and Simple' when I am really under the weather. When I am recovering, the books by Mary Stewart, I have all by her, are in order, romantic suspense it is called I think. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  8. Oh I do hope you feel much better soon, lovely Sarah. I resort to convalescent books, also : ) My main ones are by John O'Donohue, because I feel so gently held and soothed by him. Also, like Cath above - I read Mary Stewart, also Ursula leGuin.

    Sending you healing wishes, and softness. xx
