When I need a pick me up type book I turn to Fannie Flagg. She's my comfort author, any of her Elmwood Springs books.

So far the only book that I have read by Fannie Flagg is~The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion and I loved it, rated it 5-stars! Will have to check out others.

Gotta be Terry Pratchett. If I'm feeling down or things aren't going to plan, I can always rely on Discworld to bring some perspective and sorely missed humour back into my life. I've read all of Pratchett's books and re-read certain others countless number of times. They are a kaleidoscope of observations, and I think I'll keep on turning those pages for as long as I can, for the pictures that emerge continue to surprise me each and every time.
