MEME: Booking Through Thursday

Okay . . . picture this (really) worst-case scenario: It’s cold and raining, your boyfriend/girlfriend has just dumped you, you’ve just been fired, the pile of unpaid bills is sky-high, your beloved pet has recently died, and you think you’re coming down with a cold. All you want to do (other than hiding under the covers) is to curl up with a good book, something warm and comforting that will make you feel better.
What do you read?

(Any bets on how quickly somebody says the Bible or some other religious text? A good choice, to be sure, but to be honest, I was thinking more along the lines of fiction…. Unless I laid it on a little strong in the string of catastrophes? Maybe I should have just stuck to catching a cold on a rainy day….)

Do I want to cry? Cause it's Anne of Green Gables, and I'll just flip to a page with Matthew's name on it, and I'm blubbering.
If I just want to go into another world, it's probably Bridget Jones or maybe Evening Class by Maeve Binchy. Both of those I've read many times, which is what I'd want, comfort food, good old favorites, with happy endings.

I haven't read Anne of Green Gables so now I'm wondering what happened with the character Matthew. :) I probably would read a book to send me into another world. I like Maeve Binchy too.

I haven't read Anne of Green Gables either!! At least I'm not all alone.

I loved Bridget Jones!! That was one of the first "chick lit" type books I ever read, and I was actually laughing out loud!

people! You should read Anne of Green Gables, so then you will know the wonderful land I live in, here on PEI.

Bridget Jones would be one of my picks, too. And Anne, though not for blubbering, just for comfort.

And yes, Anne is a MUST for those who haven't read her!
