I have a bunch of things I re-read when I am really sick, or, as over the last week or so, in intense pain.
These are never great literature!!!
It used to be, of all things, the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Sometimes it was Patricia Cornwall's early stuff, when she was good.
Occasionally, an Anya Seton.
Sometimes thingummy Auel's better books....
This time, it's been Pearl Buck! I purchased a bunch of her stuff for nostalgic reasons a while back. She's probably my best quality sick or injured author.
