Do you have a favourite book or author you like to read when you are feeling down or just want a comforting, literary touchstone? Tell us about it! For me it is the Mitford books by Jan Karon. They are about life in the fictional small town of Mitford, North Carolina. They just make you feel good, and are exceptionally easy to read. When I need a break from non-fiction or more complicated novels, Mitford is just what the doctor ordered.
