Sharayu Gangurde I love reading Enid Blyton to relax my mind! However most books mentioned here fall under 'serious reading!'

message 11: by Xenophon (new)

Xenophon Hendrix I interpret comfort food as being food one likes to eat when one feels emotionally vulnerable, so I likewise interpret comfort reads as being things one likes to read when one feels emotionally vulnerable.

Alexandra Re: Books by Robert Stanek:

Don't believe the hype. This book has not been recommended as claimed in the blurb. It is not a best seller. It has not won awards. It is amateur garbage that has been slickly marketed. It also is not appropriate for children.

In addition the narrator on the version sold through Audible is horrendous.

Do your due diligence before purchasing this one.

http://conjugalfelicity.com/robert-st...

My advice: Don't waste any money or any time on this one. There is no one who would honestly and truthfully believe this trash is a great story.

There are however critiques of it on the web that are pretty entertaining. Find one of those instead if you really want to know what this book is all about.

I recommend this one: http://conjugalfelicity.com/keeper-ma...
