 I've settled down to do some serious comfort reading.

My choice is Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey-Maturin series (a series of sea novels set in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars all 21 novels of it) - you would know of it as the movie Master & Commander.

This series is a big hit in our household and can be read continuously. So much so that three people can be reading the series at one time. This leads to negotiations such as:

"I'm about to go to sea again - where are you?" 
"HMS Surprise"
"Mauritius Command"
"Fine. I'll take Clarissa Oakes"

I've had to buy replacement paperbacks because some of them have fallen apart and I'll find them with a rubber band holding everything together. 

There are some side effects to be considered. If I am forced to remove my nose from one of these books at short notice and join a real world conversation my English as she is spoke is archaic and of the nautical persuasion.

That is too, too cute! I love that movie, and the soundtrack!

Those books are amazing.

In our house, we had similar negotiations about the Jim Butcher "Dresden" series.
