Comfort Reads of BYOB members in April '21 -#WorldBookDay2021

Disclaimer: We understand that in the current scenario, being able to pick up a book and read it is a matter of privilege and fortune. However, some of us have had to hunker down and find solace/distraction/comfort in books. This list was made in the hopes of offering a tiny modicum of support, and not to offend anyone.

For World Book Day 2021, we asked BYOB members what books brought them comfort over the last one year, and here's what they said [see video as well]:

@mujeres_tuk - The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran - poetry that you can dip in and out of

@soumithhh - A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Father Brown stories by G.K Chesterton and Anton Chekov's Short Stories especially Ward No. 6 and Bet

@an_awakening_soul - My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman

@doggiversity - Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson especially the audio version

@kavya_09 - all about love by bell hooks for a reminder that love is everything

@that_voracious_reader - Heidi by Johanna Spyri, Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa and Wrath by John Gwynne

@a_y_82473 - A Book Of Simple Living by Ruskin Bond

Some other books that we considered to be comforting are:

Hope this list helps in these difficult times.
