Comforting Books To Take Into the New Year

2021 gives us reason for hope and rejuvenation. Literati staff have come up with books we recommend for readers to take with them into the new year: books we feel can be held dear as we head in to the long winter of snow and ice storms, covid fears and reality, and as a new administration gets to work on making the world around us a better place. These are thoughtful books, funny books, inspiring books, calming read-by-the-fireside books. Some are oldies but goodies, some are brand new, and some will be released in the next few months.
