Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?
Books make me happy in general. Whatever I happen to be reading, it provides so much from being a friend to something to look forward to at the end of the day. There are days when things are bad, or I get sad about something and I'll grab an old favorite as a recognition, or sometimes validation, that feelings are, like, okay. As I've quoted here before from Stephen King, "you never know when you might need an escape hatch."
