When we’re going through a hard time, there are a lot of coping
mechanisms we can turn to—funny movies, tearjerkers, vodka tonics, beloved
songs, chocolate, and of course, books. In that spirit, we at Off the Shelf
offer these 12 books for your consideration. They have brought us comfort and
solace because of their wisdom and humor, their insights and perspective,
their spirit and language. They are books we love and we share them with you
in the hopes that should you need it, they might bring you some comfort, too.
