Re: Comfort Books?

I recently read the entire Pern series all over again and can't say that any of them attract me as "Comfort Books". I usually read such books for enjoyment and to "escape" day-to-day frustrations.

Re: T-1s and Primes

My condolences. That happened to me once when I was living at home years ago. If I still had the books they would now be antiques (at least as far as Americans are concerned) and worth quite a bit!
