Long live Dame Agatha (and Ariadne, and Hercule Poirot) -- there can never be too much of this book in anybody's life. Especially after an experience like that!

Exactly! What was I thinking not picking this one in the first place?!
Weeellll ... :)
I love reading this book every October!

This is one of your annual October reads? Wow. But then I just checked and it appears I have read this book at least every other year since 2013.

It's always a comfort to turn to a well-loved re-read after reading something awful.

It really is. It's knowing that the book will not disappoint. To be fair, it doesn't even need to be a book I already know. A familiar author, who I trust will not disappoint, does the same trick.

What are your go-to "remedy" books/authors, PM?

I'll re-read something relatively short and well-loved, often a children's tale, like a Frances Hodgson Burnett, JK Rowling, or Tolkien. If I'm feeling romantic, then Austen. If I'm feeling salty, then a few Stephen King short stories. It's like a brain-reset.

I like the description of a brain-reset. That's pretty much exactly what it is.
