Why Books Are Comforting to Anxious People

I was almost going to let today go by without a post, but the day is not over yet. A twitter post I picked up via The International Librarians Network @InterLibNet
today was Why Books Are Comforting to Anxious People  via @bookriot The writer mentions the escapism, the focus, and the ability to immerse in another world. The distraction and the structure in the narrative a beginning, middle and end rather than the unpredictability of our lives helps to give structure to some.  It can be  a comfort through change and disorder. The comments give testament to the author’s viewpoint and agree on various level to her thoughts.
