Free books and you don’t even have to go to the library to get them! Yay Project Gutenberg.
Maria Thompson Daviess: The Melting of Molly is delightfully tongue in cheek. And has a lovely ending.
A. A. Milne: He didn’t just write books about Christopher Robin. I’ve been enjoying his very silly plays. Belinda, for example.
Mary Roberts Reinhart: Lovely romantic suspense, lovely romance, lovely suspense. Fun all around.
Raphael Sabatini: Sadly not all of his stuff is good; he was prolific. But they’ve got his best: Captain Blood, Scaramouche, The Sea-Hawk. Mmmm swashbuckling romance! I don’t think they have Master at Arms, which is a shame (also titled The Marquis of Carabas… under which you can get it for cash money as a paperback).
Booth Tarkington: I loved the Penrod books growing up. (So did my mom!) They’re like a lower key Tom Sawyer set in a slightly later time period.
Carolyn Wells: The Patty books are so very silly. So much like brain candy. Quite soothing! Even if women’s best career ambition is to be a homemaker. (Ptuii!)
Oscar Wilde: The Canterbury Ghost, plays, so soothing, so wickedly funny.
P.G. Wodehouse: There are at least two Jeeves books. And assorted crap not worth reading (juvenalia, stuff that is a bit racist and just not very good in other ways). There may be some non crap stuff too but I haven’t gone through it all yet. Jeeves and Wooster are soothing my anxious soul. I like hearing Steven Fry and Hugh Laurie in my head as I reread them. It adds another dimension.
