Carry on, dear patrons, and don't forget to read some books.

Unprecedented. Troubled. Or just plain scary. That's how these times are being described. It’s important to keep up with the news, but sometimes you need a break. You need fiction so absorbing that the world will drop away completely. The e-books on this list I made for you are not all entirely happy and feel-good, but what they have in common is they will make the world go away so that you can forget for a while and live in these characters’ reality. Many of these novels will make you laugh, and they all have well-developed characters. There are older titles on this list that might be available immediately, but there are also some new ones you'll have to place a hold on, because who knows how long this might last? Be well, dear readers. Know that the people who work at your local library miss you as much as you miss your library. What with sanitizing things, homeschooling your children, and trying to find stores that stock toilet paper and hand sanitizer, I know you’re busy. Carry on, but find time to read. Your soul needs a lot of things, but one of those things might be a good book.
