I honestly can’t fathom life without books by my side. They’ve become so crucial to my sanity that the mere thought of such a possibility drives me nuts. It’s not even just about the emotions, from joy to pain, that they allow us to embrace at our own discretion. It’s the potential for novelty, for escapism, for progress on so many levels. Sometimes a book is all you need to cure everything wrong in our reality, even if it’s just temporarily. Here are a couple of comics that showcase the importance of books to humankind, many even exposing how revealing books are of our own person! Or cats. 😮
This feature published at an undetermined frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, who knows) will present a couple of mini reviews on anything that isn’t a physical book that I own (ebooks, comic books, TV series or movies).

Anything presented in this feature doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t get a full-review treatment in the future. That will entirely depend on how much I loved it, how interested you are in hearing more on it, and how much I have to still say about it! 🤣

It contains absolutely everything a bookworm, especially one that is introverted, would feel about books and their godly ability to comfort us better than any living creature.

A fun and original collection of one- or two-page comics that emphasizes everything a reader and a writer might feel or discover in their lives.
Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen
An entertaining collection of comics depicting the normalcy of social awkwardness, body image, and various daily dilemmas that many women will probably easily relate to. This collection also introduces us to Sarah Andersen’s newly found love for cats! With fun and simple artwork, it effectively captures the soul of this series once again.
Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen
Another entertaining collection of comics by Sarah Andersen that continues to explore an introvert’s predicament in the social world, the strictly women struggles of everyday life, and age-old cat/dog love we all have. The final section of the volume also serves as a motivational speech for creators out there. Sometimes it’s exactly what we need when we least expect it. 😉
