$25 Superpack: Cozy Reading for Busy People

by Natalye Childress, Katie Haegele, Super Pack! and Bob Suren

During the grey days of winter, or those darker days in your life, the best remedy is often just curling up with a good book. We chose this selection of comfort reads for their confessional, personal style—each one is like having a satisfying talk with a good friend who knows how to leave you feeling hopeful even when the subject matter is hard. And we know you have a lot going on in your life, so we also chose you these books that have short chapters that each stands alone, in case you don't have the luxury of gobbling each book in one long, flashlight-under-the-covers session. 

 

You'll get Cycletherapy, in which a bunch of regular people write about how bicycling has carried them through the best and worst times of their lives. Then Crate Digger, Bob Suren's memoir about his lifelong obsession with record collecting brought him to the brink and then back again. Slip of the Tongue is Katie Haegele's series of feminist love letters to language, colored by her own experiences and evolution. And Aftermath of Forever is Natalye Childress's series of early-twenties relationships, hookups, and dates gone wrong, all set to moody mixtapes.
