accompany you or be your companion


Senior Member
Hello, my friends,

I was wondering which phrase is more idiomatic:

1) I hope books could accompany you when you are bored and lonely.

2) I hope books could be you companion when you are bored and lonely.

Thoughts: When you feel lonely and don't know what to do, reading books could be a good way of leisure activity.

    Definitely no for #1. Possibly for #2 (with "your companions"). And here's a thought for #3:

    I hope books can/will comfort you when you're bored or lonely.
