I'm very sick, and I'll likely be dead before the end of the year. Are there any books that would help me find comfort and acceptance in my situation and death?

Remains of the day, maybe. Sort of a melancholy book about the end, just not the terminal end of life.

Read the books of the Bible that are mostly poetry. Try and be in the nature as much as you can. Record your life's events in a document. Accept that all things must pass and it's merely your time. Realize that life has been a blessing and be truly, honestly, genuinely grateful for the time you've had here.

You'll be on my mind, user.

It has been scientifically proven that they reduce / eradicate fear of death in terminally ill patients

And why is this a priori desirable you silly little twerp. Death should be terrifying and you should have the manliness to be able to endure that fear. Not be a deluded p-zombie in your brief last window of life

Nice empty idealism but in reality people simply want to feel at peace in life, in dying, and in death. No such things as a priori / a posteriori, these are concepts of intellectual poison. The dictator here is how individuals feel, that's all that matters (especially as you're dying), not the fiction of failed, dead men (philosophers).

Ivan Ilych is made for this. Quite short too, you can knock it out and have time for others (and for some poetry).
I'd definitely recommend To the Lighthouse. It's my favorite book, and I think it'll leave you with a comforting impression of the work of both time and other people in our lives.
Sorry to here it user. Remember what Nabokov said about the cradle rocking above an abyss and all that. Your time being conscious is its own infinity!

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Muramaki. It deals with an inevitable fate and 'death' in a sense. I can't relate on a personal level though, so I'm sorry to hear about that. It's hard to recommend to anyone how they should personally spend what time they have left, but I hope it's well spent.
