Bibliotherapy 101

While we're on a bibliotherapy roll, may we recommend tolstoytherapy.com for your perusal? Lucy, author of the site, has a great list of books that might help for a number of issues and things that may weigh heavy.  We also really like what Lucy says about bibliotherapy:

"Bibliotherapy is all about feeling good with books: reading great novels, poems and stories to help us through difficult situations and feelings.

It’s also about nurturing our sense of wellbeing and feeling better in ourselves. Reading is one of the best ways to relax and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

Reading fiction is one of the easiest ways to relate to others when we feel isolated. Also, as we get to know characters, we get to know ourselves.

Bibliotherapy is a lifelong companion to all those who welcome it. You don’t have to sign-up for anything or hit rock-bottom before you consider it, simply pick up a book."
