Bibliotherapy

I don't know about you, but growing up books were my best friends, and now that I've gotten older they also provide me with some of my most successful and happiest relationships.

Isn't it amazing what can happen to a person when they read a book? How words on consecutive pages can change you? Make you happy, make you sad, make you kinder, make you angry, make you change the world? Books are powerful and they should be because each book is a piece of the author that wrote it. And all of us know that words can be powerful. They can hurt. They can heal. They can make peace and they can make war.

So the point of this blog is to help you find a book for every mood. A book that can help you with the stage of your life you're experiencing now. I do have to openly admit that I don't always like to read books that make me sad. There is so much sadness in the world now that I like to read to be happy, but we will go over some sad books too.

I hope you enjoy having me as a your bibliotherapist. Think of it this way....books are cheaper than therapy....well unless you buy and hoard them like I do. But therapy and a good book are good for all us.

Enjoy the journey. The first book I will be reviewing, which will show up on July 5th is Jennifer Robson's Somewhere In France.

More to come....
