Bibliotherapy: Reading to Heal

Thursday, Feb 19, 2009 at 2:33pm

We have created a new section in our stores called Bibliotherapy. Reading novels, essays, poetry and philosophy can help us through difficult times in our lives. There is a human inclination to identify with others through literature, to form bonds with characters facing similar circumstances. When beset by sadness or indecision, we can be elevated and enlightened by powerful ideas.

We have chosen titles from every genre except self-help. There are titles from our teen fiction collection as well. We hope to rotate titles regularly to bring you an evolving selection of uplifting and empowering books.
