You may have seen the articles over the last year touting the benefits of bibliotherapy for everything from stress to chronic physical pain. I personally have had a difficult several months and have found reading very soothing even if the book wasn’t mind-blowing.
A very dear relative of mine is in the hospital and knowing they are an avid reader, I decided to put together a bookish care package. I chose some non-fiction books on their favourite topic, magazines for lighter reading, a crossword puzzle book and a bookmark. I don’t know how therapeutic my book choices will be, but my hope is the package will make their stay a little more comfortable and the long waits less tedious.
What books you would choose for a care package or tell me about the books that had a therapeutic effect on you. Do you even believe in bibilotherapy?
