Bibliotherapy: Books Can Transform Us

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Bibliotherapy has been a hot topic among book bloggers this month. Specifically, people have been referencing the London-based School of Life's bibliotherapy program. Book lovers often turn to books in tough times. Sometimes they offer perspective. Sometimes they just offer an escape. Florinda launched a conversation about bibliotherapy by sharing her own experience and she wants to know what books you turn to for solace. - Karen

"During my own time of need for bibliotherapy a decade ago, my preferred treatments were memoir, history, and biography rather than fiction; I still wanted stories, but I wanted those stories to be real. And I still read those forms of nonfiction, but now it’s because I’ve discovered that I like them. Yes, books can transform us.
