Reading for Pleasure Collection Part 3

Mood-boosting books

The Reading for Pleasure collection now includes a range of mood-boosting books. This list has been put together by the Reading Agency . 

Most but not all of the recommendations are from people who have been coping with life-threatening illnesses and discovered the books to be mood-boosting. 

A list of the mood-boosting books in the library is below. There are already some reviews of the books on the Bedstime Reading blog.
