Reading is a great pastime, especially if you have a mental illness. Reading is engaging enough (with the right book) to help distract the reader from side effects of medications or symptoms of the disorder. Also, reading can provide helpful information (depending on the book) for coping skills. Many people find reading soothing, as well. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies, hence the selection of books below. Also, in the sidebar you can find a list of recent books and reviews where applicable from my Goodreads account. Enjoy!
