Books that make you feel good about life

Tuesday, 11 October 2016
They are tried and true books which the readers have chosen because they make the reader feel good about life.
 
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) has today revealed the results of a two-month search for mood-boosting titles on World Mental Health Day.
 
A list of 252 books has been produced from 320 respondents following a call to ALIA Members for the books into which you can escape to lift your mood.
 
This list will be used to support the Books on Prescription program, which is being trialled in libraries in Central and Far Western New South Wales.

For the next few weeks on social media we will be highlighting these mood-boosting books and providing the wonderful reasons as to why these books have been nominated.
