#MicroblogMondays 74: Bibliotherapists
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Mental Floss recently had an article about bibliotherapists. They are support staff for therapists who recommend books with the understanding that a book can sometimes change your mood or help you see a situation in a new way or simply transport you somewhere else for a few hours. Mental Floss explains,
Patients fill out a questionnaire about their reading habits and issues they might be having, and get a prescription for something that speaks to their specific set of circumstances.
I kind of love this idea, though I don’t know how I would feel about going to a bibliotherapist. I love getting book recommendations, but I sort of balk at being told what to read.
What do you think? Do you enjoy being told what to read?
