Blue Monday ( Mood Boosting Book Remix )

The 20th January is Blue Monday – supposedly the day of the year when the most people feel depressed! To support and cheer people who may be feeling down, we are having a campaign to create a Mood-boosting Top Twenty list of books chosen by the people of Brighton & Hove, we will then promote them in libraries.

To get things started Library staff have come up with some recommendations for you, which we will be posting between now and the end of January, so to kick thing off we have Bev’s recommendation.

Name and role :Beverley Leonard

What makes you happy?

Reading, Cooking, Walking in the country and visiting new places

What do you recommend and why?

brysonOne of the most uplifting books I have read was Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson. Bill tells us what he thinks of Britain from an American’s perspective.

I remember sitting in bed at night laughing out loud at some of the funniest moments. I also recommend listening to the audio book which is equally entertaining.
