Mood-boosting Books 2012

Our brand-new Mood-boosting Books promotion will launch in January 2012. Research shows that reading improves mental well-being. Our Mood-boosting Books promotion is aimed at adults, particularly those who might have experienced mild to moderate mental-health conditions linked to stress, anxiety and depression.

Eight reading groups around the country have read, reviewed and recommended 27 Mood-boosting Books. We will launch this booklist of the 27 titles in January – it includes books ranging from novels and non-fiction to poetry and graphic novels. There are also titles which are suitable for less confident readers.

There are also packs of promotional goodies (A5 leaflets (4 pages), A4 posters, A3 headers, and a downloadable booklist and review cards) which you can order at £10 a pack from our shop.

There will be more Mood-boosting Books offers and freebies from January, plus we will be asking you to post your reviews of the Mood-boosting Books so that you can be in with the chance of winning a set of books for your reading group.

Babes in Arms

Parents of young children know that at the end of the day, when the little ones are finally tucked up in bed, it’s hard to muster up the energy to do anything more than plonk yourself in front of the TV and zone out. But what about all the things you wish you had the time and energy to do? What about reading a good book?
