Is there a type of book you find particularly helpful?

I read to control depression too, but I suspect it's like music - highly dependent on the audience.

I read "The Once and Future King/The Book of Merlin" for a good cry. There's a lot from Shakespeare that makes you feel, and that's the worst thing about depression: your emotions get flattened. And there's bits from the King James Bible. God, I hate it when they translate that into "modern" English.

Thanks. We do have very different responses and books to pick up. I tend to look for fluff - what I think of as "brain candy", and mostly upbeat stuff.

Since I've been unwell, I started re-reading the entire Harry Potter series over again--I do like to read myself to sleep (although I'm told that seeing me nod off, only to be smacked awake, by the falling book-cover on my face--again and again--is entertaining for others).

My students got me into HP, years ago. I used to read their copies during lunch.

Am now up to The Half-Blood Prince, and realizing to my delight that, although I thought I did, I've never actually read this book before.

Oh, I envy you getting to discover that book again.
