The reading year ahead — or how I plan to tackle at least a dozen novels that are listed in '1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die' - Reading Matters
I wish I could interest readers like this in working with me on my bibliotherapy project. How does reading these titles affect your state of mind (individually, not as a group). Feedback is what readersanonymous lacks and I don't seem to know how to make it inviting to participate.
Maybe we as readers would rather just read than have to deconstruct the afteraffects.

"You define a tree and you do not see what it is; it becomes its name. It is the same with woman and man. Everywhere ... one or the other, male or female, abandoned by the other."
Canadian author explores gender and "otherness" in story of hermaphrodite identity crisis. Do we know who we are apart from how we are defined by others? Winter lyrically deconstructs "know thyself."

The Healing Power of Creative Expression by Geri Giebel Chavis is part of a series library on therapeutic writing worth review. Nothing earth shatteringly original here but basic description of methodology and selection of poems she has selected for use in her bibliotherapeutic practice. Probably a good example of poetry therapy and how it is applied today.
