Hi! We're Reklist and we’re ecstatic to be guest blogging for Book Therapy. Today we're bringing you 5 books on happiness. Reklist is a platform for making and receiving entertainment recommendations (books, movies, shows, podcasts, and music), keeping track of what you've read, watched and listened to. It's also the perfect place to discover new titles. Our 'Explore' page allows you to browse hundreds of recommendations. There's also a 'Newsfeed' where you can view, like and comment on your friends' activities, and a 'My Reklist' page where you can manage your recommendations. We created Reklist as we frequently found ourselves forgetting recommendations from friends and family and with the ever-growing number of books and content available, it's tricky figuring out what we should be reading, watching and listening to.
