Wondering what book to read next? Trying to remember the name of that book recommended to you by a passing acquaintance? Love a particular author and wondering which book of theirs to dive into next?
Then Book Therapy would love to hear from you! Our resident book therapist Bijal Shah is here to address your questions and will be publishing a weekly Q&A blog post on the most pressing literary needs starting July 25, 2018. All we need is your questions about what it is that you are looking to read and we will gladly oblige!
The weekly Q&A service will offer personalised suggestions for one reader whose requirements and needs are the most urgent. These can be for yourself, for your kids or for your next book club read. They can range from a variety of genres (e.g. literary fiction, historical fiction, romance, classics, thrillers, non-fiction, self-development, spiritual, food, dance, the arts, culture, society, parenting, biographies and memoir, essays, true crime, audiobooks, photography etc) to authors’ book collections to a specific literary cure that you might be looking for (e.g. helping your child with anxiety or bullying, struggling with bereavement, friendship breakups, ticking biological clock, fatherhood, redundancy, regret etc) to travel prescriptions (check out our book prescription for New York for example.)
You’re invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, reading interests, needs and habits. Feel free to tell us about your favourite books — both old and new, when you read best etc. Your preferences for fiction/non-fiction, audio vs kindle vs paperback. We will then take your question away and connect you with the perfect book for you.
If you can’t wait for the weekly Q&A blog post or need something sooner you can always request a personalised book prescription (i.e. a tailor-made reading list with a minimum of 7–10 books personally hand-picked for you) with a guaranteed turnaround time of 48 hours.
Final thoughts from Bijal: “I love a challenge, so please send me your most perplexing book dilemmas — I can’t wait to dive in and find the perfect book(s) for you.”
Life to too short for books that are not your type! We look forward to hearing from you.
