Well-being Book Club

Myself, Rose (@rosewiltshire) and Alex (@AJ628studentMH) were discussing books over Twitter and came up with the idea of an online book club. The idea is that we choose and read one book a month as a group, then we can chat on Twitter or review the book on our blogs or both. The book will be themed around self help/mental health/well-being, our hope is that the books will be helpful and that we will all benefit from the community feel of the project. At the end of each month we will host a Twitter chat and everyone is invited to write a review about their experience of the book. Links to the reviews will be posted on this page so that we can browse through each others reviews. If you don’t have your own blog you can email me your review and I will post it for you.

February’s winning book is Sane New World by Ruby Wax. The live twitter chat will take place on Saturday 21st February 7-8pm UK time.

January’s book is Feel The Fear And Do it Anyway by Susan Jeffers. If you have written a review of the book, feel free to send me the link @CalmKitchen as I am compiling a list of reviews.

Feel free to comment below if you are joining in =)
