Shelf Help

logoTwelve Reasons to Feel Better

The Shelf Help list is composed of books that have the power to make life brighter because, as we all know, one of the best ways to feel better about life is through a good book.

Every month we’ll be focussing on one of the twelve books below through a mixture of events, author interviews, critical essays, reading guides and much more. To view previous monthly content, click on the books below.
