Book Blogger Hop January 31st - February 6th: The Area Code for the U.S. Virgin Islands Is 340

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What is your opinion of bibliotherapy? Do you think this is a useful way of dealing with psychological issues? If you've used it yourself, or know someone who has, what book(s) would you recommend?

I didn't even know bibliotherapy existed until I started trying to write my response to this Book Blogger prompt, so I don't think I really had an opinion on it. That said, given the fact that behavioral science tells us that almost any form of sensory input or information can change the thinking of an individual, I suppose it could work. The only real question is whether anyone knows the effects of reading particular materials well enough to apply them in a way that is helpful for the treated individual. On that score, I will defer to people who have made it their life's work to study that issue.
