Reading has always been a favourite past time.  When I was young, I would make weekly trips to the library, checking out a large pile of books and spending days reading in the hammock.

Today, reading is a break, it is my “me time” and a habit that I am trying to share with my children.  Instead of turning on the TV, it is so relaxing to pick up a book and learn, enjoy and think!

Check out my recent interview on the Candy Palmater show talking about my love of books and my Franklin Street Little Free Library:  http://www.cbc.ca/radio/candy/the-candy-palmater-show-for-june-24-2016-1.3650941/full-time-nurse-part-time-tiny-free-library-builder-susan-gibson-shares-her-reading-list-1.3650997

    Hi there! I was at your presentation at Assumption College today and you mentioned a book on mental health but didn’t like how the illness was portrayed. I wanted to recommend a book to you. I’m reading “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” by Ned Vizzini. It’s about a teen boy that wants to commit suicide, but instead emits himself into a mental hospital. For a book about depression and suicide, it’s quite upbeat. So far, I’m enjoying it and I think it would be a good book to write about!


    • Thanks Maya! I will have a look for this one and appreciate you recommendation! Have you read All the Bright Places? I am not sure it has a happy ending but my daughter really enjoyed it. Thanks for participating today and for reaching out! 🙂

        No I haven’t but I heard it’s a good book. I’d love to read it! Any books about mental health (mostly depression) I like to read because it’s very easy for me to connect with the characters. Thank you!
