I certainly will, it sounds to be a wonderful book and reading experience. Uplifting, can't get enough of it!

Cornflower

It is uplifting, Kathleen, and I feel all the richer for reading it!

Anne B-A

Coincidentally am planning on being in a bookshop tomorrow - will add it to the pile! Thank you.

Cornflower

You're welcome, Anne - as you can no doubt tell, I enjoyed it enormously.

Tonya

I wish I could find this in the US. This is something that is currently affecting a member of my family (and has been for 2 years). It seems as if it will never end at times. Thank you for the recomme dation.

Cornflower

Tonya, you might like to consider getting the book from The Book Depository ( https://www.bookdepository.com/The-Reading-Cure-Laura-Freeman/9781474604642?ref=grid-view&qid=1519200210401&sr=1-1 ) as their prices are usually quite competitive and crucially they offer free worldwide delivery.
Meanwhile, I wish your family member well. From what Laura Freeman writes, recovery can take a long time, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Good luck.

Nicola

I'd read a review of this book in the Sunday Times and though it would maybe be too dark to be an enjoyable read but your review has made me want to read this. Thanks, Karen.

Cornflower

You're welcome, Nicola. I'm not one for misery memoirs, but this book, despite coming from a dark place, is original and so much 'brighter' than you might expect.

Sara

I am halfway through reading this amazing book and completely agree. There are some really powerful pieces of writing tucked up inside her love of books!

Cornflower

Glad you're liking it too, Sara, and you're right about the powerful pieces!
