message 1: by Wadada (new)

Wadada I can so relate to this feeling when you can't a books match even from the same author.

I'm having trouble picking from the list because some would be on my list and others not so much. I know it's because it's an open list but I like putting my own selection on.


message 2: by SethMantel (new)

SethMantel Who actually believes in something like this? Sure, you can compile a list of books that made you feel this way, but you can't simply transmit it to others as a cure for this "depression". A good part of that feeling warrants "staying" with that book for a while to let it all sink in.
