"There are books that are suitable for a million people, others for only a hundred. There are even remedies--I mean books--that were written for one person only...A book is both medic and medicine at once.” -- The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
I remember absolutely loving the concept of the “Book Apothecary”. In George’s novel, Jean Perdu is a book seller who will not prescribe the book you want, but gives you the book you need. Whether the book is a cure for heartache, loneliness or one of the many other conditions that affect people, it’s a wonderful idea to me because I truly believe books are so magical and can help you heal. So I’m taking on the role of the book apothecary (or let’s say book doctor) just for you Cambridge!

If you’re feeling apathetic, try a Lee Child-esque kick-butt action novel to get your blood pumping:
Feel free to chime in with books that you would recommend to people!
