Welcome to my Bookshelf!
Grab a coffee / tea, pull up a comfy chair and let's get started
I have (so far) a collection of 30 odd eating disorder related books - some memoirs, some fiction, some text books, some YA books, some adult ones, in general a mish-mash of everything. It's mainly centred on anorexia, but has some about bulimia and ED-NOS/OSFED too. Seeing as so many people ask questions on here like
"Can you recommend an ED book?"
"What do you think of 'X', should I bother reading it?"
"Can you get a free pdf?"
etc etc etc and I am currently re-reading my entire collection, I thought I could collate a lot of the info into one larger thread. Each month I will submit a review of one of the books I have, say what I liked about it (and what I disliked) and invite others to comment on it for the week. If I can find a pdf link I will post it.
Anyone is welcome to pitch in and comment, either on the books I have already reviewed, or on one that you would like to discuss regardless.
Also, please 'follow' if you want me to reply to a comment because I only have IE on my computer and so my quote function doesn't work, so you wouldn't get that notification that I had replied to you....
