World Mental Health Day: A Cheeky Lucky Dip…

Happy World Mental Health Day everyone!  I’m very pleased (especially in the current circumstances round the shelf) that the powers that be only require us to have one mentally healthy day per year, so that’s as good a reason to celebrate as any.

Today I present to you a Book Depository Lucky Dip that hopefully suits the occasion – for the uninitiated, the BD Lucky Dip involves me typing a random search term (or terms) into the Book Depository’s search engine and picking the most surprising or giggle-inducing results for your viewing pleasure.

So in thinking about Mental Health (or lack thereof), the terms that sprang immediately to mind were cats, irritating musical instruments and crafting.  Please, sit back, relax, and make yourself feel better by  perusing a lucky dip that may have you questioning the sanity of others and affirming your own….or vice versa.

For the sufferer of paranoia who is also handy with a ball of yarn:

Clearly, I have acquitted myself of my duty on this most important of days, to contribute to the ongoing mental well-being of my readers with this varied and enticing collection.  You can all thank me later.

Until next time, may all your brain receptors be flooded with feel-good hormones,

Bruce

  1. Oh I have to tell you how much I LOVE this!!! When I saw the title, my immediate thought was, “Oh NO–please, not now, I’m just not feeling up to it. I’d sooner jump off a bridge”. But I was intrigued as I read on, and found myself snickering over and over with refreshed joy and goodwill (to continue living, rather than jump). Thanks a million–God bless you! Hope things are going well with the new little one?!

  2. Wondrous additions to the literary-ish world! Fun With the Accordion looks ancient and may well be as my automatic spellchecker thing that I can’t get rid of doesn’t even recognise it as a word. I NEED these books and some cat hair.
