I mostly read fiction, so they get two bookshelves (and this is after weeding 1/4 of the collection to donate to the library). The shelves came from craigslist – 0 for four of them, which I stained myself. More information on my website.

Question by Veronica: What’s a really good fiction book that deals with psychology?
I absolutely love psychology and I was wondering what good fiction books are out there that have to do with it. Like, for example, Flowers for Algernon. I absolutely loved that book.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
This is a fantastic story told from the point of view of a patient in a psychiatric hospital. The movie featured Jack Nicholson and is also quite good.
