It has been a while but I have a favour to ask of you….

Some of you are aware that over the past few years I have been working towards a degree in Psychology (hence the lack of news and posts on this site). However, I am now coming up to the end of this chapter and have a favour to ask.

Here is where you come in…

We share a passion for books and the joy of reading is what started this blog and indeed, WBNW and it is this passion that has driven me through my degree to get to this point. With that in mind, you will not be surprised to learn that I have chosen the area of Bibliotherapy in which to conduct research around the area of Counselling Psychology….and now I need your help.

I am now in the process of collecting data for my end of module project (as part of my dissertation for my BSc(Hons) degree in Psychology with the The Open University).
I am inviting you to be a participant of my survey, the aim of which is to investigate correlations between satisfaction levels and the reading of fictional material.
There is no obligation to take part and all answers are anonymous. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes of your time to complete.
(Should you have any questions relating to me, the Survey or the research, please email me at project@6ac.co.uk )
Please click on the link below to begin.
If you know of others who may wish to participate, please feel free to pass the link on – the more participants, the more data I will have.
Thank you for your time.
Chris Foster

Inspirational quote for us all – Make good art.

20130929-100331.jpg

Most of you by now will probably have come across an extract or a link to the ridiculously talented and creative Neil Gaiman’s Make Good Art speech he gave in May 2012.
The speech was given to students graduating from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts.

If you haven’t, then here is a video of the complete speech which I urge you please to watch. It really is something special:

Make Good Art

The speech has become so well known now you can even buy it as a book!
