Take Care of Yourself: bibliotherapy book oasis at ECA Library

As we are now entering revision and exam time at ECA & UoE, ECA Library staff have set up a quiet corner, in the ECA Library, for bibliotherapy purposes! You can take time out from your revision and study to enjoy some inspirational, relaxing, transporting, funny or mindful books chosen by the Library staff, in a tranquil leafy environment.
Remember to take plenty of breaks from revision, and not to skip meals or work too late into the night.
Take care of yourselves.
