Rader's imagination leaned more toward world-building in computer games than toward books, but I have always been a voracious reader. My family flew across the country last Saturday and back yesterday, and I finished three books on the trip, two of which are relevant here and I will recommend. On the way there, I read "Confessions of a Funeral Director: How the Business of Death Saved My Life," by Caleb Wilde. (He has a blog and a Facebook page; look him up!) Then I started "The Year of Magical Thinking," by Joan Didion, which I finished on the way home. I read both on Kindle, and found myself digitally highlighting several passages in each.
I would like to work on a "recommended books" section of the website, as part of what is now the "suicide prevention resources" section. That section already includes not just suicide prevention links, but mental health and grief resources as well. The book recommendation section also will cover all three topics: suicide, mental health, and grief.
For now, though, here are links to two lists already compiled by the folks at What's Your Grief, one of the outstanding resources we recommend.
Edited to add: The book recommendation section is now up and running! There is a link to it at the bottom of the suicide prevention resources page, but here's one as well.
