Books are a great way to escape reality, which makes them a saving grace to people suffering from depression.
One woman who turns to books tweeted about how re-reading Harry Potter helps her with her depression and thanked author J.K. Rowling for writing them:
Rowling responded to her fan, saying, "Those stories saved their author, too. Nothing makes me happier than to think that they went out into the world to do the same for other people. Keep that Patronus powerful."
She then answered a follow-up question from another fan who wanted to know which books J.K. reads when she herself is going through tough times.
It turns out the famous writer prefers biographies.
