    Does anyone have any suggestions of books that have pulled them out of a depression or at least made them feel a little bit better?

    I'm not personally affiliated with any particular religion, and this is going to sound terrbly clichéd, but how about the Bible? Or any form of religious scripture, for that matter.

    I particularly enjoy the Onion books('This Dumb century'?etc.)you know, those mock newspaper articles...
    they address the same shit that depresses me
    but in a totally cynical, funny way!
    also see theonion.com
