Latgale Central Library has determined which books were of the greatest interest to visitors last year. The pandemic that began in 2020 gave us more time for self-discovery and self-improvement, allowing us to stop, think, assess our priorities and find time for unfulfilled interests so far.

Last year, LCL readers focused on their mental health: they tried to understand themselves better and actively sought an incentive to change their daily habits. It is quite natural that among the most widely read works of industry literature was a collection of short stories by a psychologist and blogger Anna Kiryanova “Little happiness”, where a number of important tips for a happier life are offered in a light form.

Book Стефани Шталь «Your inner child wants to find a home» (The child in you must find a home) encourages you to listen to yourself and offers effective solutions on how to make friends with your “inner child”.

Books on self-development such as “The Subtle Art of Don’t Care” by Mark Manson and “I want and will be” by Mikhail Labkovsky… The works of these famous authors offer to evaluate their priorities and learn to ignore the opinions of other people.

Among the most widely read works of the past year are books by a psychotherapist, the author of many works on psychological self-help and self-development, Andrew Kurpatova “Red pill. Face it! “ and “Trinity. Be more than yourself! “.

The first book is about the principles of the human brain, control of your mind and getting rid of unwanted stereotypes. The second proposes to distinguish different types of people from the point of view of the neurophysiology of thinking in order to better understand the motives of their behavior and more successfully interact with them.

In the book, a communication expert Томас Эриксон «Only idiots around!» (All around idiots) identifies four models of human behavior and gives advice on how to successfully communicate with representatives of each type at work and in everyday life.

Healthy eating book Alice Kindzule «Ar uzturu uz tu» (With food on you) was also in great demand, as was the “Power of Thought” by the qigong teacher Igor Kudryavtsev about self-healing methods.

Publications about the problems and methods of raising children are always of great interest among the visitors of the LCB. Among the most popular is the book of a psychologist Хедвиг Монтгомери «Parents’ Magic» (Parenting Magic), offering 7 simple steps to success in parenting.

The work of the doctor of psychology and pedagogy was no less popular. Томаса Ликона «How to raise good children» (How to raise kind children) with simple and clear practical advice.
