“Because I was having such a hard time coping with all the negative comments left by netizens, someone recommended to me a psychiatrist. I went, and while getting treatment for depression, fell in love with reading,” said Sol B.
The entertainer confessed that she never used to read as a hobby, but it all changed when her therapist told her to go to a bookstore for homework.

“I went along just because I had to, but while I was there I became interested in reading.” The singer said that she was touched by various inspirational books and now took to reading as a way of relieving stress.
