Hi, I'm new to the site and the subject as well. I've always been interested in psychology but never really studied a lot about it. I plan to be majoring in it but I still have some time left before school starts. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any books I could read or ANYTHING. I'm kind of wandering in the dark. Thank you so much! I would love to talk anyone about anything.
Thank you,
Ashley

The field of psychology is so broad it's difficult to know what to suggest to you.

Is there anything that particularly interests you?

Otherwise, I mught suggest that you try looking for one of the Introductory Psychology or Introduction to Psychology books at one of your local libraries -- those will give you an overview of the field and usually will have suggestions for further reading.

Another option is the magazine Psychology Today, although their articles tend to be a bit sensationalistic.
