Chicken Soup for the Soul Makes Its Latest Book for Nurses Free

Much-Needed Inspiration for All Healthcare Workers

COS COB, Conn. No one needs a little Chicken Soup for the Soul more than the healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. And now Chicken Soup for the Soul is making one of its famous books for healthcare workers free. The e-book version of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses is available for download at no charge via Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Google, Apple Books, and other e-book providers.

“My coauthor LeAnn Thieman is a nurse who travels the country speaking to thousands of nurses every year. She and I discussed what we could do to help not only nurses, but everyone involved in this coronavirus battlefrom the cleaning crews to the orderlies to the nurses, doctors and other
healthcare professionals,” says Amy Newmark, publisher and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul. “We want to honor, inspire, and thank them by making the e-book version of our latest book for nurses available for free until at least May 3, 2020. We know nurses and other healthcare workers may be too busy to read now, but we’d love for them to download the book and read it whenever they can.

“My heart goes out to all my colleagues in health care, and I wish I could do more for them,” adds LeAnn Thieman, coauthor of the book and a retired nurse herself. “I hope these selfless men and women will download the book for free. Taking a few minutes of downtime to read a true story or two will help them through this crisis and with their own personal healing. They’ll be reminded how much their patients and coworkers appreciate them. Most nurses and healthcare workers didn’t choose their careers because of great hours, pay and working conditions! They felt a calling, and this book celebrates themfor the patients they heal, the lives they touch, and the fortitude with which they work long shifts, selflessly nurturing others with their hands and their hearts.”

The free e-book version of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses can be downloaded from Amazon, Google, Apple, Barnes & Noble and other e-book providers.

Chicken Soup for the Soul has also made free the e-book version of the original book that started it all, along with 20 bonus stories by today’s most popular motivational speakers and authors. That book, Chicken Soup for the Soul 20th Anniversary Edition, is also available free on all e-book platforms.


Chicken Soup for the Soul publishes the famous Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. With well over 100 million books sold to date in the U.S. and Canada, more than 250 titles, and translations into more than 40 languages, the phrase “chicken soup for the soul” is known worldwide and is regularly referenced in pop culture. Today, 27 years after it first began sharing happiness, inspiration and hope through its books, this socially conscious company continues to publish a new title a month. It has also
evolved beyond the bookstore, with a podcast, education programs, dog and cat food, licensed products, and video, television and movies through its subsidiary, Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment.
