self-help books?

Can any of you recommend good self-help books for depression (and possibly anxiety)? I can't afford actual face-to-face therapy rn but I wanna start working on getting better regardless, and I thought I'd give books a go.

Do you experience anxiety or depression more in the summertime? or are there any other mental disorders that become worse?

I'd say summer is hard for my anxiety with so many chores/activities and jobs to do when the weather is not so bad to do them. But i feel clammy when heat rises, making me depressed and isolate.

Do you check your 'team activity'?

I just wondered who checks their team activity?
