Happy National Read A Book Day: How reading benefits your mental health and wellbeing

  • The online reading community Goodreads features hundreds of book groups and clubs. You can register for free.
  • The Rebel Book Club is one of the most popular non-fiction book clubs in the world, and features live physical and virtual events for members. Many newspapers and other organisations also offer virtual book clubs, such as The Guardian’s reading group.
  • Five Books invites experts to recommend five books in their specialist area. This could open a new topic area for you and help you develop your own reading schedule/list.
  • If you are constantly on the go, consider trying Amazon’s Whispersync for Voice. The company offers more than 30,000 titles that you can read as ebooks in parallel as you listen to them as audiobooks. Your progress is also tracked between the two formats.
