‘Shelf Indulgence’ is an online reading group via Microsoft Teams, which takes place on the first Thursday of each month at 12:00. Meetings last just 30 minutes, giving you a chance to log on over lunch during your busy working day.
Why should I join LTHT's online book club?
- For a wellbeing break
- To a share a love of literature
- To meet new people
- To expand literacy skills
- or all of the above!
We aim to choose books that are under 350 pages, covering a variety of genres, both fiction and nonfiction. A limited number of hardcopies can be collected from the library 1 month from the date of the next meeting. If you would like to borrow from our limited stock please join our library first and reap the benefits of being a library user. We can also deliver the book to your workplace through the internal post.
Demand may be high on some titles so we will aim to select books that have a broad availability through local library ebook and eaudio schemes such as Borrowbox and Overdrive. We can also provide the first chapter scanned.
A week before the session, questions will be sent out about the book for us to discuss as a group. This is not an exam but just an opportunity to stimulate conversation. Please do not feel pressured to have fully formed answers.
The day before the session you receive an email with the Teams link for you to join.
You don’t have to be a member of the library to join, nor do you need to have read the full book. This is just a chance to share some joy with fellow book lovers and try something new.
Any member of Leeds Teaching Hospitals staff can join in. Just fill in your details below and we will be in touch.
Next meeting Thursday 5th of October 12:00. Reading 'My Sister, the Serial Killer' by Oyinkan Braithwaite
