How to get back on the read­ing buzz

Fashion Quarterly - - Life -

• Got a phone with a large screen? Down­load the Kin­dle app and pur­chase e-books – your book will now fol­low you ev­ery­where your phone does. If you’re read­ing at night on an iPhone, se­lect ‘night shift’ in the set­tings to knock back the blue light on the screen and make the colour warmer which will help pro­tect light­sen­si­tive cells in your reti­nas.

• Bet­ter yet, in­vest in a Kin­dle – the anti-re­flec­tive screen and soft back­light makes read­ing eas­ier on your eyes.

• Join your lo­cal li­brary and read for free!

• If you don’t want to com­mit to join­ing a book club, ar­range to swap books with friends in­stead – it’s a great way to get into dif­fer­ent gen­res, too.

• Cre­ate a Goodreads ac­count via or by down­load­ing the app to keep track of what you’re read­ing, what you want to read and fol­low other ac­counts to get rec­om­men­da­tions. Pan­dora and Dolly from The High Low pod­cast have a fan­tas­tic ac­count, and Emma Wat­son’s Our Shared Self is well worth a fol­low for all fans of fem­i­nist lit­er­a­ture.
