Stay connected this lockdown
If your online life in lockdown is lacking stimulation, we hope this range of virtual experiences from your University can help.
Virtual Book Club
Whether you're a serious bibliophile or more of a casual paperback-on-the-beach type of reader, join our virtual book club and find like minded souls to share opinions on a wide range of novels, nonfiction-titles and more. All from the comfort of your own home.
The next book up for discussion is Humble Pi, by Matt Parker. The reading period of this book will be 14 October to 17 December.
And it's still not too late to join in the discussion about our first book, The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig. We will continue to discuss this novel until 13 October, with virtual book club members still eligible for a 15% discount, courtesy of UBIQ University Bookshop.
