Our round up of isolation time reading materials, both digital and printed.

Isolation Inspiration Series

We have created a series of articles containing ideas to keep you entertained and inspired during isolation, including things to read, watch, experience and listen to. We hope you enjoy exploring our suggestions and if you have any ideas of your own please do write them in the comments section at the end of the article.

Read

 

Isolation time presents us with an opportunity to dive into such a wealth and diversity of reading materials that it can almost seem paralysing; where on earth do you start? What will you find interesting? Do you want to learn, or be entertained, or both? 

 

Establishing what you want to gain from the reading you will do during this period of isolation will help you then hone in on what to read. Whether it's to open your mind and discover something new, or learn more about a specific topic, there is an abundance of resources out there. We have listed a small selection below to get you started.
