Books

Hopefully, you are reading this because you like reading! I know that I would be lost and very fed up if I couldn't read! Books, ebooks, newspapers, magazines, leaflets, posters, google search, the list of reading devices seems almost endless.

What if you have trouble reading because you are dyslexic,or are partially sighted and don't know where to start looking for help? Up to 8,000,000 adults in the UK have difficulty reading. There is a great deal of help out there in this big wide world. Maybe a family member or a friend could help you find what you are looking for.

Another excellent scheme is the Reading Well Library aimed at people who have health problems. What a great idea this is, soon to be nationwide.

With the help of the organisations listed above, many more people will get a chance to read and maybe this will even slow down the demise of so many book shops on the High Street

I read every evening, usually in bed for an hour at least. No matter what time I retire, I always have a book to hand!

Which books do you like to read - romance, comedy, thrillers, factual, autobiographies? The choice is endless. 

How do you choose to read your favourite publications and why?

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Janice and I am the founder of www.OAPSchat.co.uk.This stands for Optimistic and ProActive Seniors Chat. OAPSchat was born in April 2013 as a Facebook page. To date there are over 1460 FB likes. It was in November 2013 that I decided I had enough material and confidence to launch the website.

Since that day, I have been writing articles on all kinds of topics. ranging from hobbies, holidays, food and drink, memories, families, finance and much much more. I now have over one hundred and thirty seven wonderful contributors to date and articles on all different subjects are posted on a daily basis. Over 1400 articles can be read now! Members can comment via disqus, FB and Twitter.

Raffles are held monthly, sometimes more often. A newsletter goes out once a month with my plans for the coming weeks. I am an Independent Happy List Winner 2014 for founding the website.

Loneliness is a big scourge on our society worldwide and the website helps combat this awful isolation by coming together and sharing our thoughts and ideas. OAPSchat is well and truly born now and I hope it will continue to thrive. With your support, I'm confident it will!
