Welcome to the BTUH Book Club

closure

Wish you could read the latest books for free, write reviews for other readers and chat with others about the plot?

Well now you can. Working in partnership, BTUH's communications team, Basildon Healthcare Library and Penguin books, are launching the BTUH Book Club and we're looking for 30 keen readers to join.

The first 30 members of staff who email Communications will be given a book every month and become part of the club. In return, you will be expected to write a short review of the book on Amazon and Good Reads. There will also be a discussion thread on the Hub for anyone who wishes to discuss the book with other members.

If you want to be involved and there are no books left, we will place your name on a waiting list.

If you're interested in being part of the BTUH Book Club please email Nicola Laver at Nicola.laver@btuh.nhs.uk. All names will be registered and the first 30 will be able to collect their free book from the communications office on level K of the tower block.

The first book is called Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey.
