A few links to sites I like or use regularly (and their Twitter handles)


Amazon Yes we may have our reservations about them, but they do sell a huge range – both physical and e-books – generally at a good price.

Goodreads I use Goodreads to track my reading, search for things to read, and see what others are reading. (Worth noting that Goodreads is owned by…. Amazon!)


History Today Calls itself ‘the world’s leading serious history magazine’, and leans towards the more academic side. 

BBC History Magazine This magazine reflects the history output from the BBC, but also contains much else besides.

Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford A fascinating museum, at first sight old-fashioned by todays standard, but packed full of wonders.  

History Lovers Club Historical photos covering a wide range of subjects, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. 

Whores of Yore Run by Kate Lister, this site aims to ‘make research on sexuality and the history of sex accessible to the general public’. It’s fascinating, as is her twitter feed. 


Crohn’s & Colitis UK The go-to organisation for anyone with Crohn’s Disease or Colitis. They won’t have all the answers, but are the best starting point.

National Osteoporosis Society The main UK-wide charity for Osteoporosis. They won’t have all the answers, but can help point you in the right direction.

ME Association Online resources for those with ME/CFS are vast; but choosing the best is much more difficult  – there’s a lot of quackery out there! This site is one of the better starting points.


Hotel Chocolat Need I say more?
