#occhat 23rd April 2013 – World Book Night – Reading as an Occupation – Grabchat

Our first chat where our community flew solo without any team members present.

@orlalalalala just saw that tonight’s #occhat is on reading as an occupation, hoping to join in on this lovely #OTuesday (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 18:54:47 +0100)
@BillWongOT I think reading is a nice change of pace occupation. Used 2 b in a book club for a while before my doctorate degree stuff took over. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:05:08 +0100)
@BillWongOT I guess #occhat is like a ghost town today. :((Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:08:05 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Dai2584 maybe? too much soc media can impact quality reading time. i know i check twitter on the bus now when i used to read! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:09:14 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Dai2584 saying that it’s great to be able to find out about news, events, and resources so easily! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:10:41 +0100)
@orlalalalala @BillWongOT it really is! 😦 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:11:04 +0100)
@orlalalalala @BillWongOT i work in a university and they’ve put up shelves recently for students to leave books or take books, it’s really nice! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:12:40 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat hi everyone 🙂 sorry I’m late(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:14:06 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy hi there! i think it’s only just beginning 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:15:39 +0100)
@orlalalalala I’m going from @kirstyes ‘s suggested questions. first off, are you a reader? why/why not? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:18:06 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat definitely luv reading, dream house would have a wall full of them. However books don’t always love me #dyslexic (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:21:01 +0100)
@orlalalalala #occhat http://t.co/Oj42mKOTXZ (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:22:55 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy i was always so jealous of belle’s library in beauty and the beast! do you like audiobooks? i’ve never tried them #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:25:03 +0100)
@dawnyford #occhat I love reading – find it a good way to destress – although when I need it most (NOW doing dissertation) I don’t have time!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:25:37 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat however I think there are less barriers to reading now then there have even been.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:25:43 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala sometimes I listen & follow the words 4 sum reason it works. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:28:09 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat i luv old books cause the pages r cream & I can read them more easily #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:28:43 +0100)
@dawnyford #occhat have listened to audio books (latest, true blood) in bed just b4 I go to sleep. Stops my brain from whizzing & thinking about essays(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:28:59 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat I think the use of kindles etc can be powerful tools to enable people to continue the occupation of reading.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:31:11 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy i love new book smell, but also old book smell! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:31:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford I hear ya- I am on the same boat. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:32:06 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy I do say nowadays sometimes I use Kindle for convenience. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:32:27 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy definitely, when you think what you can download for free! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:32:44 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy I also like that you can zoom in- good for people with vision issues. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:33:48 +0100)
@orlalalalala @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy me too, i love the portability and handiness of the kindle, but love the feel of a book too! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:34:26 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @dawnyford during my degree I stopped reading fiction cause I had 2 much reading 2 do. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:35:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy and now I can access Kindle with my computer, too! So, that’s also nice. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:35:04 +0100)
@orlalalalala #occhat has anyone spoken to OT clients about reading or enabled a person to read?(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:35:12 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @dawnyford 1st thing I did when finishing was get lost in a book nothing OT / health related #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:36:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford nowadays my readings consists of peer review articles. :p #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:36:12 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford That’s why I did book club for a few months too… hopefully I eventually can find my way back #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:36:47 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @dawnyford it’s great when you find a few books or an author that you really get into. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:37:38 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I have used the kindle as it was lighter and easier to grasp then a book #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:37:44 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @dawnyford but it’s also difficult if you’re in a bit of a reading rut. I always ask for recommendations #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:38:25 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford that’s why I think a book club is not a bad idea. All my book club friends are non-OT’s. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:39:05 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala #occhat however new technology can also be a barrier rather then an enabler.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:39:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy I think there are some values of having a book. It provides meaning that u owned something #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:40:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy though I would say it wouldn’t be good to follow my grandpa’s footsteps, though… lol! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:40:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala yes- I bet neither my mom nor my dad would ever use Kindle #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:41:38 +0100)
@dawnyford @orlalalalala @nnikki_duffy @BillWongOT Kindles r cool & very handy but r they as therapeutic as holding a good book in your hands? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:42:31 +0100)
@orlalalalala #occhat i work with young people, a few of my clients like to read people’s experiences of MH difficulties in fiction/non-fiction #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:43:22 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @orlalalalala to be honest I prefer a book and wish I could set the back ground colour better. #occhat #dyslexia (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:43:25 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala yes that can be a great tool. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:44:36 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy RT @orlalalalala : #occhat i work with young people, a few of my clients like to read people’s experiences of MH difficulties in fiction/non-fiction #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:44:40 +0100)
@dawnyford #occhat new tech does seem to be a barrier with older peeps. There r more ‘silver surfers’ out there now so phaps that will change!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:44:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala Back in my #OT students days, I read some accounts from Schizophrenia Bulletin from way back. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:45:06 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I suppose we all do that now and again, read to relate / understand a persons journey, or gain insight. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:46:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I agree- I read a lot of autism self accounts for my own pleasure & my doctorate residency. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:48:35 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT The Center Cannot Hold by Elyn Saks is really fascinating #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:49:09 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 Hiya, just got in. @Nnikki_Duffy Reading is also good to escape into another world #occhat #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:49:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy A pretty popular #autism non-fiction book is Look Me In The Eye #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:50:20 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy I suppose as OTs we need to recognise that when some1 says reading is an interest what part of reading is meaningful to them #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:51:49 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat reading can be social, work, relaxation, emotional. So given that if a person puts reading as an interest what would u ask? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:53:44 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy good question- probably will start off with his/her favorite books. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:54:46 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy Can they access the books they like? Would they like to have contact with others who like reading? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:55:27 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT yeah I would probably ask when they read. Times of stress etc. where they read, what do they love about reading? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:56:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy good one! I am thinking a site like http://t.co/HRLyTnlTG1 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:24 +0100)
@orlalalalala @eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy #occhat http://t.co/V4wdAlBqEd (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:32 +0100)
@dawnyford @BillWongOT @nnikki_duffy @orlalalalala obviously reading a lot of BJOT at the mo. helps with degree. Need some fiction 4 balance! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:58 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala Same- I also read AJOT, Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, and other OT ones, too. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:03 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @BillWongOT Yes, I’m a Goodreads member. Like that I can download samples of recommended books to my Kindle. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:22 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I read a lot of these because I am writing lots of OT conference proposals. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:23 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat what do they love about reading might give clues. Like the runner who can’t run but what was found meaningful was competitiveness(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 or sometimes you can interact with like minded readers across the globe, too. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:31 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 just downloaded that app but never used #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:58 +0100)
@dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @billwongot reading can mean dif things at dif life stages – for me now def work but come June, will be for relaxation #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:01:09 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy haha! Same can be said with strategy books. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:01:30 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy That’s a good point @BillWongOT I think also being able to discuss what u have read is also important to recognise #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:32 +0100)
@orlalalalala @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @eileenhegarty7 i have to leave #occhat now, it was lovely chatting to you all. happy world book night!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:40 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @BillWongOT Must check that out. Don’t have many friends who share my taste for popular science. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy yeah- the type of strategy books I will buy will be on poker. 😉 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:55 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @eileenhegarty7 nice chatting with you… see you later. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:04:31 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy As an OT, you could ask questions to find out what aspect of reading is meaningful to your client. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:16 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford I’m being kicked off computer by a truculent child. Nice chatting with you all. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:24 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala thank u for ur comments hope u have a lovely evening 🙂 #occhat happy world book day(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford see you later! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:43 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT exactly 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:06:16 +0100)
@dawnyford @orlalalalala @billwongot @nnikki_duffy @eileenhegarty7 thanks for ur company tonight- interesting chat. Not a ghost ship after all! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:06:34 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy Does meaning come from being able to socialize at a bookclub? Learning new knowledge for work? Leisure/relaxation? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:07:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy good question- when I did book club, it was the 1st one mostly. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:08:55 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @BillWongOT Sorry I was late to the #occhat . Just wanted to pop in and say hi.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:10:11 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT stress reduction, emotional, traditions, role. The list can go on, shame that this is not explored more #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:10:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford actually is not late at all- no grabchat until tomorrow. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:04 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT but I think that can make a good occupational science article. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:34 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat I will never look at reading on a persons interest checklist the same way again :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy good take home point. Reading can lead you to know something more about a client. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:12:57 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat I need to always think.. what is meaningful, what is meaningful, what is meaningful. Keeps us OT focused :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:15:00 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @Nnikki_Duffy : #occhat I need to always think.. what is meaningful, what is meaningful, what is meaningful. Keeps us OT focused :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:16:24 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy I think we all do. We should never be on auto-pilot, even if we are experts in a particular #OT area. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:17:18 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat thank u all for ur insight sorry I need to pop out. C u all again next week. Happy world book day :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:19:01 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy RT @BillWongOT : @Nnikki_Duffy I think we all do. We should never be on auto-pilot, even if we are experts in a particular #OT area. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:19:11 +0100)
@BillWongOT Turns out today is a pretty good day on #occhat – slow start, great finish!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:19:56 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy RT @BillWongOT : Turns out today is a pretty good day on #occhat – slow start, great finish!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:20:53 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy it would be interesting to study the meaning of reading in different groups of people #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:21:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy Now we just need an occupational scientist who is willing to study all that. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:22:23 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy for example, parents of children with autism or adults with a cancer diagnosis. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:22:39 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy Reading would probably provide meaning for both groups, but in very different ways. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:23:18 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy or you can start planning a study to present it at WFOT in 2018. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:23:41 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT @billwongot great research proposal think of all the of times reading has been wrote down without a 2nd thought. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:24:21 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy For me, I know having a book club keeps me on my toes, as I needed extra push to read non-OT stuff. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:24:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT anyone wants to spear head this anywhere? COT? AOTA? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:25:19 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @abbypediatricot just think of all the ideas 4 research that have come from #occhat great resource 4 OT students #dissertation (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:28:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT but I think it will be good conference presentation topic. Something I didn’t think of b4 today. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:30:13 +0100)

@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT perfect title “reading between the lines” #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:41:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy yup… now you got to find the #otgeeks to support you (or you can always go solo) #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:41:52 +0100)
@Shahar_kar RT @Nnikki_Duffy : #occhat definitely luv reading, dream house would have a wall full of them. However books don’t always love me #dyslexic (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:42:32 +0100)
@Dai2584 @orlalalalala #occhat . I thought that about quality reading but I think I read a lot more now that I have smart phone. what is quality?(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:47:44 +0100)
@kirstyes @orlalalalala @billwongot That sounds great. #occhat my only problem would be the leaving. Tend to be a book horder.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:10:42 +0100)
@claireOT Didnt we have any team members available for tonight’s #occhat ? @kirstyes @Helen_otuk @ShaanOT @cgenter @clissa89 @OTalk_Occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:11:44 +0100)

@kirstyes @Nnikki_Duffy not sure, I’ve not actually tried it just heard about it. #occhat It wouldn’t do PDFs but assume all kindle format/converted(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:18:10 +0100)
@kirstyes @Nnikki_Duffy Also assume this is on kindle rather than apps. #occhat though tablets may have their own accessibility options.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 22:18:41 +0100)
