My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Like a lot of people I know, I spend way too much time compulsively checking my twitter feed or my email or reddit or discord or any one of the several social book sites. I’m in twitter before I even get out of bed. And that’s not setting myself up for a happy morning, to be sure.

I’ve been thinking about how I use various sites and my phone quite a bit. Particularly since I’ve been adding more analog entertainment (crafting and reading with my eyeballs) into my schedule. This book found me at the right time.

There’s a lot of dry info in here but if it’s something that you’re genuinely interested in, the time investment is well worth it. I’ve already cleared off my phone AND had an actual conversation with a friend – USING MY VOICE! I know, it’s a little scary but it felt pretty good.

I won’t be doing the 30 day purge or anything like that, but I will be taking some of the advice and practices with me.
