So, my encouragement to everyone today is to take the book you’re reading or maybe find a new book to read and take some time in a quiet place, get some coffee or tea, and read in peace. Go a step further and put your phone on silent and in the other room. Remove distractions for a decent hour at least.
I admit, sometimes I wish our connectivity through technology could be set back a decade or two. Since that’s not possible, it comes down to our having to be proactive and turn off the connectivity manually. I mean to do this more, especially on the weekends. There’s something about reading a book (not an ebook) that is comforting to me. I think it’s important not to lose this odd connection of immersion into fiction or nonfiction (whatever your preference).
Call to Action: Do yourself some good peace and quiet and enjoy a book today. Don’t feel pressured to read a certain amount of pages or chapters. Just read to your heart’s content. Share with me what you’re reading too!
