The Sunday Salon (Mar. 8): Distractions

The Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb Nance at Readerbuzz each week.

So I think what I’m going to do is stay OFF of Twitter, because it’s stressing me out, and focus only on doing blog posts/comments/etc. I mean, I have an automated thing which should cross-post my new blog posts to Twitter, but other than that, I think I’ll just…be over here.

Another stress: I have still not finished any of the books I posted about two weeks ago, and in fact have started ANOTHER book and have yet to finish that. Very difficult to blog about books when you aren’t finishing any of them, tbh.

Things that distract me from books: TikTok videos, podcasts, Pluto TV which has Mystery Science Theater 3000 marathons all day, worrying about the future, social media, etc. etc.

A positive: I did very quickly read two graphic novels on the last day of February, and I plan to write reviews for them this week.

Another positive: I took this picture the aforementioned newly started book and like how it came out:

  1. You are wise. I’m doing a pull away from social media today (well, except blogging). I need to get away from the constant shrill sound of coronavirus and political debate. I find that I do not feel happy when I live in that world.

    Your Elegance of the Hedgehog Instagram photo is beautiful. I hope you like the book as much as I did. Of course it’s set in Paris and I love everything set in Paris.

    Have a lovely week!

  2. I’ve found in the last four years that curtailing social media has been essential to my sanity. I still stay informed, but, yeah, with a whole lot less of the shouting.

    Hope you have good reading week!

  3. FINISHING BOOKS IS HARD. The news is horrible and finishing books is hard. I finished one because a, it was short, and b, I was in the car as a passenger for a really long time and that was enough time to read a short book. Maybe I should hop a train to California? That would be a lot of reading time. I would probs read all fanfiction and romance novels.
