Discussion: Quitting Social Media For a Month(!)

Hello Everyone,

Lately it feels like I’ve not been reading as much as I have been. And my blog (not to mention Netgalley) is suffering from it. I’ve been on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram-doing everything BUT reading and it shows. I barely managed to read 22 books and at least eight of them I dnf’d!

This brings me to my idea. A month where I put my phone down and read. I don’t really watch a lot of tv-mostly just YouTube. I’m going to avoid all that, and ignore my laptop too. At the end of each week, I can have my laptop for a day. But my phone stays on my bookshelf to be ignored.

My goal is to read 50 books in a month. Normally I average about 20. I really want to double that number at the very least. Starting tomorrow at the beginning of March, bye-bye social media. My exceptions for my phone? Phone calls from family, checking on my buddy reads on Twitter (briefly!) and using my laptop to write a review when I finish reading the book. That’s it.

That means no games. No YouTube. No Twitter. I have Hoopla on my phone and I will read the books that I have on it. Otherwise? I’m to avoid my phone 24/7.

Then, when April rolls around (how can April be here already?!?) I take a look at my stats and see how I did. If I reach my goal…well, I’m still thinking about rewards. Ideas would be welcomed.

Hopefully this whole plan works. Otherwise I’m going to scream into the abyss lol.

So. I’ll be posting more reviews. And that’s about all I’m allowed. (And WWW Wednesday of course.) Otherwise. I’m going quiet y’all. Wish me luck! 🤞

Until next time,

-Pass Me That Book
