Our childhood for most of us holds some kind of comforting memories, books being one of them. I remember ‘Of Mice and Men’ being one of my favourites.
Do the younger generation read anymore, and when I mean read I don’t mean they’re facebook or twitter feed – we’re all guilty of spending a little too much time on our smartphones.
With just the slightest compromise on your app-trawling habits, you’d be amazed how fast you could get through your book bucket list.
Studies have also shown that those aged 16 and over spend on average 23:06 hours a month scrolling through social media platforms… in that time the following books could’ve of been started and Finished:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Throughout the Looking Glass
The Handmaid’s Tale
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Of course the world we live in today surrounds all things digital so it’s hard to take a long break – especially if your job is digital based, but take some Me time and indulge into a good old book.
