The book I’ve been waiting for is here!

Ignore the Latin declensions in the background…

 

Today, Amazon* delivered my pre-ordered copy of Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism to our front door. I was so excited I started reading it right away. Life being what it is, I only got as far as the introduction before I had to put it aside, but I’m enjoying what I’m reading so far.

Stay tuned for a review in the near future!

*Yeah, I ordered it from Amazon. I’m making a concerted effort to reduce the number of dollars I send the way of Mr. Bezos, but sometimes my American addiction to convenience gets the best of me.

    Due to his politics or Amazon politics? I’m out of the loop…

    Did you read/review his book Deep Work? I don’t see a “search this blog” box here and don’t know how to find a specific book’s review.

    It’s partly the politics and partly the problems inherent with supporting behemoths rather than brick and mortar or smaller businesses, particularly independently owned businesses.

    I did read Deep Work, although I didn’t review it. It was a good book, but my current station in life doesn’t really offer me the kind of margin to engage in deep work of the kind he refers to on a regular basis.

    With a houseful of people, homeschooling, teaching, helping my husband in the ways he needs and keeping house, I literally have to snatch half-hour bits of time whenever I can to engage in shallow work, LOL.

    A blogger I really enjoy wrote her thoughts about the book here:
