Lately though, I've been distracted by other things. Bookish things, but things that are taking away that precious reading time. I'm sure that some of you share my bookish distractions, so I thought I'd confess them here:
- BookTube. I love the blogging community, but have lately discovered ANOTHER reading community on YouTube. I love that this corner of the Internet is called BookTube, and have spent hours watching book hauls, unboxing, and TBR videos. In fact, I started to feel like I was spending more time watching people talk about reading, than the time I actually spent reading!
- Book Outlet. Ever since my very first book order last month, I have spent a lot of time combing through the site, looking to see if there's any new books that I'd like to order. I received a $5 coupon with my order, and I think it's burning a hole in my pocket!
- Goodreads. I don't spend a ton of time on Goodreads, but I do like popping on to see what my friends are reading, or have recently added to their TBRs.
- Instagram. I'm new to Instagram, and still haven't quite figured it all out, but I love checking out my feed each day, especially beautiful bookish pics!
Do you suffer from any of these bookish distractions? I have enjoyed the time that I've spent on all of these sites, but I'm definitely going to be focussing on more reading time and less time online being distracted by bookishness! How do you balance it all? Last year, I shared about feeling out of the loop, and I feel that these bookish distractions are along the same vein. I still haven't been on Twitter in who knows how long, and most of my online time is spent watching, rather than interacting. Instagram is definitely allowing me to connect a bit more, which I'm loving, but I do feel a bit shy just jumping back into a community that I love, but have been absent from for so long. How do you guys juggle it all? Let me know in the comments below -- hopefully I'm not the only one who struggles with this =)
