Technology Blues

I’m having a hard time getting up the gumption to read Christopher Paolini’s book ‘Eragon”. Once I start I’m totally fine, but I only make it a few pages before I distract myself.

The most annoying thing is that it’s not a bad story. I like where it’s going, but for some reason my hands become possessed while I’m trying to read lately and want to play on Pinterest or see what’s happening on Facebook. It’s a sickness. I think I need to start tucking my computer and phone under my bed when I read and completely give myself over. But I get the feeling that if I did that my curiosity and compulsion would get the better of me.

Is anyone else facing a complete and utter addiction to your technology?

Sometimes I find that my phone is in my hand and goofing around on Pinterest for half an hour before I even realize I’ve stopped reading!

It’s the worst!

Constant vigilance.
