I work in an open plan office and, until about three weeks ago, spent a lot of time checking Facebook and Twitter. I hate both of these things: spending too long trying to work at my desk makes me irritable, even angry, and the social media scrolling left me miserable and frustrated. The three books I read in August address this fragmented mental environment from different perspectives.
- Cal Newport, Deep Work (2016)
- Jaron Lanier, Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now (2018)
- Arnold Bennett, How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (1908)
