“Nothing” is neither a luxury nor a waste of time, but rather a necessary part of meaningful thought and speech. If I were to follow Jenny Odell’s advice in How To Do Nothing, I would not be posting this, but rather, I’d arrange to meet you in our local library where we could discuss her ideas and maybe challenge a few. Doing so would allow us to move beyond connectivity (something Instagram holds sacrosanct) to sensitivity, which “involves a difficult, awkward, ambiguous encounter between two differently shaped bodies that are themselves ambiguous.” Posting a pretty picture doesn’t even really communicate how amazing I thought Odell’s book was and how it’s shifted my focus away from my screen and onto the things that really matter to me. #amreading #bibliophile #booknerd #bookgram #bookstagram #bookphotography #instabook #Bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #2019books #booklovers #bookworm #bookish
