Technology is a tool, helpful when it wants to work, but I believe it’s damaged our sense of community, of social skills and disconnected us as much as we’ve tried to connect with others

it became clear that technology as much as we believed or hoped it would be, failed in replicating the presence of the people we missed. People who weren’t friends even began to miss each other. The clerk at the local dairy was finally someone to be recognized and appreciated. The forced distancing made us crave contact even with strangers, despite or weariness of the virus. We are social creatures, yes, but there’s nothing like a simple sit-down-and-chat. I hope that we’ve seen through the media guise and learned or at least remembered to appreciate the power of physical contact and verbal communication.

I’m a chatty person so feel free to drop me a message or an email if you want a chat about books or a rant to get them feels off your chest that non-bookish people cannot relate to

I’m Louise, 22, and recent university graduate from the quaint little city of Aberdeen on the North-East coast of Scotland. This is a place for all things bookish; reviews, book hauls, competitions for book related stuff (or just books). I will post about things that interest me but I am limited to my own knowledge and I am always happy for recommendations for new books and series. I mostly stick with young adult/teen fiction, romance, some horror and funny quirky things.

You see, it’s not about ‘likes’. It’s not about ‘shares’. It’s not about ‘numbers’. It’s about you and me. It’s about us. It’s about the content we share from me to you and you to me. That’s what makes this space a place to feel comfortable in.

Come as you are — as you are: yes, you are welcomed and accepted

They’re stressing inclusion of all “genders, body types, sexual orientations, races, stages of recovery, etc.” at the recovery table. Which – is great. Period.
