#AlwaysForPleasure

I had the opportunity to hear Laura Lippman at the Albany Book Festival last Fall. She was a funny speaker and she mentioned her twitter account.

She is a prolific tweeter. Recently she started a conversation about doing something for Lent rather than giving something up. She suggested that everyone read 100 pages a day. The conversation was started when she RTed an article from a NY Times author (Article Here) who said they couldn’t read, watch a movie or keep a conversation without being distracted by their phone. Lippman made the commitment to read 100 pages a day throughout Lent.

She gave it a hashtag:

And a movement is born!

It’s really easy to spend your evenings mindlessly scrolling through any number of social media channels. I’ve fallen prey to it. I’ll be spending Lent recommitting to reading instead on scrolling through social media each night.

Join me! Use the hashtag #AlwaysForPleasure and #LLWL tell me what you’re reading!
