How many books could you read if you quit social media?

Omni Calculator asks a few questions about your internet usage and tells you what else you might consider doing instead. And yet, for some reason, I find myself wary of completing an online questionnaire about my online habits. Thankfully it's a simple calculation, writes Emma Charlton: Cutting out three 10-minute social media checks a day means you could read as many as 30 more books a year. Many of us are spending more time on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram than ever before: 2 hours and 23 minutes per day, on average, if you accept GlobalWebIndex’s Flagship Report for 2019.

I do not search on.anything but Delphi. No privacy on the others. Probably get spam if one is not careful.

Do you do social media? Do you have time?

LOL!  I do!  But mostly it's for my book reviews. I'm on facebook ... 2 pages for reviews and I'm also on Twitter ...again, just for my reviews. 

I'm retired ... I have time for almost everything now  :-)

Reviews are more like writing in a newspaper. Do you get feedback on them?

I review mostly for authors and publishers.  A lot of them are Indy authors, so the more places I can post a review about their book, the more they might sell.  I don't really do it for feedback, although feedback is always welcome  :-)

How many books a week do you read?
How the heck do you have time to run a forun, let alone eat and sleep?
