It's Screen-Free Week -- Go outside!

No post from me today. I'm participating in Screen-Free Week!



Go outside and play. Draw a picture. Read a book. (Okay, I admit I'll still be checking my email and writing, but I'm saying no to blogging, facebook, Twitter, and TV. Ulp!)

I'll be back next week with a new middle grade recommendation. Have you joined Deb Marshall's May reading challenge yet?

  1. Yay for you! I wasn't aware of screen-free week, but it sounds great.

  2. Heh I wasn't aware of this but I'm going outside today anyways.
    See you next time when you post something new. :)

  3. Love this - even authors need to dust off and look around :) Best way to find some inspiration!

  4. Hmmm, since I'm reading blogs, I'm definitely not partaking of screen-free week. Though it's not a bad idea... Let us know how it goes for you, Joanne.

  5. I hadn't heard of this either, but it's a great idea. I find it amazing and appalling how addicted I feel sometimes. I did have a mostly screen free weekend. Does that count? :)

    1. Sure it does, Cindy! (I'm answering this weeks later, because of course I wasn't online that week!)

  6. Posting this and then GOING OUTSIDE. I need to step away from the screens more often! And, yes, doing the May challenge. Can't wait.

  7. This is a fascinating concept! I struggle to avoid my electronic gadgets for even an hour or two, and if my phone signals an email at night, I will probably wake up and read it! Obsessed much... yes! I participate in the A-Z Challenge during the month of April, if this started just a few days later I would be very tempted to try it. I know that much doesn't get done in my life because I am always in front of a screen... or two... or three! :-)

    1. You should try it sometime, Josie. Don't worry about the official one; make your own screen-free week. It's probably best while you're on vacation!
