At this point in social distancing, we’re all looking for new ways to keep ourselves entertained. You’ve binge watched the latest Netflix releases, cooked new Pinterest-worthy recipes and brought the dog on 12 walks a day. So now what?
Enjoy a little “me time” by joining a virtual book club! As you are reading those words, you may be having PTSD flashbacks from your high school English class. Let me start off by saying the MANY book club options in 2020 are diverse, unique, fun and cater to your interests. They also all work differently – some involve virtual books and discussion groups, while others allow you to connect with others via social media. While diving into a good book or virtually enjoying a cup of coffee with a fellow reader, be sure to stay connected with your Greenlight fiber-optic internet. It’s 5x faster and $20 cheaper than cable Internet! Can you imagine clicking through your murder mystery e-book with only 20 pages to go, and all the sudden you lose internet connection?! If you are a Greenlight customer, you do not have to worry about any buffering, lag time or slow loading speeds. Sign up for service today and check out some of our favorite virtual book clubs to join below:
Basics of Britt: For the reader who NEEDS a hard copy of the book.
ROCHESTER LOCAL SPOTLIGHT! Britt Petrone is a Rochester-native who is getting creative in quarantine. She began a book exchange through social media. After she posts with the details, those who expressed interest would receive a private message of where to send a book (which can be done safely through Amazon or other online shops!). Britt makes sure that anyone who is participating sends 1 book, but could receive many more! If you’re interested in staying connected through books, follow her Instagram account linked above and send her a message!
