Book review: How To Break Up With Your Phone

In How to Break Up With Your Phone Catherine Price gives the astonishing statistics to our obsession with our phones. The average person looks at their phone almost 100 times a day. The fact that there is enough subject matter to even write such a book on this topic is crazy to me. But it's true. At least I know that I spend way too much time on my phone.

Catherine talks about how to approach spending less time on your phone, and managing it, instead of it managing you.
She talks about ways to at least become more aware of the time spend on our electronic devices.

I know that this in particular is a great challenge to me, since I also use my phone for work, so I kinda need it near me a lot of the time. However, that is still not any excuse to let it run my life. I've been making it my goal to be on it less though, and to be more in the moment.  When I'm not working I've been making a conscious attempt to leave it in the other room. Especially when Adam is home and we are all hanging out in the kitchen making dinner.

This is a short, easy read, that is thought provoking and guaranteed to make you think twice before picking up your phone.


  1. Wow, 100 times a day. That's amazing and horrifying. This sounds like an interesting nd helpful book!

    1. Hi Angela,
      Yes, it was a really good book! I liked that it was also so short, and to the point.

  2. I was thinking of you since Blogging For Books is closing. I had a feeling this was coming, they hadn't provided as many books as they once did for about a year.

    My favorite review source is Book Look Bloggers for Zondervan and Thomas Nelson. They always have a wide selection to choose to review, including a lot of good kid's books. I couldn't remember if you review for them or not, yet.
