In Welcome to the Forum
In the past two or three months, several friends around me, including myself, have all changed jobs. And it is the kind of changing city, going to Hangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai. When I was moving, I heard a friend complain that he had a lot of books that he couldn't take with him and resold them at a low price, which was very distressing. About: Books, Official Accounts and Douyin Who else has so many books in their room now? I suddenly realized that I hadn't bought a book for a long time. The last time I went to an offline bookstore to buy a book, it should have been "Little Times 3.0 The Golden Age", which I bought nearly 10 years ago. Now I think back on it, I'm still a little ashamed... After the advent of the mobile Internet era, I was more accustomed to buying books on Dangdang and JD.com. Later, I rarely even bought books online, and more job title email list often read e-books on my mobile phone. I read my two favorite books, "Ordinary World" and "Those Things in the Ming Dynasty" on my mobile phone. In the past two years, it has become increasingly difficult for me to calm down and read a book. I haven't entered the state of deep reading for a long time. My reading is scattered in the fragmented scenes of queuing, squatting in the pit, and waiting for the car. Open the official account and Zhihu and glance at the very attractive tofu block written in the title. A recent book I read was Kevin Kelly's "Out of Control" for a simple reason - Zhang Xiaolong said that every product manager should read "Out of Control". It's a 700+ page tome, and it's hard for me to say I actually read it. Why have I lost the ability to read deeply? Is it because the older you get, the more anxious you become and the more you can't calm down? Or in the era of the mobile Internet, I have been distributed a lot of excessive content, and I can't consume it at all, so each one is only a shallow taste? How does the Internet change the mode of content production, filtering, dissemination, and interaction?
