This great essay featured in the December 2018 issus of Canadian Living describes how the author replaces Netflix with unread books as her ‘avenue of self-care’. Netflix was my favourite sport, binge watching new shows within a week was a worthwhile challenge. However lately I find the task of choosing something worthy to watch from the bottomless Netflix catalogue very tiring. Surprisingly a good book can be just as entertaining as a good Netflix show. See if this essay will help you reach for that unread book on your bookshelf!
