The debut of the iPhone seems to have signaled a tipping point in our culture. A dozen years later millions of us are addicted to our screens; on our televisions, on our computers, and on those now ubiquitous "smart" phones. Tiffany Shlain was just as entranced by technology as the rest of us but about ten years ago she decided to make a conscious effort to draw the line and put up some resistance to all those screens that had taken over her life. Her solution is described in her book "24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week." Do you spend too much time staring at screens? Read this book. The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library , Clark County Public Library , Dayton Metro Library , Wright Memorial Public Library , and Microsun Lamps .
