Why You Can’t Resist Clickbait Headlines….


If you’ve followed the tweet or Facebook post to get here, you already know the answer.


Curiosity is not a bad thing. It’s “A strong desire to know or learn something.” So put that desire to good use, get off the internet and go read a few good books that might stay with you longer than an article about why you should never stare at a monkey. 😀 The Guardian has a wonderful list of the 100 best non-fiction books.  And if you’re interested in Japan, check out this list from Booklust (And yes, my book is amongst them 😉).

If you like to travel and learn, then Nancy Pearl’s Book Lust to Go: Recommended Reading for Travelers, Vagabonds, and Dreamers is a wonderful book, that also will introduce you to many good books.

Take some time to satiate your curiosity with a good book for a while. The internet will still be there when you get back. And if you really want to know why you’re curious in the first place, then read Why?: What Makes Us Curious.
