Virtual Events – The Latest Pain


Everyday without fail, I receive at least one hundred invitations to virtual events on Goodreads and Facebook. A virtual event? What the hell is a virtual event? You either have one or you don’t. Then there is the fact that I’m very comfortable on my old sofa, sipping my glass of red, and don’t feel at all like moving my butt to an event of any description.

Now it has only been since last century that we have been using this key on a
