LuckyVV | 5 comments Hello,

I'm trying to find a book I saw in my library this year but did not read. It was written by a man, in english, and the book had a blue cover (I'm talking about the French version of this book). I think the author's name was very short, maybe 3 letters, and I think there was a "thumbs down" (or up) picture on the cover.

It is an essay published in late 2017 or 2018, about the "dangers" of Facebook and such social networks, a bit lit "I hate the Internet" by Jarett Kobek. I'm not sure, but when I shifted thourgh it I think I saw excerpts from Facebook.

Thanks, and I hope to find it soon !

LuckyVV | 5 comments No, that's close but that's not it. The book I'm talking about is very recent, published in 2017 or 2018.

LuckyVV | 5 comments Not these books. I think the title was very short, maybe 3 words at most, shorter than the two titles you proposed.

I imagine so. And LuckyW, glad you now know what your book is!

LuckyVV | 5 comments I didn't know the original cover and the original title were so different from the French version. Thanks again for your help everyone !
