Dear readers, hope you all are staying safe and following the covid prevention measures rigorously. There is a lot that has changed in our life in the last year and this includes my inclination towards reading more books. I caught the virus and it took every ounce of energy in me to fight it. Reading books was one of the major ways that helped me in keeping my sanity intact.
What has changed since the pandemic hit us?
The choices of the books that I read and still reading, during this quarantine era are pretty eclectic. From hardcover books to the Kindle version, I managed to get my hands on so many books that at one point I was reading three books at a time and mixing up all the stories like a cereal mix. Books like Born a Crime by Trevor Noah and Norwegian Wood by Murakami will be the highlight of my last year’s read.
Do you love reading just one book at a time or you switch between different books and finish the one you enjoy the most?
I currently have three unfinished books which I am reading simultaneously and believe me, all three are equally gripping. The pandemic affected a lot of us and I struggled not just physically but mentally too. It took time to get back to my normal routine and books played an integral part in this.
How to improve your reading habit?
Many of us found our hidden passion during the lockdown and indulged in it. For me, painting is my newfound love, and watercolors are my new muse. Reading books never took a backseat however I let myself lose with different genres instead of just sticking with my favorite one. The kind of books I read so far covers different genres and it made me realize that romance is not the only genre that makes me glued to the book but mythology, humor, and thriller are equally enticing too.

P.S. I mistakenly picked up a horror story during washing the utensils at night and by the time story got over I was scared to even use the washroom alone.
All in all the goal is to get into the world of books as it helps in keeping the anxiety or depression at bay up to some extent which seems to be going to affect us on a larger scale due to all of us being confined within these four walls.
