What To Read: At A Time Of "Social Distancing Due To Virus"

COVID-19, for familiarly known by all as Coronavirus, has pushed us all into our homes and now is not the time to step back out. Probably (or, definitely?) not for a couple of weeks at least. You can't have one single activity to do, that is going to bore you out. So, may be it's time we shake things up, mix things up, and keep ourselves and others entertained. 

One, of them can be to read books.Read books. Oops, I am biased on this one. Finally, we have the time to tick that un-ticked bucket list of pending books. If you're not a reader, this social distancing exercise may just push you to the edge of boredom, and you might just have to grab a book to make sure you don't fall. So, check out and pick one that seems interesting to you. And, what are you waiting for? Give yourself an unputdownable ride.

Maybe, at times like these, you'd want to check out the adrenaline pumping rides with Jack Stapleton in Robin Cook's Contagion? Or, how about you give company to Brian as he wades through life for 53 days in a forest by himself in Gary Paulsen's Hatchet? Also, check out other titles by Cook, that'll give you all the medical thrillers you need.

If you want to binge some good, unputdownable series this couple of weeks, check these out: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, Foundation Saga by Issac Assimov, Ponniyin Selvan by Kalki. R. Krishnamoorthy (English translations), Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke, Lord of The Rings by Tolkien, A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L' Engle, and check out my blog Index for more.

And hey, I gave you a few examples assuming you have read Harry Potter, Hobbit, Chronicles of Narnia and the rest! If not, finish them off this break before they pile up more work on you!

If you want some cool animated films, I have a list under the movies tab!

Stay indoors, chill at home, try out things you've always wanted to try out, read and write (a lot), finish writing a book, or making a music album maybe, but don't go out! Social distancing is important, and it is not without reason that the greatest doctors from all over the world urge you to stay at home! 

Stay safe, and keep yourself engaged!
