When you are alone, there is no better friend than a Book. I always participate in Goodreads yearly challenges, but most of the time they remain unachieved. 2020 restricted us in our houses and away from our closed ones. This brought the opportunity to explore new dimensions of life. I was never a fan of digital media so Kindle was a big no for me, but eventually I had to accept it.
Libraries were closed and I was stuck in India during nationwide lockdown. I downloaded Kindle app and mobile was now my book store. I always preferred hardcovers, so it was tough to adjust initially, but soon I started enjoying it. Prime members get lots of free content and in addition to that I accidently opted for Kindle Unlimited (premium service with accessibility to more content), which was like a boon.
Libby app, whose reference I got from my library, also needs a big mention here. This app allows you to checkout Kindle/Libby compatible books from your library. Thus even though libraries were closed, I was able to borrow digital titles from there, that too from thousands of miles away.
My goal was of 45 books, but I exceeded it by 20 books, thus making total read titles as 65. Below is the list with ratings :-
