“The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy; it lasts when every other pleasure fades” – Anthony Trollope
Quite a number of people have recently told me of their desire to develop a reading habit and have no clue how to begin. Some used to be voracious readers when they were younger but now with jobs, family or kids to think about, their love for reading has naturally waned.

If you are like me who loves the feel of hard copy books and reading them, this may be a frustrating time for you as we have all been compelled to stay at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected almost every country in the world. The opportunity to visit a bookstore to buy your anticipated reads or order online and get your books delivered to you are no more readily available so how do we still keep reading especially at this time when we need it the most?
I started reading ebooks and listening to audio books a little while ago and I have come to love the experience as they are readily available on my mobile phone and tablet which I carry around with me all the time. However, in these times they have become more relevant to me because I still have access to most…
