Lockdown, quarantine and isolation were the terms we were alien to a few weeks ago. With a pandemic on the loose, we slowly became accustomed to these terms and the conditions that it posed. While social distancing is the simplest way to curb the spread of the disease, it may not be as simple as it sounds. It is all about embracing a temporary change for the permanent good.
Social distancing is bringing us closer to the digital distance, at least some were consciously maintaining. If digital detox was the most hyped activity on social media, we are now searching online for ways to stay afloat during the pandemic. While we rethink our priorities, it is quite sure that majority are using this time to revive the long lost habit of reading. If paperbacks were the ultimate solution to instill the art of reading irrespective of any social or cultural discretion, the lockdown and its aftermath could lead to an e-book revolution, which could be a new habit handed over to us as a result of the proximity and inevitability of the digital space in the current situation.
The heavy traffic witnessed by the e-books website of DC Books is an evidence that reading is still a popular activity and the digital versions, which were believed to be restricted to a niche audience are now popular kids on the block. The website has witnessed over 1.5 lakhs downloads in the last 48 hours.
The e-book give away during these days of lockdown will continue over the coming days with an e-book on offer and other popular titles at 50% discount.
