Reading is the best way to keep your brain busy but it is also important to read good stuff to keep your mind calm and fill it with positive thoughts, says Peter Salzano, a book lover, and a famous blogger. But as per the current situation across the world, it is difficult to feel positive. Even for a person who loves to read and keeps himself/herself busy with reading informative articles, newspapers, magazines, etc will find it disturbing and sad to keep reading the same bad news about the coronavirus outbreak. Not just regular readers but everyone these days feel worried and panics when such heartbreaking news keeps flashing on your TV, newspapers, etc.
But books can help you in such a situation. We know that it is important to keep yourself updated with the information and current situation in your country and world due to coronavirus. But you can not read it the whole day. These days even the internet is full of information related to coronavirus but very few share the positive one.
So here is a little attempt made by Peter Salzano to bring some positivity in your life via the medium of books. You can refer to the following motivational books:
