Before the coronavirus pandemic and preceding lockdown to reduce the spread of the virus, we had enjoyed going to the cinema and the libraries. And now, even as restrictions are being lifted, public places like cinemas and libraries are still shut, or people are sceptical to go to public places.
We guess you would have missed out on the fun in watching the latest blockbuster or catching memories with old movies. Moreover, for the book lovers, you would have missed out getting thrilled with a fast-paced novel, or the knowledge you gain from books. We are going to provide you with online alternatives that will give you the same thrills while at home.
