    Hi, you are right there! 2020 has changed a lot for us, including our reading and TV viewing habits. I also feel things would not go back to their earlier normal days. This new way is the new normal. Personally speaking, somehow, I was a binge TV viewer pre if we can write apocalypse 🙂 but now I have become more of a book fan. I have read quite a lot of books, more of fiction in the last one year than in my entire life earlier. Also, I am currently writing a crime trilogy, which is soon to be published. I have also started a blog and I am linking the same here so you could view and share your tips. Thanks and God bless!

    Gosh, there are so many things that have changed in my life since Covid when it comes to media viewing/reading habits! It seems I have less patience for watching anything that isn’t entertaining, so I’m always switching around. And I mostly have the TV on 24/7 on the opposite side of the room while I work. Not really for viewing, but more for listening to have a busier work environment while working from home.
