The coronavirus has led to many businesses shutting down. Factories have stopped working; retail stores have become ghost towns and restaurants have only been occupied and fully booked by dust. Another major business sector that was heavily hit by the Covid-19 pandemic is bookstores.
Nonetheless, online shopping saw a surge in popularity and individuals around the world have put the wonders of the internet and globalization to good use. Bookstore owners have observed a renewed thirst for reading as people spend most, if not, all of their time indoors.
“With people in confinement and detached from those they want to be with…I believe that’s the need we’re addressing when we sell books right now.”said Elliot, owner of the A Different Drummer Books store.
Why are books still a “thing” in 2020?
Two words: Comfort and Escape. That’s the void books are filling nowadays. Books further help you take a step back to re-evaluate your life and priorities. Nowadays this is important more than ever after a stressful life working long hours. Most people don’t want to spend so much time on their screens. So… what are they doing? One trendy thing to do, during this pandemic, was baking banana bread. But let’s be honest… how many banana breads can you bake before you lose your mind?
Just by picking up a book for leisure or educational purpose, it really shows us how much time we waste on our phones. Books are so broad. You have fiction, drama, sci-fi, or even historical ones. There is something comforting about retreating to the past and reading a historical novel.
