- A new hashtag on Twitter is helping people find a constructive way to pass the time
- Social media users are recommending and sharing what they are reading
- Even Minister Nathi Mthethwa has gotten involved and encouraged South Africans to pick up a book
With some people, even cabinet ministers, finding it difficult to stay home, one of the best ways to spend the time indoors is with a good book.
Some people are avid bookworms who devour several books a month or even week, while others battle to find the time to curl up with a good book.
With self-isolation being all the rage these days, there are very few excuses that people can use why they can't read a book.
It is a far better way of spending the time than scrolling through feeds on Facebook or Instagram or watching countless hours of TV or Youtube.
A new hashtag has emerged on social media called the #QuarantineBookClub, where people have been posting what they are reading, making suggestions and reacting to the concept and situation we are finding ourselves in.
Here is a couple of the books people are reading, some recommendations and some reactions:
Even Minister Nati Mthethwa recommend the book club!
