While many individuals living away from their families are accustomed to celebrations – such as birthdays, anniversaries, and festivals on a virtual platform, the restrictions in movement due to the coronavirus threat have hampered the spirit for many unaccustomed to the virtual norm.

Getting a physical book may not be possible in this lockdown, but they can surely enjoy these e-books of super inspiring biographies on their smartphone and unwind after a long, stressful day.
