Holiday Season: Time to Read a Book or Two

We’ve got quite a few book worms at GroundFloor Media (GFM) and CenterTable. Then there are the rest of us who (thanks to #content) read a ton of blog posts, tweets and articles throughout the year but don’t get around to reading nearly as many books as we’d like.

One of the many great parts about the holidays is having a few days to dig in, potentially ditch the phone (gasp!), and read a good old-fashioned book or two. Along those lines, here are a couple that come highly recommended from our team, and that tie back to social media/digital strategy, business and company culture. If you’re looking for a few last minute holiday reading recommendations, we hope this helps. Read more after the jump…

Icebreaker: What are you currently reading?

Gone GirlEach quarter, we have our state-of-the-agency meeting. Although many of us have been working together for some time, we always start the meeting with an icebreaker. At our December meeting, the icebreaker was, “What are you currently reading?” It was a lively discussion and had the entire staff scrambling to write down the various titles. The list ranged from the popular Gone Girl to the parenting book How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm: And Other Adventures in Parenting, George Carlin’s autobiography Last Words to CEO of Patagonia’s Let My People Go Surfing: The Education of a Reluctant Businessman. To see more of our staff pick’s check out our Goodreads group bookshelf Dec. 2012 list. You’ll find some serious page turners!
