I sent out an email to my 200+ coworkers that read “What were the ten best books you read in 2008?” The question is not what the best books were that came out this year, but rather, what were the best books you read during the year. Considering we have 4 offices, are an international company, and are notably an eclectic group, we got some great responses.
My favorite quotes from emails I received:
“A Wolf at the Table: A Memoir of My Father by Augusten Burroughs
I bet I’m the ONLY person who read that one! ”
“Here’s the list of ‘books I read in the past year, despite the fact that only one of them was either published or written in the past year’…”
“Sorry, I’m a loser and mostly only read instruction manuals.”
Without further ado…
