The well-read home office…
Why books are a must in every workspace, even at home
Time was when we demarcated leisure and work and gave each the time it needed. Today, the edges of our worlds have blurred and given that we spend more time working out of home than we do in the office, having a superb library for our home office is essential. After all, reading maketh the man, so it is said, and rightly so! No wonder then, that the home office library is one of the hottest trends of this year. Everyone is looking at being counted among the bibliophiles!
Well-read means well-bred is what book lovers believe!
Books remain the commonest form of distilling knowledge and experience about almost every topic known to man. Reading books about your professional and allied domains not only makes sense it also defines you as a thinking professional who brings a wealth of information to the table. So let’s show you how you can incorporate your love for books into your home office.
#Bookshelfies are in!
It’s become a trend for celebs to share their bookshelf or pose with a book. From Celebrity chefs such a Nigella Lawson, to music icons such as Keith Richards, all have been posing with books. Here’s a pic of Ms. Paltrow, movie star and founder of GOOP, sharing a current read. Catherine Zeta Jones who often shares what she reads, posted a pic of Marilyn Monroe among books. Oprah Winfrey, media mogul, has a very popular book club to encourage reading.
