“What’s the last book you read?”
Tech companies and large corporations are asking this question in job interviews now. It can be a key insight to your personality, and helps them decide if you’re a good fit for the team. This is also a great “break the ice” question when you meet someone new. People love to talk about the things that interest them, and it’s easy to follow up with questions about the topic or author. This works so much better than asking what someone’s favorite book (or song, or movie) is. Nobody is one-dimensional, and choices differ based on mood.
Reading is an excellent way to kill time in a waiting room or long line. Though e-readers have transformed the way we carry our books around, some people still have stacks of physical books in strategic places around the house.
September 6 is Read a Book Day, so if you’re one of those people that always has a book handy, grab a new book lovers mug, fill it up, and find a quiet space to dive into your favorite stories.
1. Very Short Stories
Shirts, bumper stickers, and coffee mugs can be funny, but you’ll get more laughs from books.
2. Mining the Card Catalog
It’s always fun to turn a friend on to a new author. Librarians can make recommendations, too.
3. Stay Focused
Every reader knows the shock of a book falling onto your face because you drifted off while reading.
Strategically stocking the shelves behind you will make you look good on your next video call.
Is there any other skill as useful as reading? You can learn about any topic, win any argument, change professions, develop new hobbies, and so much more.
These are just a few of the book lovers mugs we have available. These make great gifts for the readers on your list. Have a different interest? Do a search from our home page. And remember, U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
