Book Lovers Day: What's Your Favorite Book?
In honor of Book Lovers Day last Thursday (August 8), I asked each Lawliner to write down their favorite book and give one reason why they loved it. With a company as diverse as Lawline you'd be right to think our choice of books would be just as varying. Choices ranged from childhood books to historical non-fiction, each holding a special place.
- Brandon picked George Orwell's 1984. Lessons in this book show such a forward thinking of society and it can serve as a great example of self-reflection.
- Sal chose, Corduroy by Don Freeman because of the nostalgia it evokes from his childhood. Some books you can just never let go of, especially one about an adorable teddy bear.
- The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger was naturally a popular choice. Casey loved it because regardless of who you are or what age, everyone can relate to Holden's complex character.
- If you're in need of a good laugh, pick up Sigalle's favorite The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. There's nothing like laughing out loud, it's infectious.
Other choices included: The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Tuesday's With Morrie by Mitch Albom, Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer and many others.
At Lawline, we're all about furthering education in any way possible and reading is one of the easiest ways to do so. It's key to embodying one of our very important core values, actively learning.
