The 6 Books That Every Office Should Have

By maintaining and enhancing your most valuable asset, you and your coworkers, you are sharpening the saw. Finding harmony on all levels—mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually—is the goal.

Today's employers are aware of this, which is why they spend money on employee benefit programs like mindfulness training, after-school activities, nutritious office snacks, unrestricted vacation policies, and more.

But what if we go back to the fundamentals? The use of office libraries is a terrific method to motivate workers to take a break from their smartphones and laptops while also learning something new.

Check out these books if you wish to build a library at your place of business:

1. Fiction: The One Woman By Laura May

When calamity strikes, Julie will have to choose between remaining true to Mark and loving Ann. Can long distance real love endure? Read in Laura May's book.

2. Non-Fiction: The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz

One of Silicon Valley's most renowned businessmen is Ben Horowitz. Horowitz lifts the lid on what it really takes to steer a great company through difficult times in The Hard Thing About Hard Things. Horowitz's book offers crucial counsel for every corporate executive, presented in his straightforward writing style with a few nods to his rap fandom. It's a must-read for both newcomers and seasoned readers, and it's especially beneficial for people adjusting to difficult circumstances with difficult barriers.

3. Fiction: An Island by Karen Jennings

This book is a perfect thought-provoking read to add to the office library. Samuel is introduced in the first chapter of the book as the island's lone resident and lighthouse keeper. An unexpected guest, a man who washes ashore, breaks up his seclusion. Samuel is prompted by the abrupt appearance of this stranger to think back on his life and the circumstances that brought him to the island. The amazing thing about this book is how broad it is despite how short it is; Samuel's life serves as the starting point for a thorough investigation into postcolonial African politics, xenophobia, family and its conflicts, and, unavoidably, the nature and meaning of love. Jennings' flawless mastery of her art is what makes everything come together. The subsequent refined narrative piece is the ideal balancing act. The contrasts in this book are subtle and strong, sparse and expansive, and narrow.

4. Non-Fiction: Start with Why by Simon Sinek

This is a perfect book to unwind after a difficult work day. Bran grew up in a non-traditional family in Southern California. She is raised by her "common-law stepfather" on Bourdon Farms, a plant nursery that serves as a front for a biker gang, after her mother moves into a Buddhist colony.
