Did you know that, according to Google, there were more than 129,864,880 books in existence as of 2010? With over 1 million books self-published in 2017 alone, that number is sure to be a lot higher today.

As marketers and storytellers, we greatly value good reads and even have two book clubs within our office. We know that books have the power to transport and transform us. In our increasingly hustle-based culture, books are often the best place to step back from the pace of our everyday realities to find inspiration or just a good ol’ escape.

They say that no two people ever read the same book, and that’s a pretty incredible concept. Not only do books give us the opportunity to get to know ourselves better, but they also give us the chance to get to know each other better when we talk about what we’ve read – whether that’s in a book club, in the elevator, or by the coffee machine.

So what does a digital agency read? To help you sift through the millions of books out there to choose from, we put together a list of 24 books our team is reading right now. From WWII to meditation to Silicon Valley – we’re bound to be reading about something that interests you.
