🥳 TGIF: What’s your quarantine book recommendation?

Happy Friday everybody! :wave:t4: I hope you are keeping well!

Yesterday was International Book Day :closed_book: so we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s TGIF post to books and reading habits! :tada:

Are you already an avid reader, or are you leveraging the current quarantine to make it a habit?
I personally read a lot and this week, I’ve decided to re-enjoy the adventures of THE most brilliant detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes! :male_detective:t5: :female_detective: Let’s see if you’re good detectives yourself, can you guess what I am using as a bookmark? :mag_right:

What about you? Do you have a favorite book you’d like to recommend to our Community? Are you more into paper books or have you shifted to e-books and audiobooks?

We can’t wait to read your comments and recommendations! :hugs:


If now isn’t the time for escapist entertainment, I’m not sure when would be!

In that vein, I’m reading “Batman: White Night” by Sean Murphy.


Pre-quarantine one of my new year’s resolutions was to read more so I joined a 2020 reading challenge. Quarantine has helped me make progress on my list, although I have to say back in January I obviously didn’t think we’d be in our current situation given the number of dark and depressing books I chose :grimacing:.

I recently started the popular Louise Penny series and am enjoying the first book so far.


A book I recommend to everyone is Lexicon by Max Barry. I don’t typically read a lot of sci-fi but this book is one of my all-time favorites!


For true outer-world escapism, go for Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky, true mind-bending stuff ! :wink:


I am reading Atomic Habit by James Clear. Quarantine is a good time to build habit as our schedule is more predictable

I am also reading Obstacle is The Way by Ryan Holiday. That book gives me an injection of positivity on the right dose


Actually finished this before Quarantine but ‘Shoe Dog’ by Phil Knight has to be my favorite book of all time.

Great story of a now famous founder, that shows everybody struggled at some point.

Pro tip: The audio book version is incredible to pair with your reading as well!


I’m reading the Harry Potter series for the (brace yourself) first time. AMAZING.


I’ve read Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder very timely with the whole issue of pandemics.

Currently reading Passionate Nomad: The Life of Freya Stark, it is very entertaining and provides good insight into the life of traveler, explorer, Arabist and writer Freya Stark. A good reminder that despite all the hardships, it is possible to have an astonishing career.


Highly recommend The Book of Joy and The Secret!

Well played @Dana_Bell :clap:t3:

Have you finished the Sherlock Holmes stories? I’m sad to admit I’ve never read them. Will add them to my Audible list - I’ll bet hearing them read by someone with a British accent will add to their charm…

I’ve never read them either :see_no_evil: but I believe Natalia finished it! And :100: agreed about the british accent!

Oh! Sorry - now I see it was Natalya’s post! :roll_eyes: :crazy_face:
