If you’re like me, you love to lose yourself in a good story. Whether they’re long or short, impactful books have a profound way of reaching readers on a deeply personal level. Inspiring the reader to escape into her own imagination, compelling stories bring much needed pauses in otherwise hectic lives – something we all appreciate.
The personal gratification we experience from a good book applies to most any genre or style of novel: Self-help books, poetry anthologies, historical epics, and professional development books are all fair game. In honor of #BookLoversDay, we’re focussing on some inspirational reads for those folks working in the contact center world. To avoid bombarding you with a dozen or so to chose from, we decided to focus on three solid reads.
