It’s official – it’s nearly summer time (to be honest, when isn’t it in California!?) and as ever, the Tapstone Team is one step ahead… So when you’re ready for a break from your day job, the Tapstone team’s reading recommendations for your summer vacation, are here to help get your reading list in order.
At Tapstone, we believe that we should never stop learning and inspiring ourselves – so the team has an in-office library, fully stocked with the latest books from the brightest and the best of the business and digital worlds , and of course, there’s always room for some pure, fiction fun too.
Today’s top book recommendation is bought to you by Parker Sweet, Tapstone’s Senior Media Buyer, and is most definitely on the ‘fun’ list:
What’s the last book you read and why?
Storm Front by Jim Butcher. A friend recommended it to me.
What was your key takeaway from the book?
Even wizards have trouble in life. Just, bigger and more explosive trouble.
Who would you recommend this book for?
Anyone who wants a little magic in their detective stories, with a tolerance for some horror.
How many stars would you give it on a scale of 1-5, (1 = poor and 5 = best thing ever)?
3.77 (Parker is a very precise kind of guy!)
