What We’re Reading Wednesday: Spring Edition

It’s not enough that we work with books all day. We’re obsessed with them! Here’s a glimpse into what we’re reading now in our next edition of What We’re Reading Wednesday.

The Gunslinger – The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King

“I decided I needed to switch genres. After consulting with my “book circles” and reading reviews online, I took the plunge into the challenging and famous world created in ‘The Dark Tower’ series.” — Ross

Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance

“It’s better than I expected. Like a call to action to today’s tech inventors to create a better world rather than using their genius to poke someone with 140 characters or less.” — Glen

The Riyria Chronicles by Michael J. Sullivan

“As an avid fantasy reader, I wish I would have given this series a chance when I first downloaded the book over a year ago. It came up as a suggestion based on my two favorite series, The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson, and The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss.  Not knowing who Michael J. Sullivan was, I was hesitant to dedicate the hours required to get into a new fantasy series, but within the first few chapters of the first book I was hooked. I have now finished the first two books in the series and am looking forward to reading all six. The series is broken into two parts, The Riyria Chronicles and The Riyria Revelations. Each series consists of three books. If you choose to listen to the series as I did, you won’t be disappointed in the voice acting. I would suggest this series to anyone, fantasy fan or not.” — Jon

Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

“After seeing Hidden Figures for Oscar season this year, I had to pick up the original text. Hidden Figures tells the story of women who fought for education, jobs, and careers in the segregated South. They left families behind for better opportunities at Langley, but still did not get equal pay or treatment once there. Learning about the struggles and accomplishments of these women has been truly inspiring.” — Katy
