When was the last time you sat down and read? 

No, scrolling through Twitter or browsing an article on your phone doesn’t count. We’re talking about reading the old fashioned way – no screens, no emails, and no character limits – just you and a good book. If it’s been months since you last read one, you are definitely not alone.

Reading is on the decline in America, driven — at least in part — by the fact that people are spending more of their free time streaming TV, playing video games, or using their phones than ever before.

Regularly reading books helps reduce stress and muscle tension, enhances sleep quality, and can slow cognitive decline, and we view it as an essential part of a well-balanced lifestyle. We LOVE reading here at TB12, so we sat down with a few members of our team to find out more about their favorite book recommendations:
