Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Education is one of our core values, and as such, reading is something that everyone at Social Media Servants has a natural interest in. Whether it is fiction, non-fiction, or comic books, we love to keep our minds working and learn from everything we can get our hands on.

Here is a list of our favourite books that we’ve read in 2014 (it was difficult to choose!) and why we think they’re worth recommending.

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

A super romancey novel, set in Russia during the Second World War. It’s part of a trilogy so I got very involved! Also, it’s coming to the big screen in 2015!

Why Mindfulness is Better than Chocolate by David Michie

This is a great introduction to mindfulness and meditation. It’s easy to read while also being very informative. It’s really helped to make me feel much calmer, and consequently, to eat less chocolate!

Lean In: Women, Work, And The Will To Lead by Sheryl Sanberg

The best book I read this year was Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook. Recommended to me by Elana, the book provides an inspirational look at modern day women in leadership positions and aims to empower women in all industries and occupations to achieve their full potential. There is a lot within Sandberg’s story that myself and many others, both male and female, could learn a lot from.

Lean In: Women, Work, And The Will To Lead by Sheryl Sanberg

Insight from one of the heads of the most successful companies in the world. Great for anyone (not only females) wanting to learn more about themselves, to find motivation and to enjoy a different view on work and life. Also a great tool for managers to use for looking at the workplace in a different way.

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

A great read for history buffs, and anyone wanting to escape from the everyday!

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz

I think the principles in this book are a simple guarantee to living a happy life.
