“There is no friend as loyal as a book”- Ernest Hemingway

Today is World Book Day in the UK.  No better time it would seem to reflect on the simple, immeasurable joy of reading. As Public Affairs and Public Relations professionals we are bombarded by the written word on a daily basis, political and industry tomes of all persuasions line the walls at PLMR.  Newspapers, from all corners of the nation are read and re-read.

Books and the written word shape our professional lives, but what of outside work?

Driven by a desire to find out a little more about my colleagues I asked a simple question: What are you currently reading?

The results are a heady mixture of timeless classics and intellectual firecrackers. It’s a revealing list and one I hope you enjoy perusing.

What are you currently reading? Any recommendations for our team? Let us know!

This is what the PLMR team is currently reading:
