As a new book blogger, I’m constantly looking for other bloggers to follow so that I can learn a little more about this blogging world. That’s why when I stumbled across the Book Blogger Hop, I knew I had to participate!
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Crazy-For-Books and is currently being hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a new question is posted for book bloggers to answer in the coming week. The purpose of the hop is connection and community. You can discover new blogs to follow, new books to read, and you may end up with some new followers, as well! Can you see why I figured it was right up my alley?
Now for this week’s question:
I have questions about this question. What would this “book lunch” consist of? Is it a lunch where you get to read books? Are you discussing a group book at this lunch, like a work book club? Would this be like an adult book fair where you spend your lunch hour browsing and purchasing books? And, perhaps most importantly, is this a free lunch? Cause this girl will go to a lot of functions for free food.
Let’s assume this is just a lunch where you read books. I legit already do this every single work day, so it probably wouldn’t affect my morale all that much! Actually, a lot of people where I work spend their lunches reading and, honestly, it’s so refreshing. Why? Because only other bookish people understand that, when someone is reading, they typically don’t want to have a conversation about your poodle’s hangnail, KAREN. Just let me have this hour of quiet reading, thank you.
Now I think the other possibilities (i.e. a work book club, a book fair) have the potential to improve morale, but only if the employees enjoy reading. Different people get enjoyment from different things, after all. What if only 1% of your employees even likes books? Having a book fair would probably seem like a huge waste of time to everyone else. They might even resent it. I guess if it was only once a month and there were similar events catering to other interests, it could be a good morale boost.
What do you think? Would having a “book lunch” at your workplace improve your morale? Let me know in the comments!
And happy reading!
