Can you tell anything about a person by what books they have on their bookshelf? Now, I will grant you that some people don’t have physical bookshelves any more. I have one foot in each camp. I love my kindle app, have about 90 books on it, and use it all the time. I also have a number of books on my physical bookshelf at home and at work. Being an Agile bigot,most of my books center in someway around Agile, Scrum, and Lean thinking. I try to keep a couple copies of my favorites when someone comes asking “What about…..”
Here’s an idea. Walk around your office, take a picture of their bookshelf, and upload a pic of the bookshelf, and leave a comment on whether you think the books on the bookshelf says anything about the owner.
Thanks for coming in today.
