What Did You Read in 2012? Read A New Book – Part 2

Here is our Part 2 of the Read a New Book in December post. Read Part 1, where the other half of the MJ2 Marketing team provided their selections.
Ashley Fithen – Creative Designer
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It is the story of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley and their adventures in Paris during the 1920’s. However, I am currently reading The Hobbit before the movie comes out and so far it is pretty good. I am only on Chapter 2. Next up: An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
Lisa Moore – Director, Community Management
Bossypants by Tina Fey. I have enjoyed Tina Fey since she was on SNL and am looking forward to reading more about her life. I’m expecting a lot of laughs with the right amount of snark and cynicism along the way. I had been asking for this book for a while and hadn’t received it yet. So, I bought it for myself. Merry Christmas to me!
Anna Young – Director, New Media
Being an information junkie, I suggest a book that was given to me on my birthday this year which also served as the introduction to Part One of this blog post and it is Schott’s Quintessential Miscellany (Indispensable Irreverance). The title of the book was enough to perk my interest, and the information in the book was fabulously curated. I hope to get  the companion books in this series, Schott’s Original Miscellany, and Schott’s Food and Drink Miscellany. I was quite excited to find out that the author is British too, further appealing to my Anglophile sensibilities.
This week the Wall Street Journal asked their various followers on facebook and twitter to offer up their #BestBook of 2012. Here is what the folks said were the best. And if you don’t have enough ideas, check out these lists (ahhh, yep….consider this the last MJ2 Hit List of 2012):

What was your favorite book of 2012?
