News & Opinion: Book Wish Foundation

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:47 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I personally think books always make the best and most thoughtful gifts. They require a good knowledge of the person you're giving them to and a reflection on what you believe they'd like to expend their precious time and intellectual capital on.
We hope you gave and received many books this holiday season, and hope you'll consider giving a dollar for each to Book Wish Foundation, whose mission is "to provide reading relief for people in crisis."
