Need a good book for the flight to High Point? We have recommendations


For those of you flying to High Point this week, there’s nothing like a good book to while away the hours in the airport or on the plane. Need a few suggestions? Your fellow bookworms shared what is on their nightstand right now:

 

“Ha! Don’t laugh, but… we have a new Bengal kitty in our family, so I am reading The Trainable Cat and am teaching my sweet Prada to fetch, come and sit!” Shayla Copas, Interior Designer

 

“Well…one book is political and probably best to leave that one aside.  The other book I’m reading and truly enjoying is Mel Brooks’ All About Me which I highly recommend for those who love the comedy of Mel and Carl Reiner.  Rick Spicer, vice president of sales & marketing, Pacific Coast Lighting

 

Crescent City by Sarah J. Maas  David Lee, Director of Business Development, Crestview Collection

 

Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before? by Dr. Julie Smith Kip Holt, sales manager, Villa & House

 

Blue Ocean Strategies by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne, professors at INSEAD; Mental Toughness for Young Athletes by Moses Horne and Troy Horne  Veronica Schnitzius, president, American Leather

 

The Accidental Creative: How to be Brilliant at a Moment’s Notice by Todd Henry  Taylar Hoffman, Director of merchandising, American Leather

 

“I’m currently reading a book called Different: Escaping the Competitive Herd, by Harvard professor Youngme Moon. It’s on the older side for a nonfiction book, from 2011, but the examples are still so relevant today. It’s a great read for brand executives looking to create differentiation and unequivocal brand identity for their brand to stand out in a crowded space.”  DeAnna Hain, executive director of marketing, York Wallcoverings

 

Just finished Portrait of an Unknown Woman by Daniel Silva … he is always a great read.”  Greg Jordt, executive vice president, sales & marketing, Harounian Rugs International

 

“I’m paying my annual homage of re-reading DV, the biography of Diana Vreeland, while incrementally cooking my way through Dessert Person by Claire Saffitz.  Lance Trachier, creative director of Jaipur Living

 

Current books for inspiration: LIAIGRE Creation, Brunelleschi’s Dome by Ross King  Laurie Acree, director of design and visual merchandising, Wildwood

 

We are huge fans of Home Accents Today, so that is always on our list!  We also have a penchant for bundles of vintage books — which we have begun to curate and offer for sale on reginaandrew.com)!  Carla Regina, CCO, Regina Andrew Detroit

 

A four-book series by Lance Carney. It’s written about Long Beach — now called Oak Island, N.C., where I grew up going as a kid. Fun to read about places I know.   Cameron Capel, president sales & marketing, Capel Rugs

 

I am currently reading A Peoples History of the United States by Howard Zinn   Sarah Poulios, vice president of merchandising / Buying, Lulu and Georgia

 

‘‘I’m actually re-reading books right now. For whatever reason, getting invested in a new story feels like too much work. I just read Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. It’s a beautiful story about India and makes me think I need to get overseas again sooner than later.”  Adam Dunn, vice president of design, Four Hands

 

“I am just about to start a book called Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus. A friend recommended it.  Robin Gordon, vice president of marketing, Elk Home

 

I’m current reading Capital and Ideology by Thomas Piketty.  Emma Lowry, vice president of product development, Elk Home

 

I always have two books going at once. [Right now, it’s] Mecca: A Novel by Susan Straight and A Visible Man by Edward Enninful.       Cecil Adams, creative director, Curry & Company
