Ever wonder what TED staffers read when we’re not watching talks? Well, wonder no more; we’re here to tell you. We’re closing up shop next week for some R&R before 2014, but before we set off, here are the books we’ll be reading in a cozy corner of the house while we’re away: 

  • Ahab’s Wife: Or, The Stargazer by Sena Jeter Naslund (Amanda, keeper of TEDx wisdom)
  • AOL.com by Kara Swisher (Becky, TED online detective)
  • Swann’s Way by Marcel Proust (Hailey, TEDx editorial robot)
  • A Prayer Journal by Flannery O’Connor (Michelle, book editor extraordinaire)
  • Blasphemy by Sherman Alexie (Nadia, editorial wizardess)
  • The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker (Rachel, TEDx application wrangler)
  • How Music Works by David Byrne (Saba, TEDx office master)
  • The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg (Tahlia, master of friendship & YouTube)
  • My Struggle (vol. 2) by Karl Ove Knausgaard (Thu, TED prosateur)

So, there’s our picks. But you don’t have to take my word for it…
