For the fifth year in a row, I’ve asked clients, colleagues, and leaders from The Making Magnificence Project® for their most-loved book of the year.
A number of people submitted two titles.
One person shared seven.
Another sent the favorite of their 5-year-old.
Below is the list that came back, in no particular order.
Happy reading and gifting!
