The Circle

My book club read The Circle last month, but I couldn’t make it. To be honest, this book freaked me out a little bit.. mostly because I could see it being real. It also made me really think about how much and how often I’m sharing on social media. The main character gets her dream job at a company (that bears a striking resemblance to Google or Apple) and madness ensues. She finds herself going from someone who doesn’t feel comfortable sharing her life online to sharing everything… eventually isolating her family, friends, even some of her coworkers. I found it fascinating. If you work in social media (or for a tech company, it’s a must-read.
