Power of reading is immense.

Reading books provides a range of benefits that we are not always aware of.

Whether the book you are reading is a novel or a self-improvement book, reading can provide growth in many ways.

You can meet some of the Eton Digital employees who make our company a special place to work in through the books that inspire them.

Maybe you’ll also find something interesting to read.. :)

book inspiring our employees

Position: QA Engineer

What do I really do at Eton Digital:

Create fictional users for testing web functionalities.

Book: Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

It’s no surprise that I’m a passionate crime novel fan. Looking for clues, dysfunctions and bugs is something that merged my profession as a criminalist with QA. Sherlock’s adventure is a classic that reminds me of how splendid the job of a forensic can be no matter the era.

Position: Front-end developer

What I really do at Eton Digital:

Always on a hunt for more front – end challenges that will make your app even better looking.

Book: Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond

I’m a history teacher by the profession and obviously I cherish complex stories that tell about people’s undefined actions through the time.

In a nutshell, Diamond is trying to explain why Eurasian and North African civilizations have survived and conquered others while arguing against the idea that Eurasian hegemony is due to any form of Eurasian intellectual, moral, or inherent genetic superiority.

Book: I Hate the Internet by Jarett Kobek

Real – world people and events, the storyline that testifies about the digital world we live in. It is great that we can have such an overview of the other side of being online. I would recommend this book to anyone. P.S. Actually, this book is not for Internet haters.

Position: Digital Media Manager & Copywriter

What I really do at Eton Digital:

Make magic out of simple words.

Book: Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

Dandelion wine is a book that reminds us of how words, when used properly and accordingly, can invoke others senses, direct your imagination and provoke a sense of reality. It starts as a simple story told by a teenage boy. However, the narration is complex, the dialogues are not predictive, pictures are invigorating, and the story unfolds in the most beautiful, provocative, and scary way. Would recommend it always.

Team emotional guidance.

Book: Lord of the Rings, by Tolkien

Not a single epic fantasy book can be compared with this Tolkien’s masterpiece. For those who have already watched the movie trilogy, please do read the books and get an even better insight in scariness and enjoyment that Middle Earth brings.

Dušan Stojanović

Position: Front End Developer

What I really do at Eton Digital

Gives an artistic touch to anything web-related.

Book: The Island of the Day Before Novel by Umberto Eco

Eco’s imagination is surreal, and his narration is moving and full of astonishing events that one can’t expect while reading. This book is one of those that keeps you awake.

Always hand draw something.

Book: The Stranger by Albert Camus

Eventhough I read it a long time ago I can still feel the impression that book left me with. It is a type of book, a classic that everyone should read once in a lifetime. Camus offered us a timeless piece that shows all the notoriety of life.

Book: The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

This tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion will reaffirm any reader’s belief about how love can be powerful. It is a story that will teach you how to listen to your heart. A story that will touch the very depths of your soul and heart. A tear here or there is included. 

Stefan Obradović

Position: UI/UX Designer

What I really do in Eton Digital 

Making shapes and lines tell stories.

Book: The Book of Five Rings – Miyamoto Musashi

Miyamoto Musashi was a Japanese swordsman, philosopher, strategist, and ronin. The book is a collection of his personal thoughts written down over his life. It’s basically philosophy told through the art of combat.

The logic that Musashi applied to teach combat skills can be applied to modern-day life and business, which is what makes the book a good philosophical piece. I have read the book several times in the span of more than 10 years and each time the words on the page had a different meaning to me.

My favorite quote from the book: “ There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself ”

Maja Kostić

Position: QA and Office Manager

What I really do at Eton Digital:

Making that office engine run smoothly.

Book: Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts–Becoming the Person You Want to Be By Mark Reiter and Marshall Goldsmith

This book is for everyone who had recently start its own startup, company or it has become a manager or a leader in some way. This can be a useful guide if you want to learn and adapt helpful communication tools.

To wrap up,

Reading is knowledge, as well as inspiration that stimulates creativity and books give you the tools to cope with life better and easier.
