Revisit "The Office" with these reads!

a collage of books related to the TV show "The Office"

June 8, 2020

It's the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Let's pull back the curtain and take a behind-the-scenes look at one of the best shows (objectively, definitely)...The Office!

In the new book The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s, author Andy Greene chronicles how The Office got off the ground and shares tales from the show, as told by the creators, writers and actors who worked on the program.

Many of the actors from the series also wrote and/or directed episodes of the show including but not limited to, Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, and B.J. Novak. A few of the actors have also written clever and comedic books, which I think are worth reading, especially if you were a fan of their work on the show. 

While many of us are still spending lots of time at home, binge watching shows that make you laugh, like The Office, can be really good for your mind and spirit. And some of these books are sure to bust out in a full belly laugh or maybe even cackle, too!
