If Your Favorite FRIEND is Rachel…
Read The Glass of Fashion, by Cecil BeatonThe Glass of Fashion was written by iconic photographer, Cecil Beaton. It explores the faces and models that shaped the golden age of fashion. Filled with illustrations and personal stories about Chanel, Dior and Balenciaga, this is one book that Rachel would use as motivation and inspiration.
If Your Favorite FRIEND is Joey…
Read The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P., by Adelle Waldman
Nate has it all…a rising career, his choice of beautiful women…but he’s constantly struggling with his own status anxiety and his search for what it really means to be happy. An absorbing tale of women, sex and love, this is one book that Joey (hopefully!) wouldn’t have to throw in the freezer!
If Your Favorite FRIEND is Ross…
Read Jurassic Park, by Michael CrichtonThe ultimate in dinosaur fiction, Jurassic Park is a classic that Ross would surely have on his bookshelf. Much different from the movie of the same name, the novel explores the science behind these dinosaurs…a topic Ross would probably love to discuss and argue about to anyone gullible enough to listen!
