  1. I'm in Phoenix, Arizona. One fun fact I like about where we live is we have a special ant that can kill you! The Maricopa Harvester Ant has the most potent insect venom in the world.ย 
  2. Hands down, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. It deals with gender, love, and the possible evolution of societies with different biologies than our own in such a unique way.ย

1. Birmingham, England. Fun fact which will apparently interest a lot of you: JRR Tolkien wrote and based the scenery of Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit in and on Birmingham. For example the two towers are based on Perrottโ€™s Folly and Edgbaston Waterworks. Here's a link for more: https://secretbirmingham.com/tolkien-tour/. He had such an imagination ahah!

2. I too am a fantasy nut - apparently Wrike attracts a type - (currently working my way through Discworld which I'm loving but) my favourite book is The Wise Man's Fear the second book in The Kingkiller Chronicles trilogy (we're still waiting on book 3ย ๐Ÿ˜ž). The series is amazing, mysterious and full of rich lore (you learn about most of the world's histories in the form of stories told around campfires and in taverns). The series does fall into some fantasy tropes but I like that sometimes, the second book focusing more on travel and the cultures of the world rather than the development of main character (which is the main focus of the first in my opinion). I really recommend reading them but you're probably in for a long wait before book 3 is released... It's been 10 years already.

3. Since 2017 (trials and small scale roll out) and then 2019 was integration with the larger company account (I think).

On a side note

Carolanne Makย I've just ordered From the Dust Returned (what do you mean by a great fall read?)

and Elizabeth Kennedy Bayerย I've bought The Left Hand of Darkness

for my own education.

George Fiveashย The story revolves around a family that's reminiscent of the Addams Family, so it's got some spooky/Halloween/autumn atmosphere. (PS, I really enjoyed The Name of the Wind, but I haven't rushed to start WMF, because I know we don't have an end yet...)

Elizabeth Kennedy Bayerย I also have The Left Hand of Darkness, but haven't read it yet - I should really make that a priority. I remember liking Gifts though.

Carolanne Makย Aaaaccccceptable, although you definitely should start WMF (it will come... someday) and The Slow Regard of Silent Things is also very good but a very weird book - to my memory there is no dialogue in it at all.

Ahh yes... fall - autumn over the pond!

Hi, I'm located in Oxford, UK where some of the Harry Potter films were filmed. My favourite book is Alamut by Vladimir Bartol because it's written by a Slovenian author with lots of plot twists and I have been using Wrike for 7 months.

Hello from sunny Staffordshire, UK! I'm based near Uttoxeter, a tiny town that's home to the worldwide company JCB.ย 

Like lots of others I have a few favourite books, but I very much enjoy the 'His Dark Materials' trilogy by Philip Pullman.ย 

I've been using Wrike for about 16 months now and have become the go-to person in our company for it, for my sins!

Hello Community!

1. I'm from the West side of Michigan. We are known for the shoreline along Lake Michigan resembles an ocean shore more than it does the shores of most lakes. The prevailing winds from the west have transformed Michigan's west coast intoย hundreds of miles of sandy beaches and dunes! Fun to visit!

2. I love Danielle Steel (Prodigal Son - my fave!) and John Grisham (A time to kill - my fave!) books.

3.) Using Wrike since 2016. And I've been to I've been to Chicago and Nashville conferences and last year's virtual conference. Can't wait for this year's!

  1. Where you're located and a random fact about that place ๐ŸŒŽย  Indianapolis, Indiana... the racing capitol of the world!ย  However, transportation options other than the auto and limited air travel are slim in Indiana.
  2. What is your favorite book and why? ๐Ÿ“šย  I don't read novels but when I want to relax my favorite movie is "Contact" because it's a fascinating tale with a great balance between faith and technology.

I'm from Keene, NH. Fun fact: Robin Williams' film, Jumanji, was filmed here.

Favorite book... hard to say... there are so many I really like... I think my favorite is still to be discovered. I'd say right now the top of the list is 11.22.63 by Stephen King. If you haven't read it, I highly suggest it. Don't bother watching the mini series though.

I have been using Wrike since the beginning of 2015. I'm it's biggest cheerleader in my company.

Hi there!ย  I'm in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (just outside of Jacksonville, FL - hi, Pam Martin!).ย  The male flag bearer for the USA at the Olympics this year was a player for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (our minor league baseball team).ย  Fun!

Hard to pick a favorite book, but maybe The Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway) or Island of the Blue Dolphins (O'Dell) - read them both as a kid, and have re-read them several times.ย  Generally speaking, I'm not one to read a book more than once, so that's got to be a testament to how much I enjoyed those two.

Been using Wrike since 2016, I think.ย  Time flies!

1.) I live in San Diego, CA where the most avocados in the US are grown.

2.) I am constantly reading, all types of genres and struggle with one favorite. Over the last few years, I've read The Alice Network several times. It's historical fiction that weaves a fictional story post-WWII into the history of female spy networks in WWI.ย 

3.) I began using Wrike in March 2020

So nice to meet everyone! I am located in sunny Los Angeles California. Not everyone knows this, but LA is home to the world famous La Brea tar pits. In 2006, a new tar pit was discovered. It contained the remains of saber-toothed cats, giant sloths, American lions, and a mammoth that was later named Zed.

My favorite recent read was The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, a tale of twin sisters that separate and go on to lead very different lives.

I've been using wrike for about two years!

Hello!

  1. I'm from Leamington Spa, England. There is a path (called the Elephant Wash) leading to the River Leam which was used by circus people to wash their animals, including Elephants.
  2. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien (first read it as a child and it's a go to for that nostalgia hit when I need it!)
  3. In earnest since August 2020, but I'd been testing it for around a year before thenย ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. I work in Portland, Maine.
    Fun fact: Portland, Maine is the namesake for Portland, Oregon (bonus fact: this is the result of a coin toss โ€” the other option was Boston). However, when I tell someone I'm from Portland, they always think Oregon first.
  2. Currently, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This gripping sci-fi story is told through security logs (text, audio, and video), chats, emails, and memos; the print book is a work of art in how the text is displayed on certain pages; the audiobook is a thrilling full-cast recording; the stakes are high and the payoff is satisfying; the whole series is truly stellar.
  3. I started using Wrike in mid-2017, so 4 years.
