At Kobo we love books and love to celebrate and share our favourite stories. 2012 was a big year with blockbuster hits like Fifty Shades of Grey and The Hunger Games sparking much conversation around the office and with our customers. Books like The Power of Habit taught us new ways to accomplish our goals, while Quiet reminded us to take pause and listen to those around us.

No matter what the book, it's the moments that bring us to tears, that put smiles on our faces, or give us an "ah ha" revelation, that make the power of books a never-ending gift. This holiday season, we wanted to share a few of our favourite moments discovered amongst the pages. Happy holidays everyone!
