I’m starting a campaign through this blog to pass along all the books I’ve read.
Seth Godin says: “a book is a souvenir and a container and a motivator and an easily leveraged tool. Hoarding books makes them worth less, not more. An effective manager hands books to her team. Not so they can be reminded of high school, but so that next week she can say to them, “Are we there yet?”
It is in this spirit that I am emptying my bookshelves of all the novels, self-help books and biographies that have been instrumental in teaching me something of value. And the point is because I have gained that value, I can pass the book along. I don’t need to see it on my bookshelf gathering dust to be reminded of this value.
Each day I will post on this blog an entry about one of the books I am passing along, a bit like an extended review. I hope to include some tidbits about each book for you. There will be a link to my bookstore where you can purchase the book. Please pass this blog link along to your friends. I truly believe books are meant to be shared and recycled, and want to also make room for the books I’m going to buy in this next phase of my life, not to mention the ones I’m going to write and publish!
When you have finished reading books from my store, please make sure you pass them along again.
Share their value.
