Sharebook – Sharing Good Books with Friends and Strangers

Interested in receiving a free book recommended by myself or another person?  You can enter your information in the short form at the below link and you may be lucky enough to receive one in the future.  After reading a book I’ve purchased or otherwise received I paste the below message inside the front cover and then send out to the next person on the list, who will hopefully read it as well then add their name and pass it on.  Or, if the book isn’t their jam simply pass on without reading.

Message Inside Book Cover:

Print the below text and tape it inside the cover of a book before sending to a friend to share good books with friends.  Packing tape is recommended.

Sharebook – Pass along this book to a friend!

This book is part of Sharebook.  After you’ve read it, add your name below the others inside the front cover to join the chain of friends.  If you have a book you’d like to pass on, print this message and paste inside the book, add your name, and send to a friend to start your own chain.

Thanks for spreading the joy of reading!    www.johnpatrickanderson.com/sharebook


Today I’m sending out a copy of “the Airbnb story” by Leigh Gallagher, which Airbnb was kind enough to send me a copy of recently.  A good, quick read of the history of the company and the rapid growth from blow-up air mattresses on the floor to a $30 billion valuation in the private market.  Mostly old news if you’ve followed the company over the past few years but probably an interesting read if you’re mostly unfamiliar.

Note: My previous website (same address – johnpatrickanderson.com) had a post regarding this book sharing effort, which I nicknamed Sharebook, but has now been lost.  This post replaces the old one and will hopefully lead to more sharing of great reads.  Cheers!

Running – Best Sport Ever

I don’t get to run as much as I used to, but appreciate the opportunity when I can find time.  My favorite sport to play is basketball but there is no better sport than running.  No teammates, no equipment (other than maybe shoes and clothes), and thus no excuses.  It’s you against you, fighting fatigue, pain, and weakness.

It’s a sport where grit and determination count more than natural ability.  Everyone has a chance to be a champion when it comes to running.

Meet the new site. Same as the old site.

I’m moving this website back to the WordPress platform after a stint on the Weebly platform per the advice of persons that know much more about these things than I do.

I’ll likely lose some old content in the process and will take a few weeks to get everything pretty but hopefully it will be worth the effort in the long-term.

Have a great night and hope to see you back here soon!
