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!
