Do a friend a favor and recommend a great book to them.
My pal Chris Widener called last week to tell me I ought to read Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. He gave me a synopsis of why he loved it and although I’m very picky about what I read, I took his advice and got a copy. I’m already half-way through and loving it.
I don’t read much nonfiction, but when I find something I really like, I pass it on. I sent my friend Larry Winget my copy of Lush Life by Richard Price because I found it a very interesting, quirky crime novel set in NYC. Larry is particular like me so we share good titles when we find them.
Don’t recommend everything you read, but do recommend the really, really good stuff.
