This week’s post will be a bit different from what you’re used to. As you can tell from the title, I’ll be giving away a couple books, well actually four, to as many lucky winners, so if you like to read you’ll definitely love this one. Ready? Here goes.
1st book: “Purple Cow” by Seth Godin
Written by famous author Seth Godin, this is a book I personally recommend for anyone who is into marketing, entrepreneurship or any business-related field. It contains a lot of golden nuggets that are handpicked from the stories of some of the most well-known companies. What’s more, it’s pretty easy to read; I finished it all in a single day.
2nd book: “What! and Give Up Show Business?: A View from the Hollywood Trenches” by Peter Wooley
If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes with some of your favorite actors in Hollywood productions, you’ll probably want to get your hands on this book. It’s straight from the mind of well-known production designer Peter Wooley, who has had the privilege of working with stars such as Katharine Hepburn, Robert Redford, and Robert Mitchum among others.
3rd book: “The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money” by Ron Lieber
For those of you who have kids, or plan to in the future, I would strongly recommend reading this book (even if you don’t win). This book offers an interesting take on how teaching kids to manage money actually helps them to be more considerate and smarter adults. It’s written by a personal finance columnist by the name of Ron Lieber, who is also a father, so he’s pretty much writing from experience. I must say it’s a very insightful read that you’ll appreciate.
4th book: “Your Tempting Love” by Layla Hagen
The romance-novel readers will love this one. It’s the classic storyline of the bachelor, who’s not yet ready to settle down, meeting irresistible young woman, resulting in flying sparks and then some. Part of the 9-book Bennett Family series by Layla Hagen, it works well as a standalone story, so it doesn’t mean you have to get the rest. Overall, it’s a well written and entertaining book.
So, how do you win, you might be wondering? Simply comment which book you would like to receive (below or here) if you’re among the lucky four to be picked.
