Goodreads is a Great Resource for Book Lovers

In case you missed my emails last week, Ted Prodromou and I are launching the Mastermind Book Club in a few days (stay tuned for details)…

…so I have books on my mind.

One of my favorite resources for book lovers: Goodreads

It’s a review site / online community for book lovers. With 125 million users, Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers.

When you first log in (it’s free), you rate 20 books you’ve read. Then the site generates customized recommendations for you.

A great resource for finding books you’ll like!

Today (March 14) is Danny Meyer’s birthday.

He’s the restaurateur who started Shake Shack after building an empire of high-end restaurants in New York.

No matter what kind of business you run, you’ll learn something in this book about how to delight customers and keep them coming back. 

Words to Ponder
