Coffee + Free Books

This has been a pretty big week for me and I’ve got a bit more good news. This time about likemind. Those of you who are signed up for the list have already seen this, but this month we’ve got a pretty awesome sponsor: Rob Walker who is promoting his new book “Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are”. As part of the promotion Random House will be paying for coffee in North America as well as giving away a bunch of copies of the book (all the North America locations will have copies while supplies last). I’m super excited because this is exactly the kind of promotion I’d wanted to do for likemind. The way I see it, everyone wins: likeminders get free coffee and an awesome book and Rob and Random House get to promote the book to its perfect audience.

As always, all you have to do is turn up. likemind is this Friday morning, all the details are at likemind.us.
