I am on airplanes quite often, so I probably have more time to read business books than you do. In January of 2009, I posted my recommended reading list for the year and described how I read business books. If you haven’t read those books and a topic interests you, the books on my list are still worth reading.
During 2009, I bought a Kindle so I could have books to read while traveling with a lighter briefcase. Sandra Fava, a New Jersey Family Law lawyer has a Kindle and she asked me what books I have on my Kindle. Sandra is a frequent blogger on her firm’s New Jersey Family Law Blog. Sandra also has a New Jersey Divorce Law page on Facebook where she talks about important marriage and family law topics.
I shared with Sandra my list of 12 favorites and I thought I would share the list with all of you. As you will see, lately I have been reading about word of mouth marketing using social media.
