Can you recommend any books?
After being asked this question a thousand times, I put together a regular email of book suggestions for anyone that wants them. If you sign up you’ll get about one email per month with at least 5 solid books to choose from.
Because of what I do for a living (researching and working for bestselling authors, marketing at an innovative fashion company and advising a handful of multi-platinum musicians), I’m always stumbling on interesting books I am in a unique position to share. This has meant everything from books 80 years of prints, review galley’s of future bestsellers, the Classics, and more. I have an archive of the emails going back 2 years and of course there is my Reading List of Books to Base Your Life On.
My goal with this newsletter is to recommend things that stick with you after you’ve put them down—or better yet, draw you down into the same rabbit hole that I was when I found it. Each book has a few sentence review, connections to similar or related books and a thought or two on why I feel the book is important. I also try to put a few questions at the bottom to tie all the suggestions together. This all comes from my personal email address so anyone is free to respond directly just by hitting reply and I’ll get back you.
If this is something you’re interested in, you can sign up in two ways. You can send me an email at [ryan.holiday (at) gmail.com] with the subject line “Reading Newsletter” or you can use the form below:
