I heart books. I'm drawn to bookstores, new and used. I've used antique books to decorate my office. My living room at home has a large bookshelf as a centerpiece with books filling it. I've been reading since I was two and have the glasses to prove it. My entire life has revolved around good books.
Last week on Twitter I asked for recommendations on books people have read about marketing, entrepreneurialism and social media. I received a plethora of responses and put an order in to Amazon.com for the top six. Since I'm all about sharing information, I've put together that list here. I plan to read each book and review it. I'd love to hear what you think about each of them. Huge thanks to @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @ @
