Really great read. Honest, thoughtful and humble. Written by Tony himself and not a ghost writer. His concept of delivering happiness and making that the brand of Zappos is unique and speaks to me. Yes, I'm even more addicted to shoe shopping now. Ad ...more

I like the stories Sheryl shared and kept the notion they are HER stories and not a formula or recipe for every woman. There were definite nuggets of good tips to apply in every day/my real life. As I had also multi-tasked reading her story, and watc ...more

" Hi Goodreads Authors and Bibliophiles!

I've been working with a wonderful nonprofit called Worldreader. (Hi Goodreads Authors and Bibliophiles!

I've been working with a wonderful nonprofit called
Worldreader. (www.worldreader.org). Worldreader gives kids in the developing world access to digital books. Using eReaders loaded with thousands of local and international eBooks, they provide children the books they want and need, so they can improve their lives. (Think about it, instead of the cost and effort to BUILD libraries and SHIP books kids can easily have an updated eLibrary right in their own hands!)

Worldreader currently has programs in Ghana, Kenya, and Uganda and would love to expand.

Here's where you can help. Worldreader is currently one of 25 nonprofits selected to win $1M from Chase bank. As you are all people who know the power and excitement of writing and reading, I encourage you to vote for Worldreader, encourage your network to vote, and become a champion of the organization. Yes, they do often have independent authors to add to their library! (reach out to them at info@worldreader.org)

Please vote and cross post and get the word out as far and wide as you can: http://vote4books.com/WR_Goodreads

Many of the titles on these eReaders are local African authors who truly inspire the students to read books by and for their cultures. See this video of young Ghanian student Kate is inspired to become a writer now that she has more access to books. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4I1lb...)


Please encourage your friends and community to vote. http://vote4books.com/WR_Goodreads

Since Worldreader’s model is much more efficient than getting physical books into kids hands, a win of $1M would mean we could touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of children, hire more staff, and greatly increase capacity. And when you’re talking about numbers like these, you’re not talking about change in one community or one country….you’re talking about change worldwide.


(If you are a Chase customer, you can vote twice by logging in here: https://www.chase.com/online/Special-...)

(This is NOT a request for donations just awareness and need to build community)

Thank you!
Julie
Worldreader Evangelist
