Giveaway: Seth Godin’s Linchpin

I do most of my reading before bed. It helps me to stop thinking about things I should have done today or need to do tomorrow. Linchpin makes me think too much about not only what I should do tomorrow, but whether I’m thinking about the things I should be thinking about. In other words, not good bedtime reading. However, it is good enough that I'm willing to carry it around with me so I can read it during the day (I rarely do this with books any more--I usually have an ebook or two on hand for daytime reading).

I received my first copy Linchpin for “free” for donating to the Acumen Fund. To my surprise, I received a second copy of Linchpin. As one Squidoo reviewer said
How perfectly Seth Godin that he sent a 2nd copy for free as an unexpected gift, trusting his audience to know how to market and distribute his book.
So, I now have an extra copy of Linchpin that I’d like to give away. If you’d like a chance to win it, just leave a comment (make sure you leave an email address so I can notify you if you win).

Edited to add: DEADLINE for entries is 10 p.m. central time on Wednesday, Feb. 24.(Ha! Can you tell this is my first giveaway? I don't know what I'm doing.)


  1. I've been reading Seth's blog for a while and I look forward to reading his posts (it's true he gives us a lot to think about). I found his way of launching Linchpin to be fresh, innovative and showed regard for his readers. But this is the first time I read he sent a second copy for free... Now I'm just blown away! Thank you for posting it on your blog :) and I would like to be entered in your first contest. My email is
