Hashtags for books

This is a great idea.

The notion of a persistent side conversation going on–one that you can participate in as you read a book–is compelling. We’re in.

Starting soon, all our books will feature a hashtag in them, making it easy to coordinate the conversation among readers. For now:

Poke The Box –>  #ptbDomino

Do the Work–>  #dtwDomino

UPDATE: Check out what Aidan built– bookhashtags

Seth Godin is the founder of The Domino Project and has written twelve books that have been translated into more than thirty languages. Every one has been a bestseller. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything.

Seems so obvious now, right?

Changing the game: Do the Work is free for now

"The next title from the Domino Project is by bestselling author Steven Pressfield. He’s the author of The Legend of Bagger Vance, the upcoming thriller The Profession, and most important, the classic The War of Art.

I don’t think a more important book on art and shipping and fear has ever been written. The War of Art changed me, probably forever, and I know it’s had that impact on hundreds of thousands of creators.

That Steve is entrusting his new manifesto Do the Work to us is thrilling. Do the Work is a logical outgrowth of the writing in The War of Art, but it’s quite clearly a manifesto, a short, powerful, memorable rant on what it means to do work that matters. This book is so important, I’d like everyone to read it again and again.

And now they can.”

Following on from the first manifesto of the Domino project being released for $1 (every time someone signed up for the project’s email list during pre-release, the price dropped incrementally all the way down to a dollar.). The second release, scheduled for 20th April is available in a digital edition is available for free download.
