Hey everyone ✌️ Excited to launch a side project I've been working on. 📚Good Books is a curated collection of book recommendations from some of the most successful, influential and interesting people around the world. Let me know who you'd love book recommendations from in the comments and I'll add them to the list👇 This project started about 6-months ago when I started to keep track of all the books that I wanted to read and who recommended them. I then got (a little) obsessed with the project and ended up accumulating over 15,000 book recommendations from about 1,250 people... I built Good Books to share these book recommendations with the world, organising them into simple categories and industries so it's easy to find your next read. What's next for Good Books? 📚 100s more recommendations every month 🙋‍♀️ Adding more interesting people (who would you like to see?) 📝 Writing some curated recommendation lists 📩 Planning a weekly newsletter with recommendations 🕵️‍♂️ Adding sources to book recommendations Follow me on Twitter or Dribbble for more updates and ask me anything! 🙃 Jordan

@jordan__hughes Hi Jordan, first of all kudos for your hustle, and your product looks amazing. I am documenting journey of makers, creators, entrepreneurs through out the world. The goal is to do a short interview, capture it in video, and let it out to the world, so that others can get inspiration. And also to get an acknowledgement, for you, and for your hustle. I would like to request you to email me, so that we can schedule some time, at tellmeaboutit510@gmail.com . Thanks, and good luck! Subodh

No one ever marked it down, but that doesn't stop a few of us from mourning it. Stunning site - experience is on another level to what I'm used to with GoodReads!
