Back in September, Mike shared his digital reading list – newspapers, websites, newsletters and blogs that he loved. We’ve also given you lists of bloggers, Twitterers – even conferences that we think are worth your eyeballs.
But now we’re going to go back. Way back. All the way back to… Paper. That’s right. Just in time for holiday gift-buying and wish-list-making, here is the first annual
Pixels and Pills Reading List
Some are best-sellers – some are friends of the blog – some are both! But they’re all essentials for getting a great grasp of social media. We’d give you synopses… but conveniently, every single one has a subtitle that does it for us.
- Trust Agents: Using the Web to Build Influence, Improve Reputation, and Earn Trust – Chris Brogan and Julien Smith
- Worldwide Rave: Creating Triggers That Get Millions of People to Spread Your Ideas and Share Your Stories – David Meerman Scott
- Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time – Joel Comm
- Inbound Marketing: Get Found Using Google, Social Media, and Blogs – Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah
- 140 Characters: A Style Guide for the Short Form – Dom Sagolla
- Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies – Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff
- Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations – Clay Shirky
How cool is it that social media allows you to see your favorite authors up close? Not only can you buy their books, you can learn from them in real time, too.
But now, we at P&P are excited to announce our first contest! Thanks to our friends at Wiley Publishing, we’re giving away copies of the first five books on this list. Weve got 25 copies of each book to give away so there are plenty of chances to win.
All you have to do to win is tweet the link to this post – either your own, or RT ours, just make sure you include the hashtag #PNPSM in your tweet. We’ll select winners at random, so the more times you tweet, the more chances you have to win!
We’ll announce winners by Monday, December 21st. Good luck, and get tweeting (and reading)!
