I don't know if you are familiar with The service is the brainchild of Suzanne Beecher. She came up with the idea of day delivering a five minute sample of a book to your emailbox each day. Each week they cover a new title and in five days, you manage to read two or three chapters through the emails. She has almost a dozen clubs you can join to fit your particular taste.
What made me bring up today is the busines book they are highlighting this week - When The Buck Stops With You: Harry Truman on Leadership by Alan Axelrod. We had a post about Mr. Axelrod last week.
If you are interested in trying their business book club, you can sign up here.
