Recommend This!: Delivering Digital Experiences that People Want to Share | Jason Thibeault, Kirby Wadsworth
46 posts | 1 to read
A detailed look at relationships and how to harness their power for business growth This book teaches marketers how to build successful relationships with early-stage buyers by creating trust and a sense of friendship. The first step is learning to understand buyer activity to gauge what they wantor might wantwhen they first visit an online site. Then marketers must use strategies to capture the buyers attention and build the relationship carefully, rather than aggressively trying to close a sale. Authors Jason Thibeault and Kirby Wadsworth have proven themselves as innovative thought leaders, researchers, and trustworthy guides in improving revenue streams. Their book aims to show organizations the value of relationships in a digital age and a clear method for quantifying that value. It includes specific techniques, like storytelling and personalized content, which have been proven to improve conversions and engage customers. The barriers to finding and engaging with consumers have been destroyed by the ease of clicking a mouse button or tapping on a screen. Todays technology enables competitors to emerge seemingly overnight, and the wide range of choices consumers have today means that businesses can no longer compete solely on product. Recommend This! helps organizations take advantage of the one aspect of business that hasnt changedrelationships. It teaches marketers the strategies they need to be successful in a digital world where forming, cultivating, and taking advantage of relationships can be difficult. Recommend This! teaches organizations how to measure and manage relationships while offering specific strategies to create revolutionary change. It is a must read for anyone who needs to understand how digital relationships alter the way we do business.

This time of year is the worst for my anxiety. I sort of realized I may not be helping myself with my heavy book choices. So...what are some of your favorite happier/lighter reads? I want to have a list to get me through the year. Thanks! 💕

Sharpeipup Anything by Janet Evanovich she has me laughing out loud 2mo
GypsyKat I always reread the Harry Potter series when I‘m depressed/anxious. Anne of Green Gables is also a favorite feel good read. 2mo
Sace There is something about Nancy Drew. Not fabulous writing, but I find Nancy soothing. Georgette Heyer is wonderful too. 2mo

MicheleinPhilly I just read this and it COMPLETELY lifted my mood 2mo
xicanti I highly recommend 2mo
GypsyKat I thought of another one! If you like graphic novels at all, Giant Days is really cute! 2mo
CareBear @GypsyKat I LOVE Giant Days! I‘m on vol 5 I think so that‘s a great idea, thank you ❤️ 2mo
CareBear Thanks so much, @Sharpeipup @Sace @LiteraryinLititz @MicheleinPhilly @rather_be_reading @xicanti a lot of great ideas, none of which were even on my radar! 2mo
CareBear @MicheleinPhilly this one looks particularly good! 2mo
MicheleinPhilly It was! I have been in such a funk (and also suffer with anxiety) and it was such a mood booster. 2mo
ljuliel Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher books. Both very good authors that divert your attention and help you to focus on THEIR world instead of your own. They sorta take you away for awhile. 2mo
SomedayAlmost Gay Yellen‘s “Body Next Door” for some fun, well-written, smart romantic suspense that keeps you guessing and entertains. Also, rich world-building is a respite. I‘ve always loved the Narnia series. (edited) 2mo

I‘m looking for recommendations please! I found out recently - as an almost 38 year old adult - that I have ADHD. (I feel this explains my distracted squirrel moments in life.) Does anyone have any good book recommendations on the subject? My therapist recommended one on mindfulness that I plan on reading, but I was hoping to find some others as well. Thank you!

jenniferw88 Anne Hegerty is on the Aspergers spectrum! If you have twitter I recommend you follow her as she occasionally recommends books to help - she does a lot to raise awareness as she was diagnosed later in life too! #AddictedtoTheChase 5mo
alexa_d The classic is "You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy?" which is, rather atypically of ADHD books, written by two women who actually HAVE it. Most ADHD books by women are for parents of ADHD children. It's so refreshing and more helpful to have a book from "our" perspective ? 4mo
Amandajoy @alexa_d I will add that one to my list, thank you! 3mo

*Agatha Christie Fans:

I‘m a newbie to her work.
Can you recommend any particular order to follow when I dig in? Standalones, Poirot, Miss Marple, etc.?

Thanks for your recommendations! 💕

*I‘ve read Crooked House and own (but haven‘t read yet) Murder on the Orient Express.

AsYouWish I have only read And Then There Were None, and I really liked that one. 5mo
robinb @AsYouWish Thanks! I also saw on-line where someone else recommended that one to newbies. 😊👍 5mo
Laughterhp It depends on what type of detective you want to follow. I personally like Poirot. I really like The ABC Murders but that‘s later in his life when he‘s retired. I also really liked Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. I really liked And Then There Were None, that‘s probably one of my favorites, but it doesn‘t follow a detective. 5mo
See All 27 Comments
Laughterhp And I definitely don‘t think you have to read any series in order. At least I don‘t! 5mo
Librarybelle My favorite is And Then There We‘re None...it‘s a stand-alone, and it‘s so good! Definitely thriller aspects. Murder on the Orient Express is a classic good one as well. 5mo
DeleteAcct It's safe to say all her novels are good. Of course some better than others. This site has them all in order, that's how I read them. You can download the pdf. https://www.agathachristie.com/stories If you want to start with some truly great ones: And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, The A.B.C. Murders, Murder on the Orient Express. 5mo
robinb @Laughterhp thanks so much! I know everyone has their own personal tastes...someone on-line said they found Poirot annoying. 🤣 Unfortunately I tend to be a stickler (usually) about reading a series in order (at least by character). So I may just take a character (like Poirot) and read those in order. However, I might start with the standalones first and go from there... 5mo
robinb @Librarybelle thanks Jess! Since And Then There Were None is a stand-alone, it might be one of my first to read! I know I‘m going to enjoy them all! 5mo
mrsmarch Murder on the Orient Express, And Then There Were None, Sad Cypress, Mystery of the Blue Train, They Came to Baghdad (a stand-alone)...Frankly whatever you pick up, stick with it. I‘m always a bit bored at the beginning but then I‘m engrossed and can‘t put it down. 5mo
robinb @Rachbb3 That website is wonderful, thank you! Thinking of starting with standalones, then picking a character and reading in order. 5mo
robinb @mrsmarch thank you! Great advice, will do! 😊👍 And I know what you mean about starting slower but finishing totally absorbed! 5mo
mrsmarch @robinb I happen to prefer Poirot to Marple. The one that I didn‘t like at all was Death in the Clouds. 5mo
robinb @mrsmarch 👍😊 5mo
Jaimelire Hercule Poirot is the best, but Miss Marple has her charms too. I loved “And Then There were None”. Seriously, they are all good! 5mo
mabell As you can tell, everyone has their favorites, and they can differ greatly! I HATE (is that too strong? 😆) And Then There Were None, and everyone else seems to love it. 🤷‍♀️ For stand-alones, the Secret of Chimneys and The Man in the Brown Suit are both terrific and early works. (Chimneys is actually a Superintendent Battle, a recurring character in a few). You‘ll draw your own conclusions 😄 But I know you will enjoy Dame Agatha! ⬇️ 5mo
mabell I‘m looking forward to seeing what you think! I‘m excited for you! 5mo
erzascarletbookgasm Go with Poirot if you like your detective quirky, even pompous but undeniably intelligent. My favourite featuring Poirot - The Murder Of Roger Ackyord. Miss Marple is great too. For Tommy and Tuppence, perhaps you‘ll want to start from the first book. If you wish to read stand alones, my favourites- And Then There Were None, Endless Night, Crooked House ( you‘ve read), Ordeal by Innocence. Happy discovering your favourite Christie! 5mo
Lady_Tigana_20 I started by reading a biography of her life. Then I worked my way through her Miss Marples, starting with the first one: The Murder at the Vicarage. There are 12 of those plus a book of short stories. I have only read two Poirots: Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. Plan to start Poirot after I get some of my TBR list knocked down a bit. I haven‘t been that big a mystery reader—although I love Elizabeth Peters—but I like Christie. 5mo
robinb @Jaimelire I‘m really looking forward to reading them all at some point! Thanks for your input! 5mo
robinb @mabell Thanks Elizabeth! Yes, I can tell the opinions vary, but I have a feeling I‘ll like them all (some more than others no doubt). I‘m excited too! I just wish I had started sooner! 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ 5mo
robinb @erzascarletbookgasm I think I‘ll probably enjoy all of the characters if the stories are all well written. 😊👍 Thanks so much for your recs...I‘m so excited for the discovery as well! 5mo
robinb @Lady_Tigana_20 Now that‘s a great way to start with any new author...with their biography! Sounds like you‘ve definitely got a system for working your way through...that‘s what I plan to do as well, come up with a reading plan. I haven‘t read Peters either, but I do have her first in the Peabody series. 👍 I just need more hours in the day! 😂😩 Thanks for sharing your experience with Christie! 5mo
robinb @Rachbb3 Rachel, I just printed out the 8 page list of her books/stories (thanks for the link!) and went through to mark them as Poirot, Marple, etc. That‘s a handy list to have! 👍💕 5mo
DeleteAcct You're welcome! 😊 It's handy to have. 5mo
Sarah83 As the others already said, everyone likes different books written by her. I personally like the locked in mysteries written by her. When I was younger, I only liked Miss Marple, but it turned out, that I can read Poirot today aswell. If you like Sherlock Holmes Poirot always seems like a bit of a parody of Sherlock. It's the same buddy construction as Holmes & Watson by Doyle so it's Poirot & Hastings by Christie. 5mo
robinb @Sarah83 Locked in mysteries are so cool! 👍 The truth is I haven‘t read any Sherlock either (although I do ❤️ the Elementary series on tv 🤣). Guess I‘ll need to tackle Doyle next. 😉 Looking forward to meeting all these wonderful and interesting characters! Thanks for your input! 5mo
Sarah83 You're welcome 😍 5mo

Need some help please! What are your best book recommendations for books with happy endings? Ones that don‘t have a lot of steamy sex in them. Think feel-good & bubbly. I‘m looking for my swap, and this is a genre I haven‘t read too much from in a while. Thank you!

Amandajoy @Tamra I read that one around the same time I read We Have Always Lived in the Castle & constantly get the titles mixed up. My first thought was maybe I need to be more specific about what a happy ending is! But that‘s a good suggestion. 7mo
Amandajoy @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled that‘s a good one! I forgot about it! 7mo
Tamra @Amandajoy hahahaha! 😆 Yes, I‘d there is a bit of a distinction between there two. I am NOT a saccharine or coming of age reader, but I loved Capture the Castle. I was so surprised at its charm. Same with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, though it‘s been so long that I can‘t recall the ending. I remember the lice & kerosene treatment! 7mo

Does anyone have recommendations for places to visit while we‘re hiking through Mt Zion and Bryce Canyon? I think we‘re spending one day in Bryce and two in Zion. Any good bookstores? Breweries? Restaurants?

Chrissyreadit Zion is my favorite place in this entire country. Have a great time!!! 7mo
Christine Exciting!! I second @Chrissyreadit ‘s sentiments. I have no shopping or dining recommendations, other than that national park gift shops are like my favorite stores ever, and Zion‘s is great! 🤓 7mo

eraderneely 😍😍😍 7mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I LOVED Zion!!! My friend and I drove from Vegas. It‘s a ride. You know, Mesquite , Nevada is a cool place to visit, right over border from St George, Utah. If you want to gamble. I love Casablanca hotel...stay overnight, they have a pretty pool. Keep in mind we did this back in ‘09. Not sure if things have changed. 7mo
nelehelen I love love Zion and Bryce! Enjoy!! 7mo
PerksOfBeingABookworm @bridge12 thanks for the recommendation! I was flipping through the book and CR is actually in there! Hopefully we have time to check it out. 7mo
rretzler Both are beautiful parks. We were there about 3 years ago and I can‘t remember any specific places to visit, but it is packed in the summer. I remember we tried to eat lunch in the little town near the visitors center of Zion (I think) and had to wait over an hour at a small cafe for our food and a table. Unless you plan to bring your own food, allow plenty of extra time 6mo

Trollkonstnaren Fiction or non-fiction? I read more from fiction so here we go 😊 In a deep deep woods was exciting crime/horror. And one of my current reads is John Cabbal the Necromancer (also crime/horror). I can recommend both as they have a dark tune to keep you hooked every moment. 1y
Trollkonstnaren And then there is The Baztan trilogy. It combines crime solving and mytology very intensively and gives a nice twist for traditional crime genre. 1y
ashley_o13 @Trollkonstnaren yes I love fiction! And thanks for the recommendations. Question in the deep deep woods. Did you mean in the dark dark woods by Ruth Ware or is it something different? I have that on my bookshelf and have been pushing it off because I hated the Lying Game by her lol. Baztan trilogy sounds interesting I'll check them out 😁 1y
Trollkonstnaren Yes, that one ☺️ My (translation) mistake, but great that you pointed out the right book 😊 And Baztan trilogy is great! I read them very fast because the story kept a tight hold on me. 1y
ashley_o13 @Trollkonstnaren That's fine 😁😁 and Im going to put the Baztan Triology in my cart on Amazon now for my next order 🤗 1y

Hello lovely littens, could you please help me? 😄
I am looking for recommendations... I love fantasy/YA books, but I'm getting tired of them turning into long series... Do you know of any standalones or maybe completed duologies?

I want to read more biographies this year and I‘m looking for recommendations; specifically biographies about Freddy Mercury and the Kennedys. I‘d also like to know your favorite biographies.

Tamra McCullough‘s biography on Truman is also good. But, Adams is the better. (edited) 2y
Kaye This was quite interesting. Read it many years ago, but out in Kindle now. 2y

Kaye Very well written autobiography about Ted Kennedy. I wanted to know how he got through so many tragedies in life and kept on getting out of bed every day to go to work and help others. (edited) 2y
Aloisi_tribe @Tamra John Adams is not only one of the best biographies I‘ve read, it‘s one of the best books I‘ve read period. I have a copy of Truman waiting on my TBR shelf. Thanks for the recommendations! 2y
Aloisi_tribe @Kaye I‘ll have to look for those. There are so many Kennedy books out there, I had no clue where to start. 2y
Kaye Yes, I do believe a person could spend years reading books just about the Kennedys. I liked the 2 I mentioned because I wondered how the mom and brother got through so much grief . Quite an interesting family. @Aloisi_tribe 2y
Tamra @Aloisi_tribe yes! It was the first Bio I truly enjoyed. Memorable reading experience! 2y

Calling all Sci-Fi Littens! I‘ve never read anything by Ursula K. LeGuin and obviously I need to correct that. Where should I begin?

DivineDiana Following. 📚 2y
Knightingale Probably start with Left Hand of Darkness. She had such a large body of work that it‘s hard to say which direction to go from there. 2y

Melissa_J I‘m glad you asked this question because I‘ve never read any of her work either and was just wondering where to start. 2y
Librarianaut Ditto what @ForeverNerdy said... 2y
Bibliogeekery The Dispossessed is my favourite 2y
rwmg It depends what you like. My favourite short story is "Semley's Necklace", which is also a prologue to "Rocannon's World". It's hard to beat for sheer mythic beauty. Some say "The Word for World is Forest" was the inspiration for the film Avatar. For an exploration of political ideas, I would go for "The Dispossessed", and for ideas on gender "The Left Hand of Darkness". 2y
tournevis All of the above, but also 2y

Hiya! Do can any of you recommend any adult ( no YA please. I like YA I‘m just burnt out) SFI/Fantasy that maybe have some romance and action that are newer? I was thinking this decade. I figured it‘s 2018 ( almost) and I should branch out to kick start a better reading year! Thanks!

I need your help, fellow #Littens. The last couple of books I've read have been heavy and downright depressing. Does anybody have a recommendation for a light, happy, fun, get-me-out-of-this-funk read? Fiction, non-fiction, YA, middle grade, graphic novel, whatever is fine. I just need a change of pace. Thanks!

I‘m looking for recommendations for memoirs dealing with memory loss. Alzheimer‘s disease, dementia, any variety of causes. I‘m currently writing about my grandmother who had Alzheimer‘s while dealing with memory issues of my own, and I‘ve become fascinated with the topic of how different people deal with the idea of losing part of themselves through faded memories.

Good morning, #Littens!!!

I'm putting together a TBR for October and I was wondering if anybody had any good spooky (but not too spooky -- I'm a bit of a wimp) recommendations?
I've already added Sleepy Hollow and Broken Monsters. I also love true ghost stories.

Can't wait to hear what you've got.

Littens!! I need your help. I very recently started listening to audiobooks on my commute (kinda helps to keep my hands free when I'm jammed up on strangers on the L train 😂) but I'm a total newbie. Started with Born a Crime (loved) and just finished Waking Gods. Now I'm totally lost as to what to pick next.

Can you give me some audio recommendations?!

12parsecs I'm listening to The Fifth Season right now, and I'm so glad I chose to listen instead of read! It's soooo detailed and would be quite a chunky read, but this the voices for each character it's easier to follow the story line 😜 2y
GarthRanzz Ready Player One is a great listen. If you like GoT those will take you a year to get through! 2y
UwannaPublishme I listen to mostly memoirs. If that's your thing: I'm listening to Tippi (Hedren) now and also enjoyed: 2y
See All 42 Comments
Amie When I started listening to audiobooks I found nonfiction to be the easiest to follow until I got used to them. I also see The Serpent King and Etiquette and Espionage on your TBR stack and I liked both of those on audio. 2y
swishandflick @12parsecs Sweet! That's actually already on my TBR so I'll have to check it out! Thanks!! 2y
JenP @mjdowens ooh, that's a great audio! 2y
swishandflick @GarthRanzz I love Ready Player One!! Could probably go for a re-read 🤔 2y
JenP I love anything narrated by Neil Gaiman. Generally his books are hit or miss with me but even the ones I would like if I read them are made awesome by his narration 2y
CaliforniaCay Aziz ansari's modern romance - made me laugh out loud many times when I used to commute 😂 2y
swishandflick @UwannaPublishme @amie Thanks!! Nonfiction/memoirs might be the way to go - I had no trouble at all following Trevor Noah. I also don't read enough nonfiction as it is so maybe this is the way I fill that void on my TBR 😄 Thank you for your suggestions! 2y
swishandflick @mjdowens @JenP Gahh, love Ove!! If only I hadnt so recently read it. I'll still put it on my list, maybe for a re-read/listen at some point 😄 2y
Kris10 I listened to all the Robert Galbraith books (Cormoran Strike series) on audio and loved them, even after bailing on the print version twice. It's super long, but I also finished 11/22/63 not long ago and loved it too. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Al Franken's new book is great - he does a great job narrating. I've listened to most of the Kinsey Millhone books by Sue Grafton on audio. Great narrator and easy reads. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon is amazing on audio - great narrator. 2y
MarriedtoMrT Can't recommend the audio for Shadowshaper enough. Awesome narrator! 2y
JenReadsAlot I do nonfiction on audio. Really enjoyed Modern Romance and Bossy Pants. Many others if you like nonfiction let me know! 2y
Iindseyo One of my go-to's is The Rook. Set in an alternate London, a woman wakes up with no memory and has to figure out who she is. Turns out she works at a Ministry of Magic type org where hijinks ensue. 😊 Fun fish-out-of-water antics and a great British accent from the narrator! 2y
swishandflick @JenReadsAlot Yes! I'm thinking that nonfiction could be my audio niche (I really really enjoyed Born a Crime). Have you listened to Kevin Hart's new book? I'm beginning to gravitate towards that. 2y
JenReadsAlot Born a Crime was great! I have not done Kevin Hart so let me know what you think! 2y

Hey Mystery-Loving Littens, I'm looking for recommendations for somewhat under-the-radar, fun mystery books. On the cozy side.
A good friend has been diagnosed with cancer ?( a "treatable" kind) so she should be okay but still...
She likes mysteries (huge Murder She Wrote fan) but doesn't read them a ton.
Any suggestions are welcome. Beyond the obvious, I'm clueless.
Thank you!

queerbookreader MY GAME okay I made the tag #ilovecozies so check that out and see if any jump out at you 2y
queerbookreader Are you looking for a specific theme cozy? Like culinary cozy, paranormal cozy, historical mystery cozy, etc? 2y

Verity Some fab recommendations here already. @Jess_Read_This tagged me earlier for mentioning Max Tudor and it got me thinking too. I love Donna Andrews Meg Langslow books which are not necessarily under the radar but a good long series which might be good if there's a lot of time to fill. I've tagged the first one. 2y
Verity I also really liked the Mitchell and Markby series when I read it a few years back, which is older and may be more under the radar. Ex diplomat and a policeman. I've tagged the first one but iirc the series is a bit of a slow starter. (edited) 2y
Lindy Best wishes to your friend. My recommendation isn't under the radar, but how about something from this series: 2y
batsy I'm sorry about your friend and wish her all the best. Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey series are fun, witty mysteries 2y
batsy I will also have to mention Sarah Caudwell again, the books are epitome of wit 2y
batsy Stephanie Barron has a series featuring Jane Austen as the sleuth, sounds like it can go very wrong but they're actually quite good. Oooh, and Dorothy Sayers and Josephine Tey ❤️ 2y

Book rec request: indigenous nonfiction, please. Especially books by/about native women, and indigenous perspectives on American history. (preferably written by natives, because we should all have serious trust issues with non-natives writing about indigenous history & perspectives.)Trying to make a much bigger effort to read indigenous perspectives.

drokka This is a fiction, but written by a Native anthropologist who worked under Frank Boaz (so loads of controversy there) and was finally published posthumously. It gives insight into conditions in Sioux communities at the time. It covers things such as community, healing, gender roles. 3y

CouronneDhiver Everyone seems to enjoy Trevor Noah's audiobook: 3y
diovival @CouronneDhiver I noticed that too. I think my library may have the audio copy. 3y
CouronneDhiver @diovival I loved it too, but I read the book instead of checking out the audio 3y
Hooked_on_books Ditto @CouronneDhiver - great audio. I also loved Tina Fey reading Bossypants. And this was a recent great listen: 3y
