Glue, a browser plugin and website that lets you track books, movies, music, television shows, gadgets, etc., that you’re interested in — and interact with others around these things — recently instituted giveaways. To win an item, one must be the Guru of related items.
My first Glue Guru wins arrived this past week:
• Lost and Philosophy: The Island Has Its Reasons, edited by Sharon Kaye
I used to watch Lost, and I minored in philosophy in college, so this looks interesting to me.
• Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion by Gary Vaynerchuk
I’ve watched Gary Vaynerchuk’s vlog off and on for years now.
• This Is Why You’re Fat: Where Dreams Become Heart Attacks by Jessica Amason and Richard Blakeley
I think this book originated from a blog.
One of the things that first attracted me to Glue was that it was a place I could catalog all of my likes and dislikes, not just the books I’ve read in the few years since I started my blog. In this way, my Glue profile is in some ways a bigger picture of who I am than the snapshot here. Another cool factor right off the bat is that users earn stickers — and they’ll even mail you physical stickers corresponding to those you’ve earned on the site. How cool is that?
Do you Glue?
