One of the biggest benefits we've found in the way people use Hugdug is their ability to share the work of people they respect. Today more than ever, ideas spread horizontally, from person to person, not from the top down, not from an ad or from a talk show or from a promotion.
On a regular basis, I hand sell the work of Tom Peters, introducing his classics to people who didn't grow up with him. This one is my favorite.
The Hugdug team has hand-built some curation pages that make it easy for people to find a book they love and review and share it. Here are some authors who are doing amazing work... do you care enough to share it?
Ideas that spread, win. If you speak up about an idea or an artist you care about, the word spreads, the world changes. Find a favorite and tell someone...

Here are some musicians, too.
Also! Thanks for your early support of Hugdug. Last week, we sent a donation of $25,000 to charity: water to celebrate our launch. Now you can review a book and make a difference...
