In a post yesterday, I pondered whether my son Justin read my blog and whether he would read that post where I offered to buy him a book about the corporate culture at Apple computer. It's a book that had him written all over it. He's always been fascinated by organizations and how they work and how they stay viable.
And I knew he's a Kindle user on his iPad and that he reads a lot particularly on his bus ride to and from work. I was sure he had heard of "Inside Apple" by Adam Lashinsky of Fortune magazine, but I knew that he probably had a stack of unread books on his iPad.
I still thought it would be a neat gift for those days when the bus is caught in traffic. So, I got him the book by purchasing a gift card where all he had to do to get the book was click on a link. It's a great way to buy somebody a gift.
Yes, he does read my blog. I knew that. And I'm happy that we have that point of contact through blogging.
Next, I have to find out about kid's books on the Kindle. My almost two-year-old grandson in Bosnia is a prime candidate. Then there's my daughter, my daughter-in-law and my son-in-law. I love buying people books.
