A number of people asked me about my use of SleepPhones after I mentioned them here last week. Yes, you can use a speaker next to your bed and listen to music. But if you sleep next to your husband or wife, then they have to hear that music or podcast too. SleepPhones let you listen while he or she sleeps!
I’m excited about the books and articles this week, so check them out!
Book I read this week: The Ultimate Unofficial Dropbox Guide by Jeffrey Abbott. Like Evernote Essentials, this is another terrific eBook explaining how new and experienced users can incorporate Dropbox into their workflows. I haven’t used Dropbox to store my entire photo and music libraries, but that is one of many ideas I took away from this book. Check it out!
Book I’m reading next week: How to Argue & Win Every Time: At Home, At Work, In Court, Everywhere, Everyday by Gerry Spence. Spence is a famed defense attorney. I heard Brendon Burchard say once that this book is amazing, so I want to see what it’s all about.
