Are you curious about the sharing movement but not sure where to begin? Or, are you a sharing maven and want to inspire your friends and family to integrate sharing into their lives? Either way, we have the perfect resource for you to experience how sharing, in both big and small ways, can turn your life around.
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the first book in our Guide to Sharing series — “How To: Share, Save Money & Have Fun” — a collection of insightful how-to articles written by our talented writers on sharing skills, housing, food, music, and so much more. Interested in traveling without money or sharing an education? We’ve got you covered.
As we’ve learned over the years, sharing is not only great for communities and the environment, it’s also great for your wallet. In the book, Shareable editor and co-founder Neal Gorenflo explains how he was able to save a whopping $17,000 in one year purely by experimenting with various sharing initiatives in his daily life — coworking, utilizing peer-to-peer car rentals, turning to alternative rental and banking services, and creating a “nanny share” with families with kids. While you may not have the same results, it’s worth giving sharing a shot to see how it could impact your life, right? And as Neal points out in his piece, sharing led him to have meaningful interactions with complete strangers, which is always a plus.
Order a copy of the book from Shareable (via LuLu) in both print on demand and e-book formats. Also, keep an eye out for the e-book on Kindle, Apple iBooks, Nook, and the Kobo Bookstore and for the print version at your local bookstore, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
Happy reading and sharing!
