Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Though, okay, one kinda catch. You don't have to, but if you are cool with spreading the word however you are most comfortable doing so, that would be amazing. Are you best at blogging? Then blog.

For those of you familiar with my blog, you may know that I am a data nerd at heart, so I enjoy trying out book salesy things and then blogging about the (un)success. Here’s a list of such posts: The first day's results have already been posted, here:

I hope everyone takes this post as the sincere giveaway that it is and not as a shitty marketing message. After all, I’m giving these books away for FREE, meaning, I’m making exactly $0.
