Maybe you’ve been trying to put together a digital product to sell to your audience…
But every product idea you have feels costly and time-consuming.
You’re looking for a small bet.
You’ve decided you’ll grow as a person. It’s time. You’re looking for a course maybe, or a book to read, or a community to join. Maybe you’re interested in reading The Practice by Seth Godin with me…
Honestly, you’re just ready for something new.
I’d like to connect both of you, those who have learned and have something to teach, and those of you who are starting to learn, and are going in a new direction.
Books are a great way to learn. What if books were the answer?

People don’t read books because books are… expensive.
Expensive? Compared to a course that runs $500 or $2,000, a book at $19 is a bargain! How can I say that a book is expensive?
The cost of reading a book is in saying no to all the other books you could be reading instead.
And the cost of reading a book is in your own urgency for change.
A book is a lot cheaper. But which book should I be reading?
I could take this course instead. Plenty of people enrolled. But it’s real expensive. It'll be a real time commitment.
This book will require me to change my mind on something. I don’t have the energy to do this alone.
Let’s say you could read a book at the same-ish time as someone else. Get that person’s perspective.
What if you already respected that person’s thoughts and opinions? Maybe that person’s a friend of yours. Maybe that person is someone you follow on social media.
What if you could read that book with that person?
ReadWith will help you read a book as if you’re reading it at the same time as someone else.
On the other hand, maybe you’re a creator. You’ve been thinking of putting together a small product. But what? A course maybe, a short book, a place where you can put what you’ve learned for sale. Those all take time and a special dedication to put to market.
People say you should start by selling your “sawdust”, the side-effects of an activity you’re already doing.
You’ve been reading books anyway. What if you could sell your reading notes? Specifically, what if you could sell those reading notes to people who follow you and who are on a journey to get more thoughtful?
Instead of starting/joining a reading club…
Instead of creating/joining a course…
Instead of writing a book…
Instead of creating a small product…
Instead of reading a book alone...
How it works:
ReadWith will let you read a book at the same-ish time as someone else by letting you see the other person’s notes only when you’re up to the same point in the book. This opens up some possibilities…
I’m Pascal, and I’m building ReadWith, a small app to read books as the same-ish time as other people.
I’m currently reading The Practice by Seth Godin (See a sample note)), and if you’re interested in reading it with me, or if you’re interested in being the first to know about ReadWith’s developments (and be first to secure your username), sign up to be notified below and I’ll be in touch.
