News & Opinion: A New Newsletter

By: Sally Haldorson @ 8:08 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

You may notice something new on the front page of our website (and if you don't, make sure to scroll down below The Daily Blog). There in the middle of the page you can opt in to receive our new (!) email newsletter, The Keen Thinker. Those of you who have been following us or have been our customers for many years may be familiar with the name, The Keen Thinker. For a couple of years we did offer a paper newsletter by the same name, and when we were exploring the different ways to reconnect with our customers, offering them a quick look at what's new here at 800-CEO-READ and which current business books are 'don't-miss', we kept coming back to the name. We believe it really represents what we are trying to do with this newsletter: provide you with information to make you a keener business thinker. There are 11,000 business books published each year. There is endless information about business being pumped out onto the Internet each day. After 25 years in the book selling business, 800-CEO-READ can act as a filter for all of that information, while, hopefully, inspiring and entertaining you at the same time.

If you'd like to receive your monthly edition of The Keen Thinker, please sign up today! We promise that The Keen Thinker will continually offer insider information on new books you should be reading, current trends in business thought and even an opportunity to win some free books. Also? An opportunity to get to know us at 800-CEO-READ a little better, so that we, in turn, can get to know you better.
