You're darn tootin' Wednesday links. We're leaving the realm of the Internets until Monday, so we thought we'd leave you some reading material until we get back.
We know this last year hasn't been an easy one for many people. It was a year many of us or our friends lost their jobs. It was a year that saw the closing of the Milwaukee institution we sprang forth from, Harry W. Bookshops, after 80 years in business. Everything certainly did look grim there for awhile, and for many it still does. But, we still feel we have a lot to be thankful for and hope that those of you on the other side of this screen feel the same. In other words... Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Dylan Schleicher has been a part of the 800-CEO-READ claque since 2003. Even though he's stayed on at the company, he has not stayed put. After beginning in shipping & receiving, he joined customer service and accounting before moving into his current, highly elliptical orbit of duties overseeing the ChangeThis and In the Books websites, the company's annual review of books and in-house design. He lives with his wife and two children in the Washington Heights neighborhood on Milwaukee's West Side.
