News & Opinion: Yes, Reading is Sexy.

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 5:06 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Last week we gave Jack a Christmas present. You see, long before our beloved Jack founded this crazy entity now known as 800-CEO-READ and became an author, he ran a record store with his wife Ann. [Local Milwaukeeans out there can probably recall his nickname.] And so, we gave him 45 RPM: A Visual History of the Seven-Inch Record.
The book was accompanied by this pencil (a testament to the hipness of booksellers and readers).
Yes, reading is sexy. Thanks for reminding us
