News & Opinion: We're moving!
Our staff will be sharing some of their favorite memories of the early days of our company here on In the Books in the weeks before our official move. We're a 33-year-old company born of a 82-year independent bookselling legend, so we have a story or two up our sleeves. We hope you enjoy our walk down memory lane.
Most importantly, the family here at 800-CEO-READ wants to thank each and every one of you that has bought our books, read our articles, delivered our packages, written or published the books we sell, served on our board, worked within these walls, and supported us in endless other ways. Without you, we could not take this leap. Our hearts are full with gratitude and our brains are swimming with new possibilities. We are excited to share this next chapter in our company's long history with you.
By the end of this month, you will be able to find us here:

About Blyth Meier
Blyth Meier joined us to lead our marketing department in 2015 after doing that work for the Milwaukee Film Festival for the previous five years. While she made good use her filmmaking degree at that job, here she returns to her first love—books. As an undergraduate English major at the University of North Dakota, Blyth’s favorite time of year was the annual Writers Conference, which brought many of her soon-to-be favorite authors to the remote Northern Prairie: Peter Matthiessen, August Wilson, Toi Derricotte, Mark Doty, Natasha Trethewey, and Terry Tempest Williams. Blyth lives in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee, where she gardens, cooks, takes photographs, makes films, and participates in a yearly 24-hour bike race. At 800-CEO-READ, she runs our social media accounts, writes for In the Books, and is the keeper of all our marketing spreadsheets.
