I have a dock in my office for my iPad and iPhone. Most of the time it is quietly charging my “must-have” devices. However, one morning I decided to listen to some music. So I launched the Pandora app, chose “Journey Radio” and turned up the volume just a little.
That’s when it happened.

In an effort to always improve in business, I have committed to reading more nonfiction books. This is no small task, as I don’t overly enjoy the habit (surprising for a guy in the newspaper business.) While I can dive in to a novel and see the plot play out in my mind, nonfiction books are more like attending a lecture — a very long lecture.
In order to accomplish this, I have employed three types of books: traditional books, e-books and audiobooks. All three have their positives and negatives.
Traditional books are the easiest to use, but my tendency to read in bed at night can cause some minor marital strife (and I don’t like book lights)
E-books are really cool, unless you plan on reading them in bright sunlight on an ipad.
I am proud to be moderating the SNPA Publishers Roundtable in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Thisis an opportunity for publishers to gather and discuss topics of the day with our rapidly changing industry. This separate event, The Publishers’ Roundtable, will precede the very popular ArkLaMiss Circulation Conference, which several publishers traditionally attend. Our setting, on the banks of the Mississippi, is the lovely Ameristar Casino in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The Roundtable will run from 9 to noon, with the Circulation Conference commencing after lunch and continuing through 1 p.m. on Friday.
