I am a big believer that leaders must be readers. But you probably have the same problem I do – more books are calling my name than I have time to digest. Sometimes I need help in knowing which are the best, and sometimes I just wish for a summary. Either way, if you’re a leader, you need to subscribe to The Vision Room’s SUMS reMix!

I’m an avid reader, online and off. I love great blogs and I love good books even more. I may never own a Kindle because I still like to open a book with a spine.

Just a quick update. My wisdom teeth extraction took less than an hour. When we left the oral surgeon’s office we headed to Walmart where I was instructed to wait in the car while my wife got my prescriptions filled. I got bored and tried to get out of the car, which set the alarm off. So I wandered into the store in search of Angie. I couldn’t find her, so I made a bank deposit and stumbled back to the pharmacy again. When she found out where I was, I was in trouble!
