Tomorrow we’re off to Kansas City for the week to visit family. But before I go, I’m front-loading the blog with posts to appear Monday through Friday. Each day will feature a picture from my publishing past. Be prepared for obsolete technology, happy memories, and lessons learned.

Today I’m loading up my iPod with new music and This American Life podcasts. I dug out my Sony eReader and am looking forward to getting into Bossypants by Tina Fey and Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell. It’s true: Even this “real”-book-fan / paper-sniffer draws the line at lugging two hardcover books halfway across the country and back.

Have a good week and I’ll catch up with ya’all on the other side.
