poor rexblog’s almanac

Required reading

poor rexblog’s almanac: While I always list on this page the books I’m currently reading, I’ve rarely mentioned them in a post. However, I’m making an exception for the wonderful book I’m currently enjoying that centers on most of the topics I spend a lot of time professionally (and passionately) with these days: small business and entrepreneurship, early American life, and magazine publishing. I’m just a hundred or so pages into Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson, but can easily predict it will be a blockbusting success. I can also suggest quite confidently that, had they been available, Ben Franklin would have been a blogger.
