I started my summer vacation a bit early this year: May 26. For me, creating my summer reading list is as important as buying our airfare.
Magnus and I both completed the St. John Power Swim race. We spent a week catching up with our old friend from Central Oregon, Mike Tennant, and his fellow open water swim buddies.
Everyone, including our Oregon peeps, placed top 3 in our age group. Phew! We discovered some pristine beaches, and made time to catch up on reading.
My favorite moment: the 2.3 mile finish!

I started building a luxurious pile of good reads in early May. I love to find titles that help me escape the everyday demands of running a business. Summer reading helps me to see the world, as Marcel Proust said, “through new eyes.”
This season, I needed some literary suggestions from my contemporaries, so I reached out to several marketing leaders. In my latest post, you’ll hear what they recommended. Click here for their favorites.
I owe thanks to those CMOs who contributed:
- Rishi Dave of Dun & Bradstreet
- John McCabe of Transcend Recovery Community
- Kathy Doyle Thomas of Half Price Books
- Nicole Wojno of UserIQ (and a founding member of the Marketing Leaders of Atlanta™)
- Maribeth Ross of Monetate
- Wayne St. Amand with VisualIQ (no relation to UserIQ!)
- Ellen Dalton from Medecision
