Moving on from the Kindle to my Office Bookshelf

Yesterday, I posted the list of the Kindle books I have read in the last year.  It wasn't a comprehensive list of the books I read, but certainly generated a lot of great discussion, which books are apt to do.

I thought I'd post a photo of ONE of the shelves on the bookcase in my work office.  This doesn't count my home office, my bedroom, the living room, or any of the dozens of electronic books that pass through.

It occurs to me that I might have a problem...  (not enough time to read).

About the Author:

Moving on from the Kindle to my Office BookshelfI’m the Chief Information Officer for Appleby College, in Oakville, Ontario Canada, where my team is transforming the delivery of education through innovative application of technology.

I'm convinced that IT leadership needs to dramatically change how IT is delivered rather than being relegated to a costly overhead department.

In addition to transforming IT in my role as CIO, I look for every opportunity to talk about this... writing, speaking and now blogging on BeBee ( , LinkedIn, ITWorld Canada, or at

I also shoot things... with my camera. Check out my photostream at

Thought I saw Jeffrey Archer in your reading list, but it turns out it was a book of the same name, First Among Equals.
