What's on your Kindle/Bookshelf/Nightstand?
For those of us who love to write, there is typically a corresponding love of reading.
Every interesting person I have ever met is a reader.
I thought I'd share a list of my recent reads and see if any of you have read them, or if not, consider them a recommendation.
In any case, you will likely get to know me a bit better - what goes in through reading tends to come out in the personality.
Here's the list from my Amazon Kindle. This doesn't include the number of analog books I buy and read.
I've included the link to the Amazon page if you want to explore further.
You Can Lead a Horse to Water (But You Can't Make It Scuba Dive): A Novel - Robert Bruce Cormack

So... What's the last book you read?

About the Author:
I’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 (www.bebee.com/@kevin-pashuk) , LinkedIn, ITWorld Canada, or at TurningTechInvisible.com.
I also shoot things... with my camera. Check out my photostream at www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk
