Welcome to some new Weekend Reading folks. It’s been a busy work week so I haven’t had a chance to read as many articles as I would have liked – but that’s life. Earlier this week I shared my two-part interview with indexing guru, author, writer, speaker and all around good guy Andrew Hallam. You can check out my interview starting with this post here.
Have a great weekend and enjoy these fine reads – see you here again next week.
