I was walking in downtown Chicago recently, and I happened to walk into the Borders bookstore on Michigan Avenue. I went in to pick up some new books to read on my overnights. I picked up a copy of The Power Broker by Stephen Frey and The Second Horseman by Kyle Mills. If you are into political / mystery / thrillers, I think these two books would be a great read.
So, after I found the two books that I really wanted, I decided to go over and look at their massive periodical section. As I was perusing the aisles, I happened upon the aviation section. As my eyes were wandering over the selection I noticed an Airways Classics magazine No. 3. Lo and behold, it is ALL about Southwest Airlines and our thirty-five (35) year history! This is a MUST have for any Southwest Airlines fan. As I opened the front cover, a picture of fellow blogger Brian Lusk was on the front inside page. Evidently, Brian has been writing for this magazine since 1989. I'll go ahead and give you a tease about what is in the magazine and then you can go out and purchase a copy for yourself.
The contents of the magazine include: 35 Years of Luvin' You, Creating Southwest Liveries, Southwest's Other Boeing, Southwest's 3-D Scrapbook, The Next Generation, Thoughts on A Legend, The Heart of Southwest and Gary Kelly: Reflections and Vision.
The magazine also has some great pictures. So, this afternoon, instead of reading one of the new books that I purchased, I spent the afternoon reading about this GREAT Company that I work for.
If you happen to pick up a copy, be sure to come back here and let Brian know what a WONDERFUL job he did authoring, compiling, and sharing this information with us.
WAY TO GO, BRIAN!
