Chris Bessler grew up loving books. “We lived out in the sticks near Glide, Ore., a little logging town between Interstate 5 and Crater Lake,” Bessler said. “We didn’t get television reception, so every week my mom would take us to the library and we’d load up as many books as we could carry.” Having worked his way through Walter Brooks’ Freddy the Pig series, Bessler moved on to Steinbeck and Twain. Yet it was a book of a totally different nature that has played a major role in the survival of Keokee Co., Bessler’s Sandpoint media and marketing business/Michael Guilfoil, SR. More here.

Question: Did you grow up with a love of books?
