Jim Cox Report: August 2021

Dear Publisher Folk, Friends & Family:

I have recently been interviewed by a reporter from my local newspaper, The Oregon Observer. There's even a big photograph of me. For anyone that wants to see what I look like these days here is a direct link to the interview as archived on the Midwest Book Review web site:

This month's "Jim Cox Report" is again abbreviated because I have a couple more hospital based tests to undergo before surgery later this month and I'm pretty much sidelined while my daughter and Managing Editor Bethany takes care things in the office.

Thanks again for all the well wishes I've been getting. They mean a lot to me.
