Literary challenge: Find Simon & Schuster CEO’s pay package in stack of SEC filings!

Here’s a fun literary challenge for readers who are interested in learning more about the overhead costs of the large publishing houses down in New York City: Find Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy’s compensation package in a stack of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings! Simon & Schuster is a division of the CBS empire, so start with the conglomerate's 365-page 2009 Annual Report (pdf). Then, work your way through the other SEC filings in the stack. Be careful! Don’t get side-tracked by the numerous references to best-selling author Glenn Beck or lost in the 290,000 square feet of office space S&S leases in Midtown at 1230 Avenue of the Americas. Best of success!
