Daily Thoughts 03/19/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of The Raven Tower last night.  There is a mystery in the story which adds to the fantasy novel.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also checked the 600s and some of the mezzanine fiction books.

I looked through a copy of the New York Times Book Review, the Times Literary Supplement, and the New York Review of Books.

I put in two orders for new books today.

I have to work on some grants.  We need to look at the Mount Vernon Arts Initiative.

I have to work on ADP for the payroll.

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I have been reading more of The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie.  I like the notions of gods communicating through animals to people and asking advice of them.  It adds an interesting touch to the fantasy novel.
