Daily Thoughts 4/27/2009


Today, I went through a bunch of gift books that had been in storage for a while. These were things which we had planned to add for a while. We are slowly catching up with a back log of books. I prepared four shelves of books to be added. There were several x-men graphic novels which I thought that people would like

I also finished up ordering adult fiction titles for the month. There were a few other miscellaneous tasks that needed to be done; bringing down some art books for storage and filing some law looseleafs.

I took some time to look at a site called http://www.earlyword.com/ , a site which connects librarians and publishers. There are a lot of forthcoming publishers catalogs. They also have some very interesting sites for forthcoming books.

Hey thanks for the link to earlyword. The ebook article was interesting. I have several friends now using Kindles and they think they are the best thing since sliced bread! There was a time when I didn't think the print copy of a book could ever be replaced...now I'm not so sure.

I follow with the idea that a book is a tool and that there are different uses for different tools. I think there will always be some use for paper books just like there are uses for sheets of paper, scrolls, and other things.
