Daily Thoughts 5/9/2009
I enjoyed reading an article from the May 1, 2009 Library Journal, Publishers and Librarians, Two Cultures One Goal, on Pp. 22-25. It is a short article comparing a day in the life of an editor and a librarian. There is a link at the end of the article on marketing book to libraries. http://www.libraryjournal.com/publishers .
I went through my typical reading this morning, Booklist, Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly. I have to read fast because I have so much to read and look at. I also looked through the Public Library Core Collection, Nonfiction, Thirteenth Edition for books to possibly purchase in the 800 dewey number.
A book of inspirational quotes by bloggers. It is kind of pretty. http://www.shadesofcrimson.com/TheQuoteEffect.pdf

Ekaterina Sedia, one of my favorite new authors has an excerpt of an interview on Locus online. Her fantasy novels are very interesting.http://www.locusmag.com/2009/Issue04_Sedia.html
