Daily Thoughts 6/14/2009

Today I got some extra sleep then went to the mall. I walked around had lunch and went to Barnes and Nobles bookstore. It was rather pleasant. I spent some time looking through the self improvement section. I do sometimes read these kinds of books. I bought How to Get Control Over Your Time and Your Life by Alan Lakein. It is a small paperback which costs $6.99. Often small books are the best kind to read. The cost of a book often does not determine the value of its content. I'll probably read some of it in the laundromat this afternoon.

Thanks for the video link, just spent a bit time thinking about these very issues. Sometimes I also worry that people just don't know how much help they can actually get at the library.
