A Copyleft Image of the Beat Poet, Gregory Corso.
Daily Thoughts 6/4/2009 While I was at Book Expo America, I had picked up a free copy of The Shortest Investment Book Ever by James O'Donnell. I picked it up and read it because I saw a review of it at http://libdrone.info/2009/04/book-review-the-shortest-investment-book-ever/ . The review was spot on.
On the train, I started reading Connected The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives by Nicholas A. Christakis, M.D., Ph.D. and James H. Fowler, Ph.D. It is about social networks. According to the book, people have six degrees of separation and three degrees of influence. This is an advanced reading copy, the book will be out in September.
I spent some time this morning selecting some of the titles from this article.
While I was looking at COLLDV-L (Collection Development Listserv) mailing list emails, I came across this blog which I find kind of interesting. It seems to focus a lot on ebooks lately. http://collections2point0.wordpress.com/
