Daily Thoughts 5/5/2010The April 26, 2010 issue of Publishers Weekly is the Book Expo America issue. I made a quick pass through it today. I'll probably look at it closer a little later on. There was an interesting article on bookstores in New York. I was especially intrigued by Idlewild Books http://www.idlewildbooks.com/ which is a bookstore focused on world literature and travel literature which is a very nice combination. I might go over to the shop to look at their books on learning foreign languages. This is the first time I have seen foreign language courses taught in a bookstore.
Today was a pleasant day. I had a chance to get my orders ready for next week as well as make a few suggestions to other people. We break up our ordering among a variety of staff and assign them different sections of the dewey decimal system and fiction.
I also spent some more time thinking about what I might be doing in the next few weeks.
On the train home, I finished reading Making Ideas Happen. This is a book trailer for the book. It is a piece of creative advertising.
