Daily Thoughts 6/6/2010

I am looking at the American Library Association Advocacy University. It is kind of interesting to look at. A lot of it is about how to put your best foot forward, be nice to patrons, and ask them to support the library.

Started reading a book called Rex Riders by J.P. Carlson, it is a weird western which is not that common to find written for young adults. It is the first title by a new press called Monstrosities Books. I picked up an advanced reading copy of it at Book Expo America. I rather like the interior illustrations by J. Calafiore who draws for Marvel comics.
