Daily Thoughts 9/16/2010
I finished reading Rework last night and started reading Zero History by William Gibson. William Gibson is using very ornate descriptions of the characters surroundings. He is trying to create a bohemian or avant garde feel to the book.
This morning I checked the displays and updated the current events display with books on topics from the news; North Korea, hurricanes, China, foreclosures, Afghanistan, finance, automobiles, and Apple. The only good news these days seems to come from the electronic gadgets like Ipad. We are planning to do a display on a local jazz musician at the end of the month.
I also was asked to look up business websites. There are a few which are quite good, http://www.myownbusiness.org/ is a site which is a fairly comprehensive view of how to build a business plan. Also, I read Yahoo! Finance sometimes to find out about stocks. http://finance.yahoo.com/
My trip home was extra long tonight. There was a storm and possible tornado this evening in New York. I got to sit in the station for an extra hour and read my book Zero History. I have learned to wait until the train starts moving and ignore the garbled announcements. I am almost half way though the book. I rather like Milgrim the main character. He is quite observant.
