Daily Thoughts 11/12/2010

This morning, I started reading The Master Switch by Tim Wu.

The book, Content Strategy for the Web by Kristina Halvorson came in for me to read.  Hopefully it will be insightful.

I spent some time checking the displays and started reading a few book reviews to get ready for my order meeting next week on November 17, 2010.

I also did some more weeding in the oversize books.  I also spent some time talking about philosophy and religion books for the library.  We are probably going to get Conversations of Socrates by Xenophon and The Enchiridion by Epictetus.
