Daily Thoughts 12/27/2010
I started reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson last night in addition to Letting Go of Words. I am planning on catching up on my popular reading.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is quite enjoyable. It draws you in slowly and becomes more and more gripping as you read the story.
The Alternative Budget is up on the city website. It leaves the $500,000 cut in place for the library which would very likely shut the Mount Vernon Public Library down. http://cmvny.com/lg-fd/public-notice/2011AlternativeBudget.pdf
I plan on going to the budget meeting tomorrow. It feels like a kind of last stand. But, at least I know I've done everything I can on my part.
I like the idea that the movie publicity people bought books in bulk then shipped them to different people to make True Grit a bestseller.
