Daily Thoughts 01/27/2011
On the way to work, I read some more of Cowboy Angels by Paul McAuley. Some of the alternate Americas are very interesting.
I got to work a little late because of the snow today. I spent some time working on a grant for ereaders. I still have quite a bit to do. I have been looking at the Sony Reader Program for devices and ebooks. http://ebookstore.sony.com/library-program/ I also spent some time on the Overdrive site looking at compatible devices for the ebooks which we get from them.
I also took a few minutes to look at the new library survey which we have. We are going to look at it a little more. It needs some work. http://www.mountvernonpubliclibrary.org/node/111
I put the Web Content Strategists Bible by Richard Sheffield and The Content Management Bible by Bob Boiko on hold through interlibrary loan. No libraries in our system currently have them.
On the way home, I read some more of Cowboy Angels by Paul McAuley. It has gotten even better, there is now a twist in the turing gates. The main character adds an element of time travel to the ability to travel to alternate histories. This makes the reading captivating.
