Daily Thoughts 5/6/2011
I am enjoying reading James Joyce , A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The Irish Catholic background is different enough for me to hold my interest. It has a rather ornate writing style that is unique as well.
This morning, we had a meeting to discuss the website. It was mainly focused on editing and how to use the website. Pretty soon, I may have access to make some corrections to the site. Hopefully things will get neater.
I also updated the Twitter this morning and checked the displays.
We are joining Better World Books for their discard program. http://www.betterworldbooks.com/
I also have started preparing for ordering again. We have money to start ordering books which is a relief. I also put in my payment for Book Expo America and am looking forward to the Westchester Library Association conference with Seth Godin as the keynote.
I read some more of A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man on the train home. There is a wonderful sense of guiilt and sin to the writing. This guilt has an ornate feel to it. It does not come across as the kind of guilt I am used to feeling.
