Daily Thoughts 7/29/2011
Today, I checked the Twitter account, checked the book sale, and checked the displays. I spent some time talking to our new sales representative from Better World Books. I like to think of Better World Books as a more acceptable way of letting our discards go. They take old library discards and sell them. I also like to think of the book sale next to the circulation desk as a way to generate good will.
I read two copies of the New York Times Book Review today and checked the purchase alerts to see what people are placing on hold. I also placed the book The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan on hold. It was reviewed in the New York Times Book Review.
We also got some more donations today. There were a few young adult books worth adding. I also compiled the monthly statistics today.
On the way home, I read some more of The Successful Business Plan and did some basic exercises to outline questions about the type of business I would be interested in doing.
