Daily Thoughts 8/15/2011
I checked the displays, picked out some young adult titles to be added from the gift books, updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts, and checked the gift books. I am also spending some time working on Bookletters today. I called people for the Writers Networking Event on August 18, 2011 from 6-8 p.m., and the End of Summer Reading Tea on Wednesday, August 17, from 4-6 p.m. I also spent some time setting up the bag of books which will be raffled off for the participants in the Adult Summer Reading Program.
I wrote a poem for the Writers Networking Event as well as put down five reasons why I write. We are going to do an exercise as a group explaining reasons why we write.
I spent a small amount of time updating the Bookletters page today. It has been a while since I did this.

Two books by the Dale Carnegie Training Institute came in for me to read Stand and Deliver How to Become a Masterful Communicator and Public Speaker and Make Yourself Unforgettable How to Become the Person Everyone Remembers and No One Can Resist. Right now, I am reading Stand and Deliver which is about how to communicate with people both in person and in front of large crowds. It is very much a motivational book. I read a bit of Make Yourself Unforgettable which is about how to have poise and class. Make yourself Unforgettable is very much a book about how to show confidence. Neither of the book is a formal work, there are no references and they have strong opinions.
