Daily Thoughts 9/5/2011
I spent some time updating Twitter and Facebook. I also finished reading No Shelf Required. It was interesting reading the different options for delivering and purchasing ebooks. There are subscriptions, pay per view, automatically buy an ebook after a certain number of views, buy a set of ebooks as a package, subscribe to a series of ebooks as they are released, and many other options.
This morning, I finished taking the Youtube Essentials course on Lynda.com which giave me a better idea how the service works. I plan on learning a number of different programs while I still have the option to use Lynda.com, InDesign, Photoshop, and Flash.
I started reading A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin this morning. I rather like the story because the author does not stint on villainy. He makes his treacherous characters truly nasty. It adds to the story quite nicely.
I took some time to look at the 2011 Washington Irving Book Awards which are presented by the Westchester Library Association. They are all for Westchester authors. http://www.westchesterlibraryassociation.org/bookmark.pdf
