Daily Thoughts 03/05/2012

On the train to work, I started reading Hide Me Among the Graves: A Novel by Tim Powers.  It is an enjoyable ghostly vampire story with quirky characters.  I like the idea of people carrying small jars of garlic in their pockets to protect from the supernatural and wearing metal on their shoes to confuse ghosts and other creatures of the night.

This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.  I still have to go through the Forecast catalog from Baker and Taylor.

I filled out part of my member profile for New Work City.
