Daily Thoughts 04/17/2012
I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library this morning. I also updated the current events display with a few books on oil and healthcare. I checked the gift books also and added a few books for young adult as well as some audio cds.
I finished reading the latest Forecast from Baker and Taylor. I am starting on reading Publishers Weekly.
I took a break and did a few exercises on http://codecademy.com/ . They now have exercises for CSS and HTML as well as JAVA. I also watched a little bit of a video on Lynda.com during lunch for Wordpress 3.
I have been reading a lot of reviews from Booklist and other sources. We have our computer training classes tonight.
On the way home, I read some more of An Economist Gets Lunch. I like his argument that more immigrants from a wide variety of backgrounds improves restaurant quality. Immigrants often start new restaurants. I also like his descriptions of shopping in a Chinese grocery store.
