La Lettre, 1908, Jean Beraud
Daily Thoughts 05/01/2012
I mostly relaxed this weekend. I updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library this morning. I also checked the displays and the gift books. I also checked the e-reference this morning.
I am looking at the latest copy of Library Journal and Baker and Taylor Forecast.
I found an interesting looking book Networked The New Social Operating System by Barry Wellman and Lee Rainie.
I am planning on going to the Library Journal Day of Dialog on June 4, 2012. I am registered for it.
The latest Publishers Weekly, April 30, 2012 also has coverage of Book Expo America
I very much enjoy going to book conferences.
We have our computer classes tonight. We have been having very solid attendance.
I finished reading The Power of Habit. Charles Duhigg describes habits at the individual, company, and societal level. A lot of it is about how to change habits in people and organizations. There is quite a bit about destructive habits like gambling and alcoholism. He gives a very simple method to change habits. I think I might start by trying to figure out how to change my habit of buying chips from the snack machine.
