Daily Thoughts 06/27/2012
I took a break from reading and thinking about libraries on Tuesday. This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library. I think I am going to buy The Complete Idiots Guide to Creating a Social Network by Angela Crocker.
I went to the local bookstore today and bought The Complete Idiots Guide to Creating a Social Netowrk by Angela Crocker. I also bought The Age of Odin by James Lovegrove. I am looking forward to reading this.
I decided to change my plans and not go to General Assembly or the Data Meetup and stay at home and rest. I also started reading The Age of Odin. I like that the main character, Gideon Coxall is a doubter in a land of mythological gods. It adds a nice touch to the story.
I went to my local library this afternoon. I used the computer at the library and I downloaded a copy of The Age of Anansi which is a novella over the libraries wireless network to my Kindle. I don't have wireless at home which is fine for me. It cost me $3.49 for the novella. Novellas are not usually sold in bookstores and are sometimes hard to find in libraries.
