Daily Thoughts 10/09/2012
This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library. I also looked at Library Journal Online and Publishers Weekly. I checked the displays and the gift books.
I spent some time talking to the career counselor today. She had a bibliography with a variety of career titles. I talked to our computer person on Friday about computer books. I also spent some time looking through the Chief which is the civil service newspaper for New York city. The Chief includes listings for Westchester county openings.
I read the New York Times Book Review and Publishers Weekly in the afternoon. I also wrote down a few recommended titles from my visit to Barnes and Noble on Monday. I am putting together another order list.
On the way home, I took a break and read On Cats & Dogs Two Tales by Neil Gaiman and a few Love and Rockets comics by the Brothers Hernandez.
I finished watching DC Entertainment Spanish Level 3 on dvd. I'll probably have to start with some light reading, maybe a newspaper or a novel in Spanish and some television programs.
