Daily Thoughts 04/01/2013

Portrait of Ugolino Martelli by Bronzino, before 1537.  There is a copy of the Iliad on the Scholars Worktable.

Daily Thoughts 04/01/2013

I read some more of Ebook Publishing for Dummies on the way to work.  I am reading about why it is important for authors to build their own website for their ebooks.  It also suggests some different payment methods like Paypal as well as the blogging tool Wordpress.

This morning, we put in a display of books from the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf, Muslim Journeys from the National Endowment for the Humanities.  We were sent bookmarks, several posters, some dvds and a set of books.   I also started working on a display for National Poetry Month which is this April.  Poem in Your Pocket day is on Thursday, April 18, 2013.

I had a half day at work today because I am working on Saturday.  I will always have a half day tomorrow.

I checked the displays, the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  I have a lot of material to read.  There are several issues of the New York Times Book Review, a copy of Library Journal, the Times Literary Supplement, and Publishers weekly on my desk.
