Daily Thoughts 09/17/2013

This morning, I read some more of Handling the Truth on the Writing of the Memoir by Beth Kephart. She has numerous short chapters. The last chapter I read was on the fuzziness of memory and how people remember things differently.

I checked the Facebook and Twitter for the library this morning and the displays. I also took a few minutes to look at Grumpy Cat which is a silly humor book about a very grumpy cat with a bad attitude. It is an internet site also http://www.grumpycats.com/ It reminds me a little bit of I also checked out the book, Professor Borges A Course on English Literature Edited by Martin Arias and Martin Adis. I rather like the quotes Borges has about libraries.

I spent some time weeding in the oversize books. This afternoon, I have a seminar on One Click Digital which is a system to download electronic audiobooks at 2:00 p.m.. I have a few questions about how it might work with the Kindle Fire or tablets.

For a bit of silliness, Thursday, September 19, 2013 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

This afternoon, I listened to a seminar from One Click Digital on their electronic audiobook platform. I registered for the service, then downloaded the app to the Kindle Fire so I could listen to electronic Audiobooks.

I spent a few minutes looking at Major Employers in Westchester County. http://business.westchestergov.com/images/stories/pdfs/employersMunicipality.pdf
