Reading in the Cismigiu Garden, Theodor Aman, 1879
Daily Thoughts 09/27/2013
On the way to work, I read some more of The Goal. Eliyahu M. Goldratt does a lot of explaining how bottlenecks occur in manufacturing. It gives some insite in how to spot where a company gets tied up and fails in their every day activities. It also does an excellent job of explaining the concept of workflows in an easy to understand manner. I think that I am going to go back and read The Innovators Dilemma and The Effective Executive.
I checked the library Facebook and Twitter this morning. I also checked the displays. I spent a little time looking at bestseller lists for ebooks. New York Times Ebook Fiction http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/e-book-fiction/list.html New York Times Ebook Nonfiction http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/e-book-nonfiction/list.html Digital Book World Bestseller Lists http://www.digitalbookworld.com/category/ebook-best-sellers/. I also took some time to look at some reports generated on ebook use at our library. It was interesting.
I also checked the displays and the gift books. I have some weeding to do in the afternoon. It has been another steadily busy day.
I did a little more weeding and checked out The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker.
