Daily Thoughts 07/27/2014
This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
I also watched a training video from Lynda.com.
I read an advanced reading copy, A Tale of Light and Shadow by Jacob Gowans. It is a young adult fantasy novel coming out in September. I rather liked it because of the themes in the novel. It was a tale of conflict involving marriage, concubinage, intrigue, and love. The theme of love, trust, and friendship was different than most fantasy novels I have read. The heroes were not black and white cutouts. They were deeply flawed. This made the story deep and intriguing.
Last night, I watched Matilda which is a children's film based on the book by Roald Dahl. It was very dark humor. I also Ben Ten cartoon which was light entertainment.

With the rise of phablets (a cross between a cell phone and a tablet) something like this is inevitable.
