Daily Thoughts 10/02/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.
This morning, I finished reading Transcendental by James Gunn. It was a fast paced science fiction story. I liked how many of the aliens in the story got separate chapters to describe their place in the cosmos. This was excellent. Humans are new to a galactic civilization. The theme of transcendence or becoming more than you are makes the story gripping.
I also am reading Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker. It is different that what I usually read. The novel is about manners, style, etiquette, social position, and of course dressmaking in the historical context of the civil war. It is a polite novel set in a strife ridden era.
I checked the gift books and the displays. I am starting to take out the holiday books for display. The music will come out later this month.
I also spent some time going through the Job Information Center. I was looking through the resume books.
