Daily Thoughts 10/06/2014
I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning. I also checked the displays and the gift books. I also did a little work with flyers and programming.
A patron showed me her copy of Behind the Scenes, or Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in the White House by Elizabeth Keckley which is the book, Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker is based on. I ordered a copy of it for our library. We are reading Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker for the Brown Bag Book Club on October 28 between 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
I read some more of Real Happiness at Work. I am reading about resilience which covers subjects like how not to burn out, patience, and self care.
I checked the circulating books in the Job Information Center and did a bit of shifting to make things a little better organized.
I have a copy of Booklist and a copy of the New York Times Book Review to read. I am looking forward to reading Terry Pratchett's new book, A Slip of the Keyboard which is nonfiction essays. For some reason, fantasy and science fiction writers often are very whimsical essayists.
A novel which looks interesting is Black Hat Jack by Joe Lansdale. It features Nat Love as one of the characters.
Library 2.0 online conference is on October 8 and October 9, 2014
