Daily Thoughts 03/16/2015
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I finished reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I enjoyed reading the book. It seems to be focused on women, however, the content is entertaining and appealing to a general audience. I like the message that tidying up creates a delightful space and helps you decide what you want to do with your life. The book even has a bit on feng shui at the end.
I worked on an order for new books this morning.
I read Hurricane Fever by Tobias Buckell. It is a near future thriller set in the Caribbean. There is an alliance of Caribbean nations and a spy agency from the Caribbean. It makes for an interesting. The action also occurs during a major hurricane.
The main character, Prudence "Roo" Jones has enough different about him to make him a non cookie cutter hero. Also, the super weapon which Roo ends up stopping is plausible. There is plenty of action, some pathos, and a unique setting.

I also read some more of Messages The Communication Skills Book. I am reading about conflict skills which includes assertiveness, fair fighting, and validation skills.
