At Home, Julius LeBlanc Stewart, 1897
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 enjoy reading Tobias Buckell's books.

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.
