Daily Thoughts 04/07/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I went to Barnes and Nobles this morning.  There were a few books that looked interesting including Photoship Elements 2013 for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby and Stock investing for Dummies by Paul Mladjenovic.  I also liked the mystery Arsenic and Old Books by Miranda James, the main character is a librarian.  The Disney Pixar Comics Treasury looked like it would be a good choice for the children's room.  In the business books, the title, Our Iceberg Is Melting: Changing and Succeeding Under any Circumstances by John Kotter reminded me a bit of the book Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson. 

In the laundromat, I started reading Baltic Gambit A Novel of The Vampire Earth by E.E. Knight which is a story of an invasion of earth by alien vampiric creatures. It is part of a series.

178 people have taken the survey for the library so far.
