Daily Thoughts 05/02/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of The Three Body Problem on the way to work.  It is a bit different because it is translated from Chinese and all the characters are Chinese.  Another difference is that most of the characters are scientists.  There is quite a bit about cosmology and physics.  It is hard science fiction.

I also read some more of Americanah.  One of the characters, Ifemelu is writing a blog in the novel which makes it feel a bit modern.

I checked the gift books and the displays this morning.  I am working on the program schedule for June.

I spent some time working on Bookletters to update the widgets on the library home page.  I also looked through the latest New York Times Bestsellers and the Publishers Weekly Bestsellers.

I am looking at the Master Gardener program from the Cornell Extension center which offers free lectures by master gardeners to nonprofits.
