Daily Thoughts 01/01/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also read the Purchase Alerts and the New York Times Bestseller List and the Publishers Weekly Bestseller list.

I read two graphic novels on Hoopla, Copperhead Volume 1 and 2 illustrated by Scott Godlewski and written by Jay Faerber.  This is a space western with aliens, a main character who is the local sheriff, and a frontier backwater planet.  I read it on Hoopla.

I also read The Autiobiography of James T. Kirk by David Goodman on Overdrive as an e-book.  It pulls together the different stories and books from Star Trek on James Tiberius Kirk.  Kirk moves from being a cadet to being a starship captain, then an admiral, then back to being a starship captain.  It tells the story of how he assembles the crew for the enterprise as well as his loyal crew, Spock, Uhura, Sulu, and McCoy.  It also tells the tragic story of his personal life with the death of his son, David.  I enjoyed reading a series story that pulled together many of the disparate stories from Star Trek into a reasonable whole.
