Daily Thoughts 4/13/2011

Today has been a quiet steady day.  I put in a survey, checked the Twitter account, checked the gift books and made sure the book displays are up to date.  I have a program today at 4:00 p.m.

I am going the Book Expo America Annual Librians Luncheon on May 24, 2011.  It should be excellent.  I am considering going to the Day of Dialog between Librarians and Publishers on May 23, 2011.  It is the first time that they are charging for this event. The fee is $39.95

The book, The Forgotten Founding Father Noah Webster's Obsession and the Creation of an American Culture by Joshua Kendall came in for me to read.  It should be interesting reading if you like things like dictionaries.
