Daily Thoughts 5/4/2011 (the crippled god)

Daily Thoughts 5/4/2011

I put some of the art books from the Distribution to Underserved Communities in the display cases in the rotunda.  I particularly like The Portraits speak: Chuck Close in conversation with 27 of his subjects and Street Art Street Life from the 1950s to Now put together by the Bronx Museum.

This morning, I also updated the Twitter account and checked the displays.  I am still going over the Publishers Weekly issue on Book Expo America which lists all the different booths and companies on the floor.  I like to write a list of which vendors I am going to visit. 

The book, The Crippled God by Steven Erikson has come in for me to read today. At the beginning of many of the chapters, Steven Erikson writes a bit of poetry to go with the chapters.  It is fantasy.

I put the book In The Plex How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives by Steven Levy on reserve.
