Daily Thoughts 7/12/2011

On the way to work, I tried starting Esmerald Santiago, Conquistadora, but I found the book told the story more than it showed they story making for dense reading.  I am going to try another book.  I read the chapter, What Makes an Effective Executive by Peter Drucker in On Leadership.  Part of his idea is that an effective executive delegates well and runs excellent meetings.  Peter Drucker wrote the book, The Effective Executive.

This morning I checked the Twitter account, checked email reference, looked over the displays, and printed up some batches of flyers and bookmarks.  We make bookmarks using cardstock on a variety of different subjects; inspirational fiction, graphic novels, writing books, poetry, and many other subjects.  We are having our second session for beginning computers this evening at 6:00 p.m.

I am going to read The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  It is another advanced reading copy provided by Library Journal.  The language of flowers refers to an English Victorian idea that flowers each have different meanings. The book is coming out in August of 2011.

I am enjoying reading The Language of Flowers.  The imagery of flowers juxtaposed against emotions makes for a very strong story.  The writing is beautiful.
