Charles Dickens, William Powell Frith, 1859

Daily Thoughts 9/21/2011

I finished reading A Pleasure to Burn Fahrenheit 451 Stories by Ray Bradbury.  Two of the stories are novellas which the book Fahrenheit 451 is based on; Long After Midnight and The Fireman.  They are variations on the central story.  The book is pleasure to read.  It was published by Subterranean Press.

This morning, I updated the Facebook and Twitter account.  I also checked the displays and spent some time on learning a bit more about Drupal and Microsoft Word 2007.

A few of the books read for the Biography Book Club on Abraham Lincoln were Lincoln A Foreigners Quest by Jan Morris, The Lincoln Enigma Edited by Gabor Boritt, and Lincoln by David Herbert Donald.  We are going to read a biography of a famous New Yorker for the next Biography Book Club.

We had the Internet Job Search Hour today from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m..  A lot of it is helping people fill out long complex applications for positions like nursing assistant or security guard which take almost an hour to fill out.

I also spent a small amount of time weeding in the mezzanine.  The mezzanine is the name for the two floors for storage of older material which the library has.  There are always things that need to be done.
