Daily Thoughts 04/24/2012

I finished reading An Economist Gets Lunch New Rules for Everyday Foodies by Tyler Cowen.  One of the things which I very much liked about this book is that the author has traveled to many different places and eaten there.  There are comments on the food of Singapore, Tokyo, Italy, Germany, France,New Zealand, China, India, London, Moscow and many other places.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library and finished preparing for future orders in Title Tales.  I am caught up with my magazine reading today.  A new copy of Publishers came in for me to read.

I also caught up on a couple of reports.  I added a few books from the gifts including a James Patterson book and a few paperback mysteries.

On the way home, I read some of The Power of Habit Why We Do What We Do In Life and Business by Charles Duhigg.  It is about people who successfully change their habits. It is also about how advertisers and companies turn products like toothpaste into habit.

I also am continuing to read Infoquake.  The author has a gimmick or neat technology called biologics which allows people to reprogram their bodies.

I spent a little time this evening studying HTML on Codecademy.  I think I am slowly getting a better understanding of it.

This matches the trends I am seeing all kinds of things are being quickly transferred to digital formats from graphic novels to law books.
