Daily Thoughts 06/18/2012

This morning, I read some more of The Founder's Dilemma by Noam Wasserman.  The author is writing about how there is often a change in CEO's when a company grows larger.  The venture capitalist often insist on replacing people with more experienced professionals.  This leads to either people leaving or taking downgraded positions.

I checked the displays and gifts this morning.  I also updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts.  We are having the start of the Adult Summer Reading Program on June 22, 2012.  I also talked with colleagues about lost books and checking the African American section.  I am thinking about doing a classic reading list for Between the Covers which is the title of the Adult Summer Reading Program.

In addition, I did a little bit more inventory in the mezzanine.

Three books came in for me to read, The Age of Zeus by James Lovegrove which is a variation on The Age of Ra about alternate history with the Greek gods, A Game of Thrones volume 1 by Daniel Abraham which is based on George R.R. Martin's book, A Game of Thrones, and Online Commuity Management by Deborah Ng.  Online Community Manager is a relatively new profession in the computer world.  It is a bit more than just social media.  It includes blogging, message boards, social media, social media metrics, email lists, and a variety of other topics in a professional context.
