Whilst Reading: A Portrait of Sofia Kramskoya, the Painter’s Wife (Ivan Kramskoi, 1866)

Daily Thoughts 06/04/2013

This morning, I started reading Number Sense How To Use Big Data to Your Advantage by Kaiser Fung.  This book focuses on the idea that big data is about being able to analyze huge amounts of information and come up with correct answers.  The author describes how easy it is to misinterpret numbers.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.  I am probably going to be taking some more pictures today around the library with the digital camera.  I added a few more titles from Book Expo America.  My box also came in from Book Expo America with books which I plan on adding to the collection and some items which can be used for the Adult Summer Reading program.

I also took a look at the material which the director had brought in to be added to the book sale.  She gave me a copy of Double Double A Dual Memoir of Alcoholism by Martha Grimes and Ken Grimes.  We are slowly putting together something nice for the end of the Adult Summer Reading.

The computer classes are tonight.  There is a Microsoft Word class and a Fundamentals of Computer Operations class.
