A Reading in the Garden, 1902, Theo Van Rysselberghe

Daily Thoughts 07/10/2013

This morning, I read some more of Who Owns the Future?  He has some interesting polemics.  A lot of the book is about how digital enterprises are often winner take all businesses which concentrate wealth.  Jaron Lanier makes an argument that too much wealth is being concentrated in too few hands because of digital technologies.

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  I also spent some time writing my monthly report and compiling statistics.  I checked the displays and printed a few more fliers for the computer classes.  I have to do something for the Adult Summer Reading.

I spent some time reading reviews from Times Literary Supplement, Publishers Weekly, and the New York Times Book Review.  I have some more ordering to do.

The fiction room is now reopened which is nice.

I am looking at a Bestseller List for African American titles called The Power List.  There are a few interesting titles.
