Daily Thoughts 07/17/2013

This morning, I read some more of Burning the Page on the way to work.  I am reading an advanced reading copy which I got from Book Expo America.  The book is due out in August of 2013.  I am enjoying a lot of the anecdotes and personal reminiscences throughout the book.  I like that the idea of the modern bookstore comes from Rome where people would commission works from scribes.

This morning, I checked the Facebook and Twitter account for the library.  I am going to spend a little time next week with the staff discussing Twitter for teen programs.  I also checked the displays and the gift books.

I am going to be in the computer lab today from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Stan Lee has a new book out called How to Draw Superheroes.  It is his third book.  Joe Lansdale has a new graphic novel coming out called Deadman's Road which is western horror themed story.

I placed the book Romulus Buckle and the City of Founders by Richard Ellis Preston on hold.  I also spent some time reading through Kirkus Reviews online.  I also took a quick look through the Romantic Times Book Review top pick, and the Locus Magazine Science Fiction Bestseller List.
