Daily Thoughts 07/31/2013

This morning, I read some more of Anno Dracula: Johnny Lucardo by Kim Newman.  The story has a lot of interesting ideas in it.  Andy Warhol is shown in the vampire spirit, Orson Welles directs a version of Dracula, and history changes in various ways.  The book has a definite edge to it with vampire blood as a kind of drug.

I checked the displays and the social media for the library.  The book, I Wear the Black Hat Grappling With Villains (Real and Imagined) by Chuck Klosterman came in for me to read today.  It is on the New York Times bestseller list.

I spent some time looking at the Washington Irving Book Awards which are presented by the Westchester Library Association for local authors.

The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.

I spent some time reading through Publishers Weekly.  I also spent a little time working on author visits today.
