No, I don’t know where I’m going
July 8, 2012 — books, Charlie Huston, Facebook, Google+, Jo Nesbo, Pinterest, reading, The Leopard, The Sunday Salon, Twitter
When I last left you, I just had started reading Full Dark House, the first book in the Bryant and May mystery series, by Christopher Fowler, and had put the The Leopard by Jo Nesbø, the latest available book in the U.S. in the Harry Hole series, on hold as an e-book from the Free Library of Philadelphia. I didn’t keep going with Full Dark House (not because it was bad, but because of being sidetracked by things such as Pinterest and Instagram) and then The Leopard arrived earlier than I thought, so now I’m reading that.
The second Joe Pitt Casebook, No Dominion by Charlie Huston, also arrived earlier than I thought so that will be up next. Beyond that, I don’t know, but I’m already adding more possibilities when I shelf-read at the library where I work. I now can add books that I “find,” thanks to a GoodReads app on my phone where I can scan the barcodes of books that I’m finding that I want to read later. I’m also including the list of books on Pinterest on a board appropriately called Books “found” while shelf-reading.
Two other Pinterest boards that I’ve added this week are for photo memes in which I’m participating this month (but not on the blog) on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well: #dailybookpic and #photoadayJuly. More information on the #dailybookpic can be found here; more info on #photoadayjuly, here. At the end, I might provide a slideshow to each, if I can figure out how to do it with Instagram photos.
In addition to joining the ranks of Pinterest and Instagram, I’ve also rejoined the ranks of Google+ (I can be found here), although like when I was there previously, I am wondering why. No one ever seems to be there and I feel like I’m talking to myself. At least with Instagram, I’m getting some “hearts” and know that people are seeing what I’m putting up. With Google+, it’s nothing even though I’ve tried to vary what I’ve been putting there: sort of the yang to the ying that I put on my Facebook page.
What social networks are you on? Leave me links if you like and I’ll follow you. What do you think of Google+? I now have one link that helps my readers find where I am across various platforms: about.me/unfinishedperson. Within the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to update my “about” pages on the various platforms to make my profile more consistent among them than it had been previously.
