ANCIENT WISDOM currently features items on Metaphysics, the 2012 Mayan prophecies, Yoga, Astrology and Witchcraft,  but I will be rotating in materials that draw on other areas: Tarot, Feng Shui, Meditation, etc-- over the course of the next month.

PSYCHIC

On display at the front of the library, materials on PSYCHIC ABILITY.   Read about the lives and work of famous psychics: Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Sylvia Browne, Alison Dubois, John Edwards, James Van Praagh, and others. Learn about recognizing and developing your own psychic abilities, the different forms of psychic ability: clairvoyance, clairaudience, dream mediumship, etc. Is there an increase in the number of psychic people in recent generations or were there more in ancient times? How have psychics helped police departments? Has the government employed psychic spies? Read how tarot cards and runes aid in psychic perception. Can we communicate with the dead? with guides, angels or other unembodied spirits?

The display will be refreshed with materials on these and other related subjects throughout this month and I will be putting together a bibliography over the course of the next few days, so watch for that. Copies will be available on the display at the front, and at the Reference department public service desks.

Mystery Readers Survey

Sisters in Crime, an organization I have mentioned before, recently released a study they commissioned to learn more about mystery readers and book buying.  Entitled The Mystery Book Consumer in the Digital Age, it examines the purchasing habits of over 1000 mystery readers in 2009/2010.

Backup your computer

You back up your computer, right? Right? Come on, be honest.

Truth be told, few people backup their computers at all. Whether you fall prey to malware, your hard drive crashes, or if your notebook gets lost/stolen, all of these situations can be nightmares. Losing all of your data because it isn't backed up can be a disaster.

Financial records. Music. Photos and videos. Genealogy projects. Work documents. Some of these things can be backed up with a site like the sublime Dropbox.com, but such services are a poor substitute for a full backup of your personal computer.
