Daily Thoughts 08/03/2012

I read some more of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff this morning.  The author writing about two important concepts, the idea of getting past boredom to relaxation where you feel you do not need to do anything.  The concept which goes along with this is the concept of not doing where you choose not to do certain things like eat more, drink more, or sleep more.  Some people believe it is more important to choose what not to do than what to do.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library.  We got a donation of African American nonfiction books including titles like Eldridge Cleaver Soul On Ice, The Autobiography of Muhammad Ali, and The Autobiography of Angela Davis. 

I also checked the displays this morning.
