The Brown Teapot, Gwen John, 1915-1916

Daily Thoughts 08/14/2013

I read some of the Bourne Supremacy by Robert Ludlum this morning.  I think the films are better than the book.  Partially because the story is very action oriented.  Also, in the book, the main character, Jason Bourne who is also known as David Webb is a headcase with schizophrenia, paranoia and a violent, unpredictable background.  This makes the book a bit confusing sometimes. Also, the mix of conspiracy theory, secret organizations, patriotism, and stereotypes makes thing intriguing but very messy in the novel.

 I think the movies help clarify the characters actions, making them more predictable, and create a more focused psychological background for the main character.  The main character is still highly unpredictable, willing to do unexpected things which a normal person would not do, but also is much more coherent than the novel.

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library and the displays.  I also spoke to Atomic Learning about their product.  In addition, I did a little bit more weeding.

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