The Boy's King Arthur: Sir Thomas Malory's History of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table, Edited for Boys by Sidney Lanier (New York, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922). Scanned by Dave Pape.  Cover Art by N.C. Wyeth.

Daily Thoughts 06/22/2014

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read a bit more of Capital in the Twenty-First Century.  Thomas Piketty is writing about social programs supported by government in three areas, pensions, education, and healthcare.  Earlier, he criticized the Forbes magazine list of billionaires as being not accurate.  Forbes list of billionaries   This may have contributed to Forbes writing critical articles about the book.

I watched The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug today.  It was a fun action movie.  It did not have the depth of the book, The  Hobbit, but had a lot of interesting fantasy elements in it.  I like how Benedict Cumberbatch voiced Smaug.
