Still Life With Orange and Book, Raphaelle Peale, 1774-1825

Daily Thoughts 07/27/2014

This morning I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I also watched a training video from

I read an advanced reading copy, A Tale of Light and Shadow by Jacob Gowans.  It is a young adult fantasy novel coming out in September.  I rather liked it because of the themes in the novel.  It was a tale of conflict involving marriage, concubinage, intrigue, and love.  The theme of love, trust, and friendship was different than most fantasy novels I have read.  The heroes were not black and white cutouts.  They were deeply flawed.  This made the story deep and intriguing.

Last night, I watched Matilda which is a children's film based on the book by Roald Dahl.  It was very dark humor.  I also Ben Ten cartoon  which was light entertainment.
