James Abbott McNeill Whistler, 1873, Woman Reading a Book

Daily Thoughts 10/22/2014

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

I read some more of A Slip of the Keyboard.  Terry Pratchett discusses his love of libraries and bookstores in some of his essays.  For Terry Pratchett, the library is a place for literature.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.  A colleague is proctoring an exam in the computer lab.

The book, Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie came in for me to read.  It won the Nebula Award for 2014 as well as the Arthur C. Clarke Award for 2014.  It is science fiction.

I did a little more shifting of the 900s today.

I finished reading A Slip of the Keyboard. Terry Pratchett is writing about how he had a variety of alzheimers and his father passed away from cancer.  Part of these essays are about assisted dying.

There is a Gmail class from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the computer lab.  Also, the Poetry Workshop is meeting tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
