Portrait of Chino Hyogo at His Writing Desk, Katsushika Hokusai, 1835

Daily Thoughts 03/29/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I spent some time on the library survey.

I also watched a little bit of the documentary Fed Up which is about processed foods and sugar and how it is making many children severely obese.  The movie is a challenge to the food industry about how much sugar there is in food.  Katie Couric is the main voice of the film.

There are a couple of interviews with Michael Pollan in the film.  Michael Pollan wrote the books In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manual, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, The Omnivore's Dilemma, The Pollan Family Table, and many other books about food.

I read the New York Times Book Review today.  I bought a copy of the Sunday New York Times.  I don't usually do this.  It has gone up to $5 for the Sunday newspaper.  I read it at the laundromat.
