Daily Thoughts 09/24/2015

I read some more of Misbehaving the Making of Behavioral Economics.  I am reading about fairness as a concept in financial transactions.  There is quite a bit about what people consider fair.

We discussed the book, The Innocents Abroad today by Mark Twain.  The book club liked it because Mark Twain was critical about everyone and did not seem to spare anyone in his travel writing.  The next book which we are reading is I Am Malala : The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai.  We will be discussing this on October 22, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

I spent some more time contacting people about the Latino Americans 500 Years of History Grant Program.  Last night, Sherrie Baver showed Episode 4, The New Latinos of the dvd.  We also discussed Latino immigration and culture in New York.  The episode was mainly about Latino immigration from the Caribbean focusing on Dominican and Puerto Rican immigration to New York and Cuban immigration to Miami.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this afternoon.  I also checked the gift books and the displays.

The latest Bookpage has come in for me to read.  I also have a copy of the New York Review of Books to read this afternoon.
