Daily Thoughts 11/05/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I took a little bit of time to look at the NEA Big Reads Grant today.

I read a bit more of Jerusalem.  The chapter I am reading righ now is a play.  It has several famous writers in it among others; Samuel Beckett, John Clare, John Bunyan, Thomas Beckett and others.

I read some more of Death's End by Cixin Liu.  Cixin Liu is describing the Dark Forest idea that civilizations will do what they can to survive including destroying competing civilizations before they can become competitors.
