Daily Thoughts 07/17/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Homo Deus on the way to work.  I am reading about how we create stories about nations, gods, and corporations.  How humans organize themselves around abstract concepts.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also worked on some orders of books.

I handed in the CDBG Community Development Block Grant at noon today.

I have a copy of the New York Times Book Review to read.  I also have a copy of the Ingram Advance for August to read.

I am meeting with the Literacy volunteers today at 2:15 p.m. in the fiction room.  The meeting was interesting.  We had three people who came.

The Adult Board Game night is today from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

I read a little bit more of Homo Deus on the way home.  I am finding that some of the descriptions of what humanism is to be inaccurate and simplistic. Also, some of the statements about religious belief are questionable.  I like many of the ideas in the book, but do not find them to be convincing.
