Daily Thoughts 11/25/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I rested on the way to work.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time checking the 800s.  I also looked over a few books and dvds that were not in the system.

I spent some time cleaning and organizing my desk. I found a reminder to purchase some new chairs for the computer lab.  I also have to go over a database list.  In addition I have to write a report for a grant which I finished the programming for.  There is usually exit paperwork for grants involving programming.

I checked out the graphic novel In Search of Lost Time: Swann's Way A Graphic Novel Marcel Proust Adaptation and Drawings by Stephane Heuet, Translated by Arthur Goldhammer.  This is an adaptation of a classic novel.

It is a story about French society.  It is about love and relationships.  I love the illustrations.  They have a wonderfully aristocratic quality to them.  It is very different than what I usually read.  I enjoyed reading a story that has a genteel quailty to it.  The intrigue is one of the illicit affair, the mistress, and where ones place is in society.
