Daily Thoughts 02/01/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook.

I read some more of On Her Own Ground today.  I am reading about Madam C.J. Walker's philanthropic efforts including her donation to the YMCA and her contested relationship with Booker T. Washington.

I started reading The Most Good You Can Do How Effective Altruism Is Changing Ideas About Living Ethically by Peter Singer.  This book is about the most effective ways to give your time and money to help people.
