Daily Thoughts 02/18/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.  I also looked at the website.

I read some more of Better Living Through Criticism.  I am reading about why critics cannot be neutral in their presentation.  The thing they are reviewing must be good or bad.

I read some more of Stoned as well. I am reading about Emeralds.  The deep green color and rarity make emeralds precious.  I learned that the first emerald mine was in 330 BC.  Jewels help create empires and wealth.

I watched two episodes of the television show, The Librarians Filing Evil Under History on Hoopla.  It was silly fun.  I like that the main library disappears and the heroes are now in an annex.
