Daily Thoughts 11/06/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Jerusalem.  The chapter I am reading now reads like a play, there is another chapter coming up which is a poem.

I also read some more of Death's End.  It is a science fiction novel with lots of big ideas in it.

I read the graphic novel Monstress by Marjorie Liu, illustrated by Sana Takeda.  It is a mix of steampunk, magic, and anthropomorphic creatures.  There are talking cats and people with mental powers.
