Daily Thoughts 12/12/2016

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I also checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I spent some time looking through the flyers I had sent out with Constant Contact and the flyers I had posted on Facebook for the last several years.

I read the latest copy of the New York Times Book Review.  I also placed the book, The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter by David Sax on hold.

I also read a copy of Publishers Weekly today.

On the way home, I finished reading American Philosophy A Love Story by John Kaag.  I enjoyed reading the story.  The end part was interesting, there was some material on Pearl S. Buck and Jane Addams of Hull House which was satisfying.  I like the idea of examining the history of a professors personal library from a both an antiquarian, philosophical, and historical perspective.  I enjoyed reading this book because it gave me some new understanding on how people gain meaning from books.
