Daily Thoughts 04/09/2017

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

Last night, I finished reading New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson.  I rather enjoyed this.  The conflict is different in this book.  It is not military, but focused on finance, environmental issues, politics, and interpersonal conflicts.  This makes the book different.  New York is a partially drowned city which is compared to Venice.  The characters are interesting, they live on the water.  The setting is the center of the story.  Without it there would be no partially drowned skyscrapers, diving, fast boats, and terrifying weather.  This is well worth reading.
