Portrait of a Scholar, Adriaen van Ostade, 1665
Daily Thoughts 06/27/2018
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I finished reading Happiness A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill by Matthieu Ricard Foreword by Daniel Goleman. This is a book of buddhist meditation focused on relieving suffering and creating happiness and compassion. It is well written for the western layman. There are a lot of references to western philosophy in this book.
I also read some more of The Library Book. I am reading about how Ray Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 in the basement of the Los Angeles Public Library.
I checked the gift books and the displays this morning.
I spent some time working on Adult Summer Reading.
I also did a little bit of weeding. We are planning on shifting and weeding more in the oversize books.
We are going to get some signage priced soon.
