Portrait of a Reading Man, Hans Memling, 1485
Daily Thoughts 12/22/2018
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
Last night, I finished reading Space Stations The Art, Science, and Reality of Working in Space by Gary Kitmacher, Ron Miller, and Robert Pearlman. I enjoyed reading this. It had pictures of many different space stations, Mir, Skylab, the International Space Station as well as many stations that were proposed but never built.
I also started reading Capitalism in America A History by Alan Greenspan and Adrian Wooldridge.
I contacted some more people for the Mount Vernon Public Library Bridging the Digital Divide campaign. https://www.givegab.com/campaigns/teen-computer-lab
I started listening to the series The Science of Natural Healing on Hoopla presented by Mimi Guarneri today.
I read a novella of 109 pages called The Black God's Drums by P. Djeli Clark. It is a fantasy set in a steampunk New Orleans. A Haitian scientist has a secret weapon which must not fall into the wrong hands. The main character creeper, is a young girl touched by the gods. The premise and story are entertaining and well put together. It was a quick read.
