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.

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.
