Daily Thoughts 03/09/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night on the train home, I read some more of The Astronaut Maker.  I am reading about cooperation between the Soviet Union and the United States.  This include Mir and the International Space Station.

 I finished reading The Astronaut Maker How One Mysterious Engineer Ran Human Spaceflight for a Generation by Michael Cassutt this morning.  The last part is about how George Abbey laid the foundations for the International Space Station before he retired.  The book is very dense with lots of information, much of it appears to come from primary interviews.  It is an insiders view of NASA.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time checking the fiction in the mezzanine.

I finished writing the monthly report for February.

I looked through several copies of Publishers Weekly.
