Gentileschi, Retorica, 1650

Daily Thoughts 08/18/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I placed an interlibrary loan for The Jixia Academy and The Birth of Higher Learning In China by Richard A. Hartnett.

I read a little bit more of The Model Thinker.  I am reading about bell curves, averages, and means.

I watched some of The Great Courses, Writing and Civilization.  I am on the third episode.  Each episode is half an hour long.

The Library of Ramses the Great

There is also a video about the first library in Kanopy called Ashurbanipal's Library and Gilgamesh.
