Daily Thoughts 09/15/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading The Jixia Academy and the Birth of Higher Learning In China: A Comparison of Fourth Century B.C. Chinese Education and Ancient Greece.  I learned some things about Chinese philosophy which made me want to read more about Confucius and Xunzi.

I also read some more of History of Libraries in the Western World.  I am reading about small private collections of books in the American colonies.

I started reading The Art of Happiness.  It is focused on different national concepts of happiness like Gross National Happiness in Bhutan.
