William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - Inspiration (1898)
Daily Thoughts 09/18/2019
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
On the way to work, I read a little bit of Particle Physics A Graphic Guide by Tom Whyntie and Oliver Pugh. The design is closer to a montage than a drawn graphic novel. It mixes text, speech bubbles, photographs and images in a unique way. I enjoy reading the Graphic Guide series. They are well written and easy to understand.
I also read some more of The Atlas of Happiness. Each chapter is a concept about happiness from a different country. I read about Saudade from Brazil and Xingfu from China.
I also read some more of History of Libraries in the Western World. I was reading about special libraries in Europe.
I checked the displays and the gift books.
I spent some time working on shifting books in the mysteries.
I checked the schedules in ADP for the people who report to me.
I put in some orders for new books.
I spent some time working on flyers and programming.
