Daily Thoughts 01/30/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Dead Astronauts.  It took me several chapters to get a solid idea of what is happening in the story.  There are a lot of very abstract descriptions of events.  The story includes a lot of back story for the three main characters and their adversaries.

I also read some more of The Periodic Table A Visual Guide to the Elements.  I have read up to Element 26, FE or iron.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I spent some time checking biography books in the mezzanine.

I also made some notes for books to be changed to mezzanine.

I looked through the latest copy of the New York Times Book Review and the Times Literary Supplement.

I put out the latest copy of Bookpage.

I placed a hold on the book, A World Without Work, Technology, Automation, and How We Should Respond by Daniel Susskind.
