Daily Thoughts 02/28/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading Imagined Life A Speculative Scientific Journey Among the Exoplanets In Search of Intelligent Aliens, Ice Creatures and Supergravity Animals by James Trefil and Michael Summers.
I like Exoplanet Travel Bureau Posters that came from NASA that they mention in the book.

I also finished reading A World Without Work Technology, Automation, and How We Should Respond by Daniel Susskind.  It is a solid overview of what might happen in the future as automation reduces the amount of available work for people.  The last sections cover Universal Basic Income and a future where work does not determine the primary purpose in life.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

We received flyers for the Westchester 2020 Census.

I checked the biography books in the mezzanine.  I also spent some time checking books from the biography to bring down to the mezzanine.

I worked on an order of new books.

I checked the New York Times and the Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.

I spent some time working on programs.

I also spent some time working on grants.
