Daily Thoughts 03/16/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of What We Talk About When We Talk About Books.  The author Leah Price studies the history of books focusing on how they are used.

I read some more of The Art of Memory.  I am reading about Giordano Bruno and his memory system.  It is an mix of the occult and scientific practices.  Giordano Bruno was labeled as a heretic and burned at the stake.
