Daily Thoughts 03/18/2020

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

The Mount Vernon Public Library is now closed.

We have been asked to shelter in place.

I read some more of The Art of Memory.  I am reading about Ramism which is a style of memory focused on repetition and orderliness.

I also read some more of What We Talk About When We Talk About Books.  I am reading about how many people do not buy books to keep, but to share and sell to the next reader.
