The pleasure of finding things

I am a big fan of public libraries. They not only contain vast amounts of information and entertainment in books, videos, and other media, but they also have librarians to help you quench your thirst for knowledge.

Recently at a library book sale I found volume 2 of Feynman Lectures On Physics.

Richard Feynman was a Nobel Prize winning physicist who was as good as a showman as he was a scientist.

I found Paul A. Kaminskas’ copy actually. Along with some homework. Maybe your teacher will let you turn it in for late credit?

Paul, if you have volumes 1 & 3, I would love to purchase those too. Or you can donate them to the library, so I can buy it from them and continue supporting my library.

 

Swearing Cures Insomnia

I have fond memories of my dad reading stories from Childcraft Encyclopedias before I went to bed.  I am not sure it helped me sleep, but it did cement my love for reading encyclopedias.  I likely would have slept better if there was more swearing like in Adam Mansbach’s book, Go The F**K To Sleep.

If you are too lazy to read it to your child, you can always have Samuel L. Jackson read it to them.  The only way to improve this book is to have Morgan Freeman read it. The audio book is available for free from Audible.  It can also be viewed on YouTube.
