Theory of Everything

In our downsizing kick, I sold most of my books last year, and did another round several months ago.  I had made far too many well-intentioned purchases that would eventually just end up lingering on the shelf, unread. 

But I’ve been reading a lot lately, more now than ever.  I’m lucky to work within walking-distance of the Boston Public Library. I started with safe genres, like jewelry and simplifying.  And then, a happy accident a few months ago: the internet was broken at work, so I did the work I could do without a computer and was dismissed after only an hour.  I spent the next few hours wandering the stacks.  And now my new pet topic is string theory. For laymen, of course, so a lot of Michio Kaku.

What are your favorite call numbers? J

The above thought is smart and doesn’t require any further addition. It’s perfect thought from my side.
