This podcast episode.  It’s a great podcast any way…but this episode?  WOW.  And of course, read by one of the great actresses of our time…

– Locals (and book lovers)…have you heard of this?  How heartbreaking! First editions of Isaac Newton AND Adam Smith?

Among the missing books is a first edition of Isaac Newton’s “Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica” from London, dated 1687. Mr. Vinson noted that another copy of this book sold for $3.7 million in 2016 at a Christie’s auction in New York City.

Also gone is a first edition of Adam Smith’s book “The Wealth of Nations,” which, Mr. Vinson said, would be worth $150,000.

Another article pointing to the acceptance of all types of students.

– I think it would be really fun to go to each of these places mentioned in Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown article (written by a local).

Have a great weekend!  Sleep a little longer (for your body), and read a little more (for your mind).
