I have just finished reading the next two chapters of "Prime Obsession" (chapters 5 & 6). Sunday mornings are a particularly refreshing time. The day has the cultural connotation of a day off, of an opportunity to relax and remove oneself from the demands of work. What better way than to play with some mathematics.
I have been reading for almost an hour (I began at about 6:15) and will use this value as as the start of this session. Now to think about making some notes. I want to attend to two different matters. One is the actual mathematics, which is presented in the oddnumbered chapters and the other is the historical context, which is in the oddnumbered chapters.
I have copied a Mathematics timeline web page that I began at the beginning of the year while building another web site, and will use this from now on while developing this web site.
8:25 am I have finished editing the mathematics timeline for this web site. I have yet to begin my actual notes for the two chapters. But first we will go for a morning walk and get some much needed exercise.
Total elapsed time: 2 hr 10 min.
Review
I have begun reading "Prime Obsession" by John Derbyshire. I hope to stay with this book until the end and then return to Michael Spivak's "Calculus". 
I am about to create a schematic diagram of the content to this point.

This was a genuinely enjoyable activity. It is comforting to see how the various important ideas come together to yield the Prime Number Theorem. I have yet to begin my planned notes for today!
