I am a book girl! I love libraries and book stores. I firmly believe that there is no such thing as too many books. Friends regularly post book related memes on my facebook page. However, over the years, I’ve let too much technology creep into my life. Hours I used to spend reading have been spent with facebook and netflix. I can almost feel my brain becoming flabby. So this school year, I decided to do something about it.
We’ve been using Veritas Press’s self-paced Omnibus courses in our homeschool for the past two years. It is a classical curriculum that meets all of my educational goals for our homeschool very nicely! This year, I decided to read the book list ahead of my son so that we could fully discuss the literature. I started filling pages with quotes from the books. Quotes that touched me, spoke to me, or warned me. The “Blogging Through Omnibus III” series was born. I’ll still be posting recipes and photography. My hope is that reading more will cause me to write more.
I hope you’ll join me on this endeavor. There’s beauty to be observed in “The Great Conversation!”
