It has been a long time since I’ve sent out an update, because it has been a good while since I updated anything! I spent several months away from home this year, and while I was traveling, I really didn’t have time to devote to this website. But things are finally settling down, and I’ve updated the main page, linked to a couple of new reviews, and shared a few fun things on the blog, about a friend’s new book and an interesting painting.
I also added a full-length article to the article page, which might offer some insight if you’ve pondered over the question of whether Charlotte Mason’s philosophy could be both progressive and classical in nature.
What’s next? Well, I’m planning a series of blog posts over the next few weeks about Comenius. I’ll share more about that very soon. I’m also planning to conduct a year-long book discussion of David Hick’s book Norms and Nobility. That discussion will take place on the forum at AmblesideOnline, beginning in December with the preface. Please feel free to read along or join in–it’s easy and free to become a member of the forum, and I welcome participation.
Thank you being patient while I’ve been busy elsewhere!

Karen, I have wanted to read this entire book for so long (I have read portions). Why on earth is it so expensive to purchase?
I know–so sorry! Don’t blame the author–the publication rights are held by an academic press, and they publish the book as a college textbook. Remember how overpriced those were/are? That’s the reason. And you never see one available second-hand, which does tell you that those who purchase it find it worth keeping!
Some of the participants in the upcoming study have taken note that Amazon usually offers a really good deal (maybe 30%?) off of one book of your choice on Black Friday, and they are deliberately planning to purchase then to take advantage of that offer. In which case, they will have it just in time for the discussion beginning in December.
Part of my reason for announcing the study so far in advance was to give folks a chance to save up, or make it a holiday gift. Consider it an investment in your own on-going education.
