Reading on the Net {02.08.15}

1000 Good Books: I've pinned this site but I actually have been perusing the lists here lately. One can never have too many good books options. Truly. And I just came across a post with a listing of Historical Fiction books, by date. I don't know if...

Reading List on the Net {02.06.15}

Our kids need hope, not fear. "When we moved to a small town a few years ago we asked our neighbor if the children could fish in his pond. He said he would love for them to but he was afraid they would drown and he would be liable...so, no they could...

Reading List on the Net {02.03.15}

The Art of Home-Making, by Margaret Sangster, 1898. A bit old-fashioned some may say but I think it's a lovely book. As it is well over 400 pages, I have not gotten very far. Sometimes I chuckle reading this- some can be found true, some not so much.

Reading List on the Net {01.31.15}

Neat...scientists can un-hardboil an egg. The egg whites, that is. To those who are not science-y (that would be me), it does look like it's just a nice trick. But it actually could have some more uses in the scientific realm than a trick to enterta...

Mini-Syllabus: Introduction to Viking Lore

Last year I wrote that I like to read books in coherent clumps. When I pick a book to read, I generally find myself seeking more like it, branching out step by step until I’ve completed what essentially becomes a … Continue reading →...

Reading List on the Net {01.27.15}

Audiobooks. What's wrong with listening rather than reading? This article makes good points. "Our mode of enjoying a book can alter the way we absorb its material...Suffice it to say that listening and reading provided very different cognitive experi...

Reading List on the Net {01.24.15}

This one is going to be quite short because I'm trying to be a little more focused. I do have a tendency to go hog-wild on things, then drop them all together. I'm also tired this afternoon and reading on the net doesn't work well when I'm tired. Th...

Reading List on the Net {01.22.15}

How could I not add "this one's by me" blog to my reading? There is only one post but I am truly looking forward to more. After all, I am a bit partial to the authoress of that blog... Some thoughts on Richard III. Unfortunately, I didn't pay enough...

Reading List on the Net {01.20.15}

Nature is good for the soul. Indeed! This post brought to mind what dd and I had recently read in Charlotte Mason's Volume 4, and wouldn't you know, Joy has quoted just what I was thinking! Blog planner. Like I need any more planners. Of any sort. I...

Reading List on the Net {01.14-18.15}

"And with any luck, the word will settle back into its original meaning, sans the unsolicited remix of dominant white culture." Perhaps I am too sheltered but I don't hear much of the culture words used. The word 'bae' apparently was a term used by b...

What We’ve Been Up To This Week- Books, Wrestling, & A Skunk

Can you believe another week is complete in January?  I have to admit, I’m kind of happy about it.  January is always a really long month for me and it’s even worse when it’s really cold.  Luckily our weather the last few days ha...

Carlos Ruiz Zafon quote

Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Today I leave you with this lovely Carlos Ruiz Zafon quote: No matter how busy you are this weekend... I hope you get the chance to relax with a great book. What book are you reading today? The...

Reading List on the Net {01/14/15}

Making or breaking a habit. I clicked on this because while cleaning up my papers the other day (hoarding is a habit I am trying to break), I found CM's steps to habit formation (most likely copy/pasted from the AO forum): 1. Commit ourselves to the...

Reading List on the Net {01/12/15}

Truth embedded in life.  As I've read the book Echoes of Eden and am reading The Stories We Tell, this was an interesting article on how we can see Truth in things where it isn't obvious. "Shawshank Redemption" was one of my favorite movies. It is...

Reading List on the Net {01/10/15}

Homeschooling grows...unfortunately I do think this means more legislation will be in the near future. Stolen creativity. "It’s what the mechanisms of what hundreds of thousands of shares, likes, flicks, clicks, skims, scrolls and swipes do to our...

Reading List on the Net {01.07.15}

Ah, internet. What schools can do beside standardized testing. I do think that assessments are necessary in education, but not the current standardized testing that takes place. Learning styles. I'm not sure I really buy the multiple intelligences...

2015 Reading List

One of my favorite end of the year activities is coming up with my reading list for the next year.  I almost always have way more books on my list than I can read, but it’s a great place to start (and when I’m at the library and not sure...
