Beauty in the Word Preliminaries

Let's chat.

Things may be getting weird around here. It looks like I will be traveling out west....maybe. Also I am not sure how many people really will participate in the book club.

So here is what I will do for now. I will try to post one post a week on Beauty in the Word: Rethinking the Foundations of Education by Stratford Caldecott. Eventually I will set up a page to aggregate all the posts. I will be doing this like I did Norms and Nobility. Since I cannot commit to getting my posts up weekly, I am not going to commit to the Linky.  If you have a post on the book you would like to announce, you can add your link to my comments.  If possible I can also pull the link from the comment and add it to my post when I aggregate the posts on the Beauty in the Word Page. Does that make sense?  In other words this is going to be a low key book study.

Tomorrow I will blog about the Introduction. It really is a very short book.

Also if you know anything at all about the route from Tennessee to the Seattle, WA area, I would love to hear about it because it looks like I am going on an adventure.

How does that sound?

  1. Perfect, as I am committed to not committing to book clubs right now. And if you need a place to stay en route, say, Montana, we are right off of I90...

    Adventure?

  2. Oh my! That sounds like quite an adventure! I'm in Spokane, Cindy, right off I-90 in the very Eastern part of WA (about 4.5 hrs east of Seattle). If you need a place to stay or want some company for lunch on your way through, let me know! :) I hope the journey is for a happy reason?

  3. I think low key sounds lovely. I just got the book on kindle last night so I'm excited to start reading along.
    Can't wait to hear about your adventure! I'm going on my own little adventure this weekend to OK for my sister's wedding. It's the first time I'll have been away from my babies over night in years! Well, except for trips to the hospital to have more babies:)

  4. wish I could join the book study, but too many irons in the fire. I will however enjoy your thoughts...and if you come through St. Louis, I've got plenty of room ;)~ Jenny Savage

  5. Yahoo for adventures! I am currently on my own adventure. I have been away from my kids for 2 weeks as I have been helping my mom recover from heart surgery. I would like to participate in this book club but I might be a bit late. Once I get home on Thurs. I will have to search for the book for I have no idea where it is. I hope you have a delightful adventure.

  6. Yay for adventures! And thank you for low key book clubs right now. I'm in, but just by a toe :-)

  7. I'm seriously considering jumping in & reading this one. I definitely need some homeschooling inspiration! If you swing through Indianapolis, I would love to meet up for coffee.

  8. If you pass through Kansas City, I have recommendations for world class BBQ & fried chicken.

  9. Oooo! If for some reason you are going the I-80 to I-5 route, I would love to meet for coffee! You are such a lovely and helpful woman and I would love to meet you in person. But, I don't think that this would be the shortest route! :)

  10. Adventures sound good. Low key discussion sounds great, too. I likely won't comment much but am already reading along. I couldn't resist snatching up the Kindle version the moment you posted this study - well, after I said to myself: "REALLY?? I am still reading Desiring the Kingdom! I can't possibly do this!" That, however, was a momentary lapse and I realized I could not pass up the opportunity to read this along with you. I am already smitten with the book. Thanks for the impetus to jump in.

  11. Man, I am still committed to Desiring the Kingdom through April as the hostess, but I have this book and want to read it, too!

    Seattle?! I'm about 90 minutes off I-90. You'd be welcome to pit stop in the Tri-Cities, or I'd definitely drive up to Spokane or even over to Seattle. :) That's a long car trip! Is someone flying in from Japan? :)

  12. I don't have a blog but I am reading along and may comment if I can think of anything worthwhile to say. I actually ordered the book from Circe's bookstore since amazon said it would take 1-3 weeks for them to ship it. So far I am loving it and look forward to reading along!

  13. OK, so now I'm sad I'm not en route between TN and WA :(

    I'm trying to read it; I read the intro this morning and plan to post later today.
