Just wanted to share…
Most of my hobbies and interests have come from looking for things for my children to do. If we had not started using the Charlotte Mason method, I would still be hobbyless 🙂
Now I enjoy art, painting, nature studies (love how much this has influenced my life), knitting, gardening, and reading!
What a blessing homeschooling the CM way has been for me!
When I finish CM’s series, I’d like to begin a classic or possibly a Lamplighter book. There are a few great suggestions for classics on this post already. Anyone have more favorite classics to add?
Well, I have noticed a lot people are reading Jane Eyre this year – I guess because of the new movie that came out (haven’t seen it though). My husband and I decided to read it – we actually got a free download from librivox and listened to it on our ipods. He has finished it and I am about half way through.
I would suggest it to anyone that is looking for a classic to read, it is an interesting book, not too long, and there is quite a bit of online discussion going on if you are interested in taking part or just reading/listening to what others think about the book.
My husband and I are in the landscaping business so we get a lot of time to listen to audiobooks with our ipods when we are at work – he listened to Bleak House by Charles Dickens a while back – it is LONG – and enjoyed it alot. I have enjoyed Dickens on audio because a lot of the books were written to appear serially in magazines so they kind of have episodes. Most recently I listened to Great Expectations – what a wonderful book! So much better than I remember from jr high english class. Another classic I listened to recently from librivox is Huckleberry Finn. I hadn’t read it for years and I found it very intense.
