What Drives Us Mad

We are a group of women trying to attain the Classical Education we never had by reading through the book list in Susan Wise Bauer’s Well-Educated Mind.  She suggests following a chronological reading pattern that begins with fiction, then moves through autobiography, history, drama, and poetry.

We read, we journal, we fold corners and jot in margins, and then we discuss it all here.  Well, sometimes we discuss, and sometimes we just give proof of our madness. Grab your books, pencils, and withered brains and join in the conversation.  We might be at this for awhile.

    Hoorah! We’re so excited to learn of another DIY Master’s student! Please feel free to add our blog to your rolls, and we’ll be happy to do the same for yours. I can’t wait to go read about your take on DQ. It seems like we spent a lot of quality time with he and Sancho. I may be the only person to ever cry at the end of that novel.
