I've been trying to work my way through The Well-Educated Mind by myself for way too long.
Not long ago, I discovered A Classic Case Of Madness -- a witty, thoughtful blog in which three ladies contribute. They are on the same quest, just in a different spot: I started with the auto-biography list; they started with the novel list. I am finishing up Montaigne's Essays; they just finished Jane Eyre. I've decided to switch to the novel list and continue this journey with a little help from my new blog-friends, Christine, Christina and Jeanette.
Ever since Christina left a message on my blog inviting me to jump into the novels with them, I have been turning the idea over in my mind. I honestly can't think of a reason why I shouldn't join them. On the contrary, I can think of a few reasons why I should:
1. Group discussion will aid my comprehension.
2. I will move more quickly with others to keep me accountable.
3. Accountability will help me follow the three step system which is carefully described in WEM.
4. It will be a lot more fun!
What will this mean for Classical Quest?
