How great was our book club tonight? It's 11:47 pm and I just had to write about it. We discussed Taming of the Shrew. It definitely got some mixed reviews and questions as to why it will be one of the books discussed at the Face to Face with Greatness seminar next month. I'm not sure I have an answer to that. I'll be sure to let you know when I get that answer. But it was great to hear everyone's opinions and input about it. Tiziana and Elisabeth had some great insight. I was amazed. We discussed mentors and inspiration and the worth and potential of a person. I love hearing different perspectives on the books we read. I think this group is just great and everyone certainly sets an example for me! Thank you!
Kim's presentation about how to inspire our children to get a great education was wonderful. Her example in itself is inspirational. She really showed how it is possible to inspire our children to get a first-class education while they are loving every minute of it and are begging for more! I can't wait to try out some of her ideas.
Today I received my "Britannica Great Books" series in the mail. I ordered them on Ebay for $209 and I'm so excited about them. They've been put up on my TJEd bookshelf as something to strive towards. I'll let you know how that goes. At least now I know I can read Shakespeare and enjoy it.
We've now read the three books that are going to be discussed at the FTF seminar and we are going to move onto the books that are part of the 5 Pillar Certification. You can find out more about that at http://www.gwc.edu/seminars/pillar_certification.php. I've determined that I've achieved my "Love of Learning" and now I want to be in Scholar Phase. I'm ready to put the hard work into my education. I'm ready to enjoy the journey.
