The Well-Educated Mind : A guide to the classical education you never had

 
I particularly like the history books by Susan Wise Bauer, as they are fantastic introductions to broad swaths of history.
 
My blog functions in some way as a journal or “commonplace book.” As I learned from this book, a commonplace book is like a scrapbook, essentially an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts learned over time.
 
Such as these facts:
 
The trivium of reading:
– grammar (put down building blocks; create an understanding of the book)
– logic (exercise analytical skills after foundation has been set; decide whether information is correct or incorrect, and make connections between cause and effect, historical events, scientific phenomena, words, and their meaning)
– rhetoric (express opinion in speech and writing)
