Late Outta the Gate, plus plans

I haven't yet thrown together my post for this month's Homeschooling High School Carnival, on the topic of independence. Please go visit Leonie and all our friends at Living Without School for some good discussion on this theme. Maybe I'll get it together by the end of today . . .

(UPDATE:  Or maybe I won't)

Meanwhile . . .

What I Learned This Week . . .

. . . By Opening One Book remains open until this weekend. As reader Lucy points out, it's a great way to write about a book without having to write a whole review;  if, like  me, you have an ADD-ish approach to reading, and are constantly picking up and putting down things and gleaning snippets on your way to doing something else, this is the book talk for you. 

So if you've happened to pick something up and gleaned some fascinating snippet, do write about it, even if it seems too small or disjointed a snippet to bother with. If you've recently reread something -- the DHM has been revisiting Mortimer Adler, for example -- that counts, too.

Really I'm trying out this link gizmo for the first time, but after Holy Week and Easter I'd like to bring Opening One Book back as a regular feature:   book talk for those on the fly, or for those who, like me, tend to shy away from book clubs mostly because they can't ever seem to do what they're supposed to do when they're supposed to do it.

Anyway, I'll keep the list open till Saturday, then resume the carnival weekly after Easter. All comers welcome!
