In October, we posted an event asking other bloggers to join us in creating virtual commonplace books and recording their reading. The end event post was supposed to go live yesterday, but unfortunately a few things came up and I’m a day late. My apologies to everyone waiting to see the end results! Below is the commonplace book page I created. If you also created a page, please let us know in comments, so we can stop by!
Explanation: There are a lot of different ways to create commonplace books. You can record quotes on a specific topic or theme, quotes that seem useful, or just any quotes that catch your attention. I chose the final method and simply recorded passages that I found interesting from all the things I’ve read in the past month. The left column has some quotes from the novels I read, while the right column includes passages from some of the reading I’ve been doing for coursework.
