Welcome to my Commonplace Book. Below you will find my Book Summaries.
What is a Commonplace Book? I have been reading widely since I was a child and though the medium has changed I have always been intentional about maintaining a practice of recording my thoughts and passages or quotes I find meaningful. What you will find below results from my intention to be less of a passive reader and consumer. Enjoy.
