Scholars, readers, and writers have kept commonplace books for centuries to record and remember interesting facts, favorite book passages, and relevant ideas. Keepers of commonplace books, including John Milton, Francis Bacon, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau, wrote down everything from scientific observations and mathematical calculations to poems and prayers.
My new blog, Catholic Commonplace Book, is online version of a commonplace book will focus mainly on quotations, meditations, and prayers from a wide variety of Catholic sources, both ancient and modern. I will add a new "entry" each day, so readers will always have something fresh to discover and ponder. The Catholic Scholar blog will also remain active. I'm having too much fun with it to quit now!
Please visit Catholic Commonplace Book, read, enjoy, and feel free to comment.
