Ultimate [Last!] British Literature Post (Book List!)

What's Cookin'?

Oldest dd made pizzas for dinner last (thank you!!!).  The interesting thing is that she used our emergency biscuit recipe for the pizza crust.  It was really good.  One was cheese and the other had a bit of pre-cooked ground beef that I was saving for soup with sauteed onion and bell pepper.

Tonight:  Tortilla soup with homemade tortilla chips.

Tomorrow:  Simple beans and rice with cornbread.

What's Green?

Here is an organic cotton mattress without the harsh flame retardant chemicals that cause issues with many people.  The pure cotton ones require a doctor's prescription but these with the wool cover don't.  This would be my dream mattress (literally!).

What's Schoolin'?

Okay, this should really be the last post about British Literature!  My posts on British Literature are posted here, here, here, here, here, and here (vaguely on this one that was actually first in the order).  Today: here is the link for a document in pdf form if you'd like to print it for reference.  It's simply the book list that goes along with British Literature (Encouraging Thoughtful Christians to Be World Changers). I need to have it on hand for a quick reference to check out books from the library or to check whenever I see a book on sale or something.

Since Catholic authors were not well represented I added some at the end of the book list along with some links for those studies.

I hope some of you find it useful in your home school planning.

Please let me know if the link isn't working - sometimes that happens with googledocs.

In summary, we'll be using British Literature by Stobaugh as our spine along with the below titles that are used in the curriculum (shorter works are included in the textbook).  I'm also adding English Literature (Barron's Ez-101 Study Keys) as needed since it is recommended for the CLEP preparation that I mentioned on THIS post.  In addition, we'll be reading Belloc, Chesterton, Wilde, and Shaw.  The hardest part will be choosing from Belloc and Chesterton!

Below are the books:

Whew!  That's a lot of reading!  I don't plan on covering it in one year, though.  We'll also be studying American Literature and World Literature.  Gee... I've got some planning to do :)
