Part of the challenge in #thewelleducatedmind is to discuss or journal about how the books are in conversation with each other. Since my list started with two picaresque novels (one being the original), it was interesting to see how worldview gives meaning to the journey. I blogged about it at https://ecaseres.wordpress.com/2017/12/29/a-journey-with-a-purpose/

The first on the list and probably the one I‘m most proud of, because I read it in Spanish! (It took me 7 months.) Pictured with my fantastic Litographs T-shirt! #thewelleducatedmind #classics #greatbooks #spanishliterature

Have been working through the fiction list in The Well-Educated Mind, so I thought I would post thoughts on the ones I‘ve read so far. Enjoying having something to sharpen my literary skills on other than my curriculum! #thewelleducatedmind #classics #greatbooks

I did not know I would ❤️ this book. Jill Ker Conway was an intellect at a time when the world did not know how to treat an intellectual woman. That did not stop her. #AustalianLit #JillKerConway #biography #biographies #TheWellEducatedMind

First book in my journey with "The Well Educated Mind!" Diverged from the translations suggested by Susan Wise Bauer, but no regrets on my choice. I was surprised that the epic poem only took up a third of the book! #thewelleducatedmind #TWEM #atmidnightheawoke #gilgamesh #poetry
