Mr. Culbreath posts about the new book from fellow-blogger The Deliberate Agrarian. I have not read the book but did order the catalog which carries the book...Cumberland Books.

The catalog itself is quite interesting, with some great classic selections (for instance M. Adler's "How to Read a Book" and CS Lewis "Mere Christianity"), with long commentary on various subject including homeschooling and agrarianism. I have been planning to post something on it for sometime-this is just a reminder to self.

We are a not-for-profit educational organization, founded by Mortimer Adler and we are Encyclopaedia Britannica’s exclusive agent for these programs.

We have recently made an exciting discovery--three years after writing the wonderfully expanded third edition of How to Read a Book, Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren made a series of thirteen 14-minute videos on the art of reading. The videos were produced by Encyclopaedia Britannica. For reasons unknown, sometime after their original publication, these videos were lost and are now available.

For those of you who teach, this is great for the classroom.

I cannot over exaggerate how instructive these programs are--we are so sure that you will agree, if you are not completely satisfied, we will refund your donation.
