What is Timeline of Classics?

After spending the majority of three decades in a classroom, I’ve stored up priceless memories, useful teaching methods, and countless bulging book cases.

I’d like to share a bit of that resourcefulness with you!

The purpose of my website is to help anyone be able to enjoy literature, connect with history, and think deeply about the good and great books.

So whether you’re a book nerd, a teaching parent, a classical educator, or all of the above, you’ve come to the right place!

Books are meant to be enjoyed.

Wouldn’t you like to create lasting memories around books?

Book choices are endless.

Wouldn’t you like to spend more time reading and less time searching for the all-time great books?

 Classics are too hard to read and comprehend…or are they?

The history of the world is told through books.

Wouldn’t you like to learn/teach history using classic literature?

Even those of us without a formal literary education can read, enjoy, and teach the good and great books.

So, if you’re a book junkie like me, you’ve come to the right place!
