Welcome to PBL Book Lists
PBL Principle 7 is: All people are born with a desire to learn.  Charlotte Mason explains that “knowledge is to the mind what food is to the body”.  We avoid “junk knowledge” as we would “junk food”.  We strive to use the best sources from the best minds to feed ourselves (see principle 1. above.)  TJEd calls these sources “classics”  (also the principle of “Simplicity, not complexity”) and Charlotte Mason calls them “living books and ideas”.  We also study the art of mentoring (being a master teacher).  These principles help to raise a generation of great thinkers and leaders.

For this reason we gather lists of “best books”… at least in someone’s opinion! We believe these to be a valuable resource for “best book” seekers and welcome additions from YOU.  (See book picks challenge.)

We interface with an online resource called “goodreads”.  We hope you will utilize this powerful tool in your family to keep track of books you have read, are reading and want to read.  It is a great place to write book reviews for other PBL member and friends to read!

This is based on a story by Leo Tolstoy. It asks… When is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do?
