Here is the rough reading list for our Classical Conversations cycle 2 year! I’m focusing on living books instead of textbooks again. It took about halfway through cycle 1 for me to realize I preferred them. But now that I know, I can better prepare ahead of time instead of scrambling for good titles at the last minute. Although we are a classical homeschooling family, the use of living books is a Charlotte Mason principle that I totally identify with. The information is more interesting for everyone, including me. There are many more books on this list compared to what we’ll actually read, but I like to have options.
