5,000 Year Leap Colloquium

5,000 Year Leap Colloquium


“The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.” ~Mark Twain


We had the 5000 Year Leap for this month’s Colloquium. I read it a couple of months ago, but it is worth re-reading. I found this 5,000 Year Leap Study Guide with Group Questions online and while we didn’t have enough time to go over all the questions it is an excellent guide.
I love colloquium. The thoughts, opinions, and ideas that are passed around during this time by intelligent people is inspirational. I always leave uplifted. I have two colloquiums that I belong to. One I am head of and one I participate in. The first one has the following books outlined for us to read:

A House United by Peck

Les Miserables by Hugo

Laddie by Stratton-Porter

Jane Eyre by Bronte

The Future of the Internet by Zittrain

And the second group is reading the following:

October: John Adams by David McCullough **Meeting Oct. 6

November: The Real Thomas Jefferson by Andrew M. Allison

December: The Forgotten Carols by Michael McLean

January: The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

February: Dearest Friend: Letters from Abigail Adams

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot

My greatest dreams are to have a housekeeper; unlimited reading time; to travel wherever and whenever I want; to live in England, Italy and Hawaii; to go to Oxford University in the UK; to have all 11 children go on missions and to college; and to die peacefully in my sleep as an old, healthy woman. ♥
