2014 Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival Schedule

In honor of Charlotte Mason's birthday, today, here is the schedule for the upcoming year of CM Blog Carnivals!
I'm already looking forward to learning and sharing, are you??

This year, there will be one topic designated per month (always optional). All carnival editions hosted and posted during the corresponding month will fall under the same topic. In past years, many that prefer to follow the schedule simply weren't able to keep up with a new topic every two weeks. SO, for those folks, we're allowing for a whole month to meditate on each subject/chapter. We'll see how it goes, and if we like it, we'll keep it. If not, we can change it up*. :)

One more thing, this is really important... the schedule below mentions a bunch of reading selections and blogging topics which are 100% optional! You may blog about any of Miss Charlotte's favorite topics at any time and submit your posts to any CM Blog Carnival all year long! The list below is simply for those who find it helpful, would like to have a plan, or who enjoy communing and thinking along the same lines as others. Please always feel free to share what you are thinking or doing, whether 'officially on-topic' or not.

Go ahead and bookmark or print this post if you'd like to follow along!

Feel free to snag the CMBC logo to link from your blog's sidebar!

Subject to revision, please check the Schedule Page for changes and exact dates.

On a previous Carnival there was a post about how someone was able to read more books by using Charlotte's methods than one would think and I cannot remember who wrote that. Does anyone have any idea who that might have been or anything similar?
