"Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another. The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbor’s, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all." Voltaire
BookSegments is a blog that follows my adventure through my private library. As it contains about 800 books, the library, which is at home, covers a wide range of subjects, from fine art, to literary studies, to Texas history, to nature, to religion and social studies. The main focus will be non-fiction and poetry.
You may ask, "Why don't we just use a Cliff Notes for this purpose? It gives summaries of each chapter in a book." Well, to be honest, this blog is to increase my own knowledge- and hopefully yours, dear reader- in a more-wise way, and to give my personal 'take' on each book. It will also be interesting to see how some readings will affect the notes of future blog post segments.
My library does not cover a Dewey Decimal reference book of variety. But it is sufficient enough to provide a critical standpoint for my BookSegment notes. Enjoy your stay. It will be a ride- a personal journey- to a colorful intellectual horizon.
