This is my digital commonplace book. These types of book were common in the Middle Ages. Such books were essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: medical recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas. Commonplaces were used by readers, writers, students, and scholars as an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts they had learned.
Each commonplace book was unique to its creator’s particular interests. My interests tend to be eclectic so you are bound to find just about anything here from a random quote without comment to a rough draft of a larger piece that will end up on my personal blog, Reader Writer Runner.
