The Commonplace Book

Klaus, in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, keep a little notebook which he calls his Commonplace Book.  He uses this Commonplace Book as a place to keep little scraps of observations or information which he thinks are interesting or important during his adventures.  

If I were Klaus, I would fill my Commonplace Book with observations, and sentences or phrases that I make up, or words that I don't know but love the sound of.  This sounded like such a lovely idea to me that I decided to start one.  I have a little notebook with a coral-pink leather cover that fits into the palm of my hand.  I am going to try and take it with me where ever I go...  within reason... so that I can keep my spontaneous thoughts forever.  


  1. I like the word "sedition." Say it. I like how it tastes.

  2. For me it tastes like a fine blue-vein cheese. Mmmm. Thankyou very much for sharing it with me!
