Hey, I recently came across your website. I thought it great.
I’m currently 25-years-old and missed out a lot of education (deep reading, pronunciation, logic, etc). I was just wondering if you had any tips for an adult like myself who wishes to correct the huge gaps in his education?
Just a few short suggestions:
1. Start your logic study with The Fallacy Detective. From there, go to more difficult logic books. You can do a search on our site for titles.
2. Make a list of important books to read and start reading, spending an hour a day at this. Take notes as you read and keep a notebook with all your notes.
3. Write something every day — one page. Journal, letters, essays.
4. Reduce the time you spend looking at a screen.

The Well-Educated Mind by Susan Wise Bauer
in the same genre of filling the gaps
true LIFE wisdom in here; shud be read, pondered & memorized daily, ideally first b4 any other study
…and do not fall into spelling like most people text nowadays or you will start spelling incorrectly even when you are not texting (see example above in Helene’s comment). 🙂 She had a good comment, nevertheless.
