NEW feature: the chorea scriptorum

We now have four occasional and recurring featured posts here at CommonPlaces:

  1. commonplaces, where I provide a list of sometimes related new books here where I serve as a theological librarian,
  2. book provenance,
  3. random quotes from stacks,
  4. and now chorea scriptorum, a latin phrase which, roughly translated, means “writer’s cramp.”

Given my newly self-imposed deadlines for research and writing over the next few months, I thought I would record the effects of my swotting and write summaries, reviews, and whatever else I may find helpful from the books I am reading or which cross my desk. I will try to make recommendations that would be helpful to libraries discerning the appropriateness of a book for their collections.
