So, several weeks ago on Twitter, Jill, Trisha, and I were discussing readalongs and I wondered if they might be interested in reading The Odyssey with me. Sure sure they said but little planning has been done since then. :-/ I blame those damn Karamazov brothers...can I just blame everything this year on them?
Anyway, we talked about an Odyssey readalong in November--before the holidays start getting too hectic. The book (errr, Epic Poem) is 24 books--if we read 6 books a week we could finish right before December.
What do you think? Would you be interested? I'm not sure how much 6 books a week really is--I think in my copy it's about 100-140 pages of verse. How long would that take to read? It's been a long time since I've read epic poetry...
Let me know! If there's more than just me interested, then I'll put up a "real" post with sign up next week.
Yay for Friday! Any exciting weekend plans for you? (I'll be at the Texas Book Fest tomorrow!)
