Now I’m on to The Iliad. So the three major reads of this year – that is, books I’ve read for the first time, properly and not just re-read – will have been The Odyssey, The Silmarillion and The Iliad. I have to stop this. Where next? The Old Testament? It’s all HEROES striding around MANFULLY and DECLAIMING at each other. Which is cool, but I think I need a nice, quiet family piece.
In other news – chikkins!
