In case you’ve been watching too much Honey Boo Boo Child and have missed all the super important goings on around here, I started an online book club and it officially begins today! We are reading classics in (mostly) chronological order and are starting with The Odyssey. I’ll be posting the rest of this years’ reading list soon but I’ve been agonizing over whether we should make it a 2 or 3 or 4 year reading list. If we make it just one year and then love it and want to keep reading, we’ll mess up our chronological order scheme. But who among us is ready to make a four year reading commitment? See my dilemma? I’ll continue to ponder it and would love your input in the comments section along with any books you think should definitely be the the short list of classics book club.
Here’s what I have so far for this year::
December—-Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar
March—Augustine’s City of God
May—-Dante’s Divine Comedy
We’ll take a summer break and refuel for the next semester!
I’ve also started a forum on this blog to help us in our discussions so go on over there and register and you’ll be O-fficially signed up to read with us. I made a video for you because I
am the queen of Dorkville wanted to give you some encouragement and reading tips. We will discuss the first 12 books of The Odyssey on Friday, Sept.14th and then the last 12 books on Friday, Sept. 28th. Most of you have started reading already, which is wonderful!, but it’s not too late to join us!
To correct myself in the video, xenia is spelled Xenia, not Zenia.
And sorry if I ramble. I don’t think video blogging is one of my spiritual gifts.
Hope you have a great holiday weekend:)))
