A big January ahead in my reading

Product DetailsProduct DetailsI love January first; for a moment all things seem possible.  No mistakes made as yet though I am pretty certain that will change.

I am excited about another year of reading journeys.  Top of my list right now are two books that I will review further later but have just begun.  As you can see, they pair well together.  An Odyssey is a story of fathers and sons both present and from Greek epic.  The author teaches a class on the Odyssey at Bard College; his father asks to audit. ( Intriguing to me as I audit many classes too.)  It seems that this will be a good and thought provoking read about family relationships in fact and fiction..

So, you may all have heard about Emily Wilson’s translation of The Odyssey.  This is the first translation EVER by a woman. There is a great podcast on Slate as an introduction.  I am excited to have begun reading this beautiful and easy to follow edition of a great work.  It may be the start of educating myself on great literary works that I have missed.

Happy New Year and Happy Reading everyone.  I look forward to sharing more and to getting your feedback in 2018 .

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
