2YRC: The First Post, of the First Day.

I am officially declaring this day, October 1st 2010, the first day of the 2 Year Reading Challenge. By October 1st 2012, I'm going to have to have read every book and short story on the list found here.

I've already started, and I'm almost done with book 3 of The Iliad. I have to admit, I did end up skimming the last part of book 2, because long lists of captains and the number of ships they command are not quite my thing.

Other than that, the story is pretty compelling so far. It took me some time to get into it, simply because the format and style is so different from what I'm used to. Now that I've figured out the rhythm of the story, though, it's hard to put down.
