Ready for some Really Old Classics?

It's time to blow the dust off those ancient scrolls and dig in to some Really Old Classics.  

This challenge is all about discovering the treasures of the ancient world.  "Really Old" in this case refers to anything written prior to 1600 AD, and the challenge is to read just ONE BOOK.  There are additional levels for the more ambitious out there, but how many other challenges can you say you've completed by reading just one book?! Not many, that's for sure.

Details about this year's challenge (which I'm co-hosting) and a place to sign-up can both be found at the 2010 Sign-Up page on the challenge blog. Be sure to start following the blog so you don't miss out on anything:  Happy ancient reading!

I was wondering if you guys would be doing this one again. My daughter is taking a Greek and Roman Lit class and I'm so wanting to read something with her. She has bought all sorts of ancient texts for it and is feeling a little overwhelmed. It will be fun to for me pick one to read along with her and for this challenge.

Suey - Yay! I'm glad to be of service. ;) What does your daughter have to read?

I can't wait to start.

Ryan - Thanks for co-hosting with me!

Now I need to find what I did with my copies of The Iliad and The Odyssey. I set them aside months ago in preparation for this challenge, but they've disappeared... :)

Heather J. said...

Michelle - Ooh, those are two of my favorites - I hope you can find them!
