Summer Reading List

It's much easier to just photograph
 them, rather than list titles and authors.
I'm about 1/3 of the way through the pile of books next to our bed. Due to poor planning, I've still got quite a way to go. Instead of starting something new, I've picked up the Iliad(for the 6th time in as many years) and am really enjoying it.

I'm thinking about doing a long-term video project, where I recite (read) the Iliad, like Homer alleged did all those millennia ago. It'll be fun to collect the photographic imagery, video, audio editing, and all that jazz. The one piece that I see as daunting is the  chapter that lists the names of and amounts of warriors, ships, and their arms. It's tedious and I don't believe I've ever actually no skimmed that section.Ha.
