A few years ago I started reading The Iliad and the Odyssey, the classic Epic Greek poem written by Homer. It pretty much became my in-between book, the book that I would read close to the end of the month when I didn’t want to start a new book. I’m not a fan of starting a book in one month and finishing it in another month, even though I have done it in the past, it is something that I now try to avoid.
Reading the Iliad and the Odyssey as my in-between book stopped working for me, so I removed it from my Goodreads and re-added it when I removed it, I had read 366 total pages. It is not the biggest book clocking in at 731 pages, but it is also not the easiest book to read.
So, I am dedicating the month of April to reading The Iliad and the Odyssey, there’s a chance that I will finish it before the end of the month, which I am hoping for. I am also a one book at a time reader, so I won’t’ be reading any other novels during the month of April.

Good luck, Ashley!
Whew! Get it! I remember reading bits of each during high school, but I never committed myself to the whole thing. It will be really interesting to hear your thoughts upon finishing it.
I think it’s good that I’ve already read some of it and have a general sense of what the story is about but I’m excited to read the whole thing.
I’d have to agree. It’s been so long since I read the snippets we were required to read in high school, but I bet it would feel very familiar if I ever picked it up.
