Ancient May-hem Reading Challenge


My friend Sammy over at All Things Literary is running a reading challenge this month that I’m looking forward to taking part in: the Ancient May-hem Reading Challenge. Throughout the month of May I will be trying to read some of the writings of the Ancient Greek and Romans. At the moment I’m going to try and get through Appian’s The Civil Wars and Plutarch’s The Makers of Rome. If I have the time I’d like to also read Homer’s The Iliad and The Odyssey, but for now I’ll just try for the first two.

If you’re interested in participating you should check out this post to read the rules and sign up. Everyone that participates goes in the running to win a Classics-related book of your choosing from All Things Literary. If you’re looking to challenge yourself you should definitely join me in giving this a go.

    I’m so glad to hear you’re doing this challenge, Sam! And mmm, your choices sound great–especially the Plutarch! 😀

    • lol, I’m already kind of wishing I’d just gone for the Homer. At least I can read that easily. 😛 But I will persevere! 😉
