Ended before it began
Even before it has begun, my studying verve has hit a snag. My archaeology class has been cancelled due to a lack of interest. They're redoing the course in October, so it will go smack dab in the middle of Nanowrimo, National Novel Writing Month for the uninitiated. I tried juggling the class and Nano my first year and saw a distinct drop in quality. Rather than go through that again, I opted for the full refund, rather than transfer to that session.
All is not totally lost, however.
Mandelei has started an online reading group of Homer's The Iliad on her blog. I already have the Fagles edition, but I may look at the other options at the bookstore.
