September ROC Recap October 1, 2010

Posted by Heather J in Reading and Reviewing Classics.

The first month of the Really Old Classics Challenge ended yesterday and here’s what we know:

  • Bev @ My Reader’s Block is making excellent progress!  She read Dante’s Diving Comedy, both the Hell and Purgatory sections.  She enjoyed Hell better than Purgatory (it IS a bit funny to write that!) but considers both books to be poetically beautiful.
  • Shelley @ Book Clutter is considering starting Virgil’s The Aeneid in October, but so far she’s just flipped through the pages.
  • Heather @ Age 30+ … A Lifetime of Books (me) started reading The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli but only got through the preface so far.  I’ve read this before and am wondering if I’ll enjoy it as much this time around.

This may not seem like great progress but considering that there are three more months in this challenge and that the goal is to read just one ROC, I’d say we’re off to a pretty good start!
