Greek Classics Challenge 2012


January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012

Announcing the Greek Classics Challenge for 2012!  Take a look at the roots of Western civilization and ponder the great questions of existence by reading some ancient Greek literature.

The rules:
  1. Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. It doesn't count if you start reading before the 1st! Join at any time during the year, but have your reviews in by December 31.
  2. Books may count towards other challenges.
  3. Write a sign-up post at your blog.  Choose a challenge level, but be modest; you can go up a level, but you can't go down. You may post a list of titles you plan to read, or choose as you go along.
  4. Link to your sign-up post (not your blog) at the linky, and grab my lovely owl badge to post on your blog.  Be sure to link back here, and tell your friends!
  5. Every month, I'll post about what I'm reading, you can link to your posts, and we can discuss.
  6. Read read read!
    There will be three challenge levels:
    • Sophocles: read 1-4 works
    • Hesiod: read 5-7 works
    • Herotodus: read 8-10 works
    • Thucydides: read 11+ works
    As the host, I'm aiming for 12 works, one per month.  Stay tuned to find out whether I've become too hubristic--perhaps I'll lose all glory by failing to meet my own challenge!
