Although I have read different publications of The Odyssey, I have been reading certain parts of Robert Fagles translation of The Odyssey. I had also started reading a biography on the game show host Bill Cullen.

Right now simply the online textbook for my geology module, which is interactive. In what spare time I have I'm also re-reading the Ravenor omnibus by Dan Abnett, an old sci-fi favourite.

I was on this book which I've finished now, a few days ago and the one I'm on now is A Hidden Affair by Pam Jenoff.
Its a bit cat and mouse but hopefully some nice bits will emerge and there will be a happy ending..(cross fingers).
