The Odyssey  Homer
Translated by W.H.D. Rouse (1999)
Weight: 8.8 oz
Method of Disposal: Donating

Another thing I find embarrassing to admit is that I don't and never have liked The Odyssey.  The back of this book calls it "THE GREATEST TALE OF ALL TIME."  Don't get me wrong.  I have a healthy respect for it.  I recognize how important it is and how very old it is.  To be able to read something that was probably written in the 8th Century is awe-inspiring.  I just feel like having read it once is enough for me.  Now that I am out of school, I feel safe putting it in the donation box.
