This week I read through Beowulf. I tried reading it when I was in middle school but couldn't really get into it (I really didn't like reading if the subject matter wasn't computer related). But since I've been reading fiction recently I thought I'd give it another go, and I'm VERY glad I did.

This tale has such scope and epic details that I was completely enthralled from start to finish. It makes me want to consume scores of mead and wild game while gallivanting throughout the yard swinging my magical sword battling horrific creatures of ancient antiquity.

But alas....I will just read it again someday.


  1. Mead, to me, is one of those things that sounds really awesome but in reality it just gives you a headache.
    But I'm sure that swinging a magical sword is just as cool as sounds.
