I was in what seems to be a similar state of mind a little over 2 months ago over the iLiad. Harry said to me pretty much what he said to you and I took his advice. I have not regretted for a moment.
The reader goes all over with me. It has changed not only how much I read but what I read. I am off to the mountains in a few hours. It is pouring with rain over most of the country but so what, I will have a library with me
