You can probably tell from the title, there hasn't been a great deal of reading going on! But, there has been a lot of thinking, and it is only twenty to eight in the evening here, so after this post I'm about to sit back with a hot drink and read as much of Discipline and Punish as I can. Incidently, I did end up reading it before I went to sleep, and I did have a nightmare. So be warned, if you decide to read it: it is not a bed time book!
Alpha (A) - Α αThe word at the bottom is Oιδιπoυς - Oidipous, or Odepius. As I say, I wrote it from memory, and the Greek T looks more like a G, but that is because I did it the way I write my English 'T's. I did write a few other words, but not from memory so I'll spare you those!
Beta (B) - Β β
Gamma (G) - Γ γ
Delta (D) - Δ δ
Epsilon (E) - Ε ε
Iota (I) - Ι ι
Kappa (K) - Κ κ
Omicron (O) - Ο ο
Pi (P) - Π π
Sigma (S) - Σ ς
Tau (T) Τ τ
Upsilon (U) - Υ υ
Finally, novels... I've been meaning to re-write my NaNoWriMo novel from November, and these good intentions have got me precisely nowhere. However, I have come across this - Camp NaNoWriMo. I'm thinking about it. It's not until June, so... I'm thinking about it. It might not be the right thing for me, in that I might be left more crappy words in the rush to finish, however it will give me a little motivation. This novel does need thinking about. It would be a waste to let it go. But it does need thought, and proper "sitting down with paper and a pen" thought.
So that's what is happening today. I'm going to reluctantly return to Discipline and Punish. I would love to finish it tonight, but Foucault is not one to be rushed.
Hope everyone else is doing a lot better with their read-a-thon!
Edited to add: Just finished Discipline and Punish, which is my second book this week so far. Next up: torn between Nicholas Nickleby and Confessions of an Opium Eater.
