Great Books

Hi! I'm Sami and this is my blog were I will be posting my thoughts on the Greek myths that we are going to be reading in class. I have read quite a few of the classic Greek myths before, it was a small obsession I had when I was younger. I am hoping that reading these this time around will be a different experience just being older and having a better understanding of life and if these myths are just old tales spoken to give entertainment or if there is a lesson or an idea hidden somewhere deep below.
