Start reading at “Book IX” from this link of the text.
Keep a reading log in your google folder.  Title your reading log “Odyssey reading log.”  The log must show the date, length of time, and pages read for each session you read.  Take notes when you read on ideas that you think are great so you can discuss in class, and take notes on ideas that are unclear so you can ask questions in class.imageshttp://www.theoi.com/Gigante/GigantePolyphemos.html
