Beowulf on The Beach Reading Challenge

Of course you are!! And this summer Books on the Nightstand is hosting one! Books on the Nightstand is a wonderful podcast & blog hosted by Michael Kindness & Ann Kingman. They work together at Random House, but their podcast and blog are not affiliated with work, but with their long standing friendship and love of books! They don't just review books, they talk about books! And they always have great recommendations! I've talked about Ann & Michael before because Books on the Nightstand is my all time favorite podcast! On a recent podcast Michael talked about a wonderful new book by Jack Murnighan called Beowulf on The Beach: What to Love and What to Skip in Literature's 50 Greatest Hits. He calls it a funny & witty book. And from reviews I've read about the book it seems that Jack Murnighan has an enthusiasm for the classics that will have you wondering why you never grab one and put it in your beach bag! But on to the challenge....
