Happy Bloomsday to everyone this June 16th, and what would then be 1904.

For those who do not know what I am talking about, you may find info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomsday

Has anyone here read Ulysses, or tried to?

I have been reading it over a year now via public domain internet and a podcast that a friend of mine does.

It is a lovely text, just very, very daunting.

Just yesterday I wondered to myself what the date was, that it must be almost Bloomsday.

I took a seminar on Ulysses maybe 5 years ago. That was the second time I read it through cover-to-cover; the first time was 9 or 10 years ago. The last time I read it, I interspersed its chapters with those of The Odyssey.

I get reminded of these sort of dates because of the Writer's Almanac as recited by Garrison Keilor.
