Read from June 15 to 26, 2011 — I own a copy

This is terrible. Beowulf is the most famous epic poem ever. I remember learning about it when I was at school, and thinking how I'd like to read it one day. I never have (too many books, too little time), and I still say (despite listing this on here as "Read") I haven't. BECAUSE, like The Art of War, this is impossible to read on an e-reader.

So, to be honest to the experience, I have to give this one star only. This feels like a betrayal. In fact, it feels so bad that I am, at this very minute, logging into my local library to see if they've got a decent copy to read properly.

Several copies, not all currently available (it's good to see that others are reading this great classic). I shall visit the library tomorrow.
