Greek on the train

This morning I decided to bring my Greek New Testament on the train. The copy I decided to bring is the Utriusque Testamenti, which is the Greek New Testament (Nestle-Aland 27) bound with the Hebrew Bible (BHS). Note to self: "it's too big; bring a smaller one next time." I'll probably bring the Zondervan Reader's Greek for ease of vocabulary lookups.

I am setting out to read the Gospel of Luke. Being a bit rusty the reading was slow going, but I am already picking up the pace. It's been a while since I read Greek on the train, so I will have to get used to the sideways glances of my neighbors (and occasional outright stares). Wish me luck.
