Reading Greek right before bed has two benefits. First, it ensures that I keep up with the language and not let that skill disappear. Second, it’s the perfect evening activity to make a person sleepy! I’ve heard that good bedtime reading is something that tires the brain, like a crossword puzzle or Sudoku. After reading Greek, I usually do some short breathing and meditation exercises. The combination of these two things has really done wonders to help me get to all asleep at night.
If you haven’t guessed by the photo, this is my Greek New Testament. I tend to mark it up quite a bit. For those of you who have studied Greek New Testament, you will notice that I have a helper text that defines the more difficult terms from each page.
