Really? You mean, read through both the entire Iliad and Odyssey in a couple years? That's a better prospect than I imagined.
I'm just going to say that I think that's way overly optimistic. We've had a lot of groups here on textkit work through Pharr. The typical schedule is one chapter a week (two a week very early on, but breaks needed here and there for holidays, so it averaged out). Maybe we weren't putting quite six hours a week in, but close to that (especially during the first year or so when there are still English->Greek exercises). Doing that schedule gets you through Pharr, and book 1 of the Iliad, in about a year and a half. And believe me, after Pharr it's still very
slow-going. Some of the other Pharrists might have opinions on this as well.
