The finer points of Ramadan as it is actually practiced have eluded me, it seems. Reading the 30 parts of the Quran happens at your local mosque or Islamic center, during Taraweeh, the nightly prayers which only come during Ramadan. Apparently, these recitations are exhausting, because one article I read mentioned that the imam is allowed to take a break at regular intervals.

So, just privately reading the Quran at home can be done anytime, and is not the formal Ramadan tradition, but wot the hey, I've wanted to read the whole book cover-for-cover for years. Good excuse :-)

I'll have to give myself a B- for this report.
