In other news, I went to a favourite used bookstore of mine today (unintentionally!), and I spent a bit under $100 on fifteen books. About half of those were Classically related (well, directly--I bet I could relate ALL of them to Classical studies if I wanted to!). I really must acknowledge a booklust problem here. Eheu!
I've also discovered, much to my horror, that my earlier old-book allergy (well, the mites really, but still!) that developed this semester seems to be here to stay! That place had my skin on edge, and my eyes and nose itchy. It's quite pitiful. But nothing will deter me from my books! I'll just have to remember to take allergy medicines next time... I guess it's true when my history instructor told me I picked the wrong profession--allergic to the very things I love most! Vae! They never really warn you about this when you choose to be a Classics (or English) major...
Anyway, my ancient Greek history class starts next week. That will either mean fewer updates (because I know I'll be swamped) or more updates (because I'll have more to talk about). My Greek history is abysmal, so I'm glad to finally be taking this class!
For now, though, I am reading Charlotte Brontë's Villette and should probably finish it tonight. It's amusing me, because I'm fairly certain it's filled with more Classical allusions than any of her other books.
