Anyone know Ancient Greek? Lol trying to memorize the alphabet so I can figure out 1st declension and feeling a little annoyed.

I am enjoying this audio book that I started on the bus this morning though. Very interesting and well written.

llwheeler Ancient Greek and Latin here! 🙂 #classicistsofLitsy I know what you mean - the first couple weeks are hard but you got this! 2mo
brilliantglow @llwheeler ahhhhh lol I have slated Latin for next year with advanced ancient Greek. I'm really enjoying learning it and can remember the letter names in order but to actually write them out in upper and lower is proving a struggle for me currently. 2mo
llwheeler @brilliantglow Have fun with it! It takes some practice, for sure. Sounds like you have already made good progress! 2mo
brilliantglow @llwheeler thank you! I think I'm getting there. Just slower than I like. 🙂 2mo

Well finishing this #audiobook fit in perfectly with #MayMadness @Clwojick @TheReadingMermaid @RadicalReader
Just started watching TV adaptation & i hate it. Well, hate's a strong word but it's def a slog. Books however are great! I think I enjoyed this one more than the 1st & love the features of an epic/ hero story #classicistsoflitsy
TW: rape scene- guess it seemed "fitting" given general story line but hard to listen to/ unexpected for me

DannyHattan I‘ve not read any of the books but love the TV Series 🤦🏻‍♂️😂😂 6mo
Andrea4 @DannyHattan Haha sorry! Maybe if I didn't know the books, I'd like the series...or maybe it will get better??? Lots of people have the reverse opinion of mine so, you know, to each their own! 6mo

Started this #audiobook yesterday walking and in the first 2 min had to hold back a peal of laughter as the difference between a bunny and hare was explained; oh back to first year of the PhD and Xenophon's treatise on hunting 🤦‍♀️🤣
At least I can be certain of identifying a hare should I ever come across one!

GrilledCheeseSamurai Fun books! I love the tv series too. 🤗 7mo
Andrea4 @GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm excited to be able to watch the series after this! 7mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @Andrea4 it strays from the books a bit at times...but enough of the source material is still there that it's okay by me. It's also a little 'teeny' feeling but matures as the series goes. I mean...i guess the books are like that as well. 🤷‍♂️ 7mo
Andrea4 @GrilledCheeseSamurai yea, I figured as much but the books are a bit teeny too and sometimes, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!! 7mo

Finally finished! Only took me six months...
Great book and an interesting look into the mind of a great orator.
Also painted my nails for the first time in ages, feeling more like myself again

If at any time in your life you've thought "did the ancients ever find fossils?" this is the perfect book. Already I'm hooked on it and I've only just started. I didn't know such a book even existed!

Genuinely enjoyed this. I'll admit that I went into it thinking it'd be a load of old nonsense (to use my nan's phrase) but no, this is great. I'd recommend it

Completely forgot to post about this, oops! I finished Vol 1 Pt 2, and now I'm on Vol 2 Pt 1. There's 19 books in this collection, and I'll be reading them all. At some point I'm hoping that I'll remember what one I'm reading without looking it up.

This is not the tagged book, but you try finding what volume and part it is XD

Woohoo I'm done! Full of jargon I had to keep looking up, but otherwise an interesting book on the geological formation and prehistory of the area
