    Oh my word 18 days??!?!! Scary! I'm in Mongolia at the moment (hehe better explain - doing mission work with my church - teaching english and running a youth group) but managed to find an internet cafe so I could catch up with the TSR gossip I bought the latin textbook off amazon. It's got a blue cover if that helps!! I just typed in the authors names and found it. It took a while to come so I'd get it soon. And I haven't read much to be honest just a few general books on Greece and Rome which they recommended plus The Oddessey and The Iliad. Need to read loads this week. See you soon eeek! x

    o my gosh completely forgot bout buyin books!!! ARGH! :eek:

    The reading list didn't specify that we read anything in particular, and for this reason, rather than buy the wrong books and waste money, I am planning to wait until freshers week and then buy the books I will need for whichever modules I choose to take. It is quite helpful to check out the module catalogue as sometimes it says which books are needed. eg. for the module on Elegiac poets the translation of Propertius required is Guy Lee.

    I agree with Soph, I got the short intro to classics, but havn't read anything else offthe reading list. All my other classics reading is what I had to do for Class civ @ A-level. I havn't read any proper history books because we did all literature (epic&plays)

    I don't think anyone needs to panic, my sister bought a load of books last year then didn't need them at all.

    I've dicided to do it the other way around, I'm taking the bare minimum of books, I can always get someone to bring others up if I need them! I don't think we'll really need books that they don't tell us to buy when we're there anyway. (I already have way too much to take without like 40 books on top of it all!)
