Using Dickey's Intro to the Comp and Analysis of Greek Prose

I am starting this thread. It is my thread and I set the rules. If you don't like it, you can post in the other thread on Dickey, or you can start your own thread.

Rule One: The only people who are allowed to post in this thread are people who own the book and are using it or seriously intend to use the book.

That's the only rule.
