Loeb Classical Library...suggestions needed!

After searching in vain for the better part of two years I finally located a bookstore in Toronto that regularly carries Loeb's. I was estatic until I started adding up totals and realized that I'd either have to become a millionaire or selectively choose which to purchase. I believe there are close to 500 titles currently available and sadly I only own four.

May I ask why?

Why doesn't Greek have an ablative case? This is going to be quite a challenge indeed, learning this language. :?

re: irregular verbs


Am I understanding these words to be irregular verbs of the word "esse"?

using abhinc

I'm confused about the correct way to say 'three days ago'. My Longmans' book says abhinc plus accusative. N&H also shows an example with abhinc followed by the accusative: 'three days ago - abhinc tres dies' but in the key to the exercises, the time is in the ablative: (36.9)'I saw my friend at Carthage three months ago - Tribus abhinc mensibus Carthagini meum amicum vidi'
Should the time be ablative or accusative?

Conversational Greek

Hello, all!

Is there any online resource about conversational Ancient Greek? My searches only yield modern Greek results.

I'm looking for basic stuff like 'hello', 'goodbye', 'how are you', weather, etc. The kind of stuff you might find in one of those little travel books.

The difference between QVIRE and POSSE

Is there any notable difference between these verbs? I believe that I use them both well but I would like to know if there is anything of which I should be aware.

And how did Queo etc. come about?

What are you currently reading?

Ancient or modern. Either in the original language or translated

I'm five books into Herodotus. Translation unfortunately, seeing as I've only studied Greek for 2 weeks :)

Your school classes.

Well it's that time of year again and summer is over (for me at least). I just had my first day of school (I'm in 11th grade now), which overall was pretty good. It's kind of a relief to get back to a schedule (yeah, I'm odd) rather than just lazing around the house. I like all of my teachers except for the PE teacher who seems a little dim-witted and talks like Boomhower off ...
