I should start a newsletter for book auctions and prices. I'm no expert, but I have been following the prices of Greek and Latin textbooks for over 3 years now....

anyway, here's what looks to be a book in good condition: Plato's Apology. The books on Textkit, and it's great.

Nice Seymour book up for auction

FYI,

This doesn't come up for auction but only 1 or 2 times a year. It's described as near fine condition

Seymour's Language and Verse of Homer
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... tegory=269

I think it's fair value is somewhere around 25-30 dollars US.

I don't know the seller, so beware. I'm just pointing out a nice item if anyone's interested.

Nice ebay auction for Latin books...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... gory=29306

I'm not going to bid because too many of the books are copyright protected. But it's a very nice collection. I have no idea who the buyer is or the actual condition of the books - so buyer beware! But it's worth looking at.

Use of Infinitive

Xai/rete,

In the following phrase,

Ou)x u(mw=n e)stin gnw=nai xro/nouj h(\ kairou/j "It is not for you to know times or seasons."

I am not sure how to treat the sentence role of the aorist infinitive: gnw=nai. My guess is that it is part of the direct object phrase gnw=nai xro/nouj h)\ kairou/j and xro/nouj h)\ kairou/j is the object of gnw=nai. Or I am I completely wrong, and the infinitive here has a ...

Favorite author (spinoff from Current reads)

Just thought I'd see who you like. I'm a die hard sci-fi-er.

Roger Zelazny tops my list, his Amber series is my all time favorite series. On the whole I prefer his early work (This Immortal, Dilvish the Damned), rather than his late collaborations....when he paired with another author I think he put out some garabage (especially his posthumous work).

Roger is closely Followed by:

Isaac Aasimov
Robert Silverburg
Larry Niven
Orson Scott Card

newbe

Just stumbled accross this website while looking for some greek conjugation tools, I didn't think there was anything like it around.
