08:41 pm - Achievement?
I pumped my bicycle's tires today.

And because incandescens is talking about Dracula, and I have never read Dracula, so I have no notion who everyone is, I rescued the coverless copy of Dracula from the Weefree Library across the street. It's also missing the end pages as well, but from context I deduce that Dracula has been dealt with by that point.

The list was a mixed bag. Dickens, Marco Polo, Herodotus, Thucydides, Dracula, Frankenstein...

Argh-not-Thucydides. Herodotus is on-crack fun, though a *trifle* heavy for a young teenager; but Thucydides is just grim.

I do remember bogging down in Thucydides. Herodotus was much more interesting.

Though when we were actually translating Greek at school years later, I actually quite liked him (he was one of the set texts) - his sentence construction and grammar were reasonably straightforward, as I remember it.
