I requested like 50 books from the library. Lots of reading to do.

Kudos to you, I admire people who can read that much.  Despite having tried, I really don't think I can handle reading more than one book at a time.  Even when I try to read two at a time, it doesn't seem to work as well as if I'd just read one immediately after the other. 

I used to be able to read 3 or 4 books at a time, but lately am having trouble getting through a book and, say, a magazine.

My attention span has grown shorter, but I still do the three books at a time thing (hard copy, Kindle, kid book with the young 'un).

I'm a location reader with one book in my study, another in the living room, one at the bedstand, and one at my office (for lunch breaks).  Lately, I just don't make it into my study and once I get to bed, I crash.

A classic translation.  If you're willing, you may also want o compare it to the more recent translations of Fagle and Lombardo.  All are excellent.

"Robert Grant draws upon his fifty years of experience dealing with the correlation of early Christianity and classical culture to demonstrate that Christian 'heretics' were the first to apply literary criticism to Christian books. He shows that the heretics' methods were the same as those of pagan contemporaries, and that literary criticism derived from the Hellenistic schools. Literary criticism was later used by famous orthodox leaders, and, as time passed, orthodox critics increasingly found that these methods could serve them well. Grant supports his argument by focusing on principal figures Origen, Dionysius of Alexandria, Eusebius, and Jerome."

Or E.V. Rieu!

Also the Odyssey by George Herbert Palmer is just the best (but hard to find). I dislike audio books as a rule, but if you can find Norman Dietz's narration of this, you're in heaven..

The Place of Blessed Augustine in the Orthodox Church, by Fr. Seraphim Rose. First time I've read this one in probably 8-9 years. (To the good fellow who asked me about my thoughts on Fr. Seraphim, I haven't forgotten your question, I'm just really slow at answering people. :-X But I'm going to try to reread some books by him before I respond... that's the plan anyway).

I had a paperback with some of Seneca's letters. Also still have a hardback with his longer moral epistles. Great stuff. I love Seneca. Much better than the crap today we are told to read to help with depression and so forth. They make it worse. Seneca gives you wisdom and fortitude.
True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them — the desire to do right — is precisely the same.

I have to admit I am like Erasmus in a way. I would like there to be a St. Plato, a St. Socrates, St. Seneca, etc. if possible. I place my classical literature on nearly the same level as Christian literature sometimes I fear. I should ask my friend who can do icons I think to make me an icon of Socrates.  :angel:

Seneca is incredibly boring and not very original.

I'll give you that. However, pretty much anything is better than those self-help books.

Socrates is the one on the right.

I dust this one off on occasion.  Good selections, though for an intermediate student (not suggesting you are), the lack of more copious notes can be a hindrance to building up more confidence.
