In an effort to stave off the real world and its terrors (e.g. research, jobs, emotions that kind of thing) and in between my refound joy in fiction I’ve been reading book reviews again.
So I thought I’d make a bit of a record of some of the books I want to make an effort to read. This is extremely dull for non-classicists so is under the cut..
- D. Dueck, (2012) Geography in Classical Antiquity. Key themes in ancient history. Cambridge; New York: Cambridge University Press, [I would really like to see how Dueck’s theories about Strabo inform her overall reading of the genre – am going to try and get hold of this before my viva]

- S. Collin Bouffier (ed.) (2011), Diodore d’Agyrion et l’histoire de la Sicile. Dialogues d’histoire ancienne supplément, 6. Besançon: Presses universitaires de Franche-Comté, [Both of these will require me to brush up on my long neglected French but thats got to be worth doing..]
