how are you approaching Thucydides?

I am on my first run through…and have been doing about 15 pages a sit down (done about 30 so far)…I only stop because I’ve got some other stuff to attend to; it’s not that I am thinking while I am reading that it is so interesting but I keep thinking I’ll miss out and forget it if I stop because I am just trying to figure out who or where everyone is, etc. (the maps really help), so it is definitely absorbing.  I highlight while I read and will re-read before group and try to get through some of the appendices in the back. I don’t usually read for pleasure so attentively but because every word seems so much more important and the lay of the land is still strange to me, I am making far more effort.

    <p>I read every single one. And reread sometimes. Incredibly useful for facts and context.</p>
