The Wheelock Latin Books Group Purchase
I've done some price comparison, and it seems the cheapest offer, including airmail shipping, is from amazon.com. Cheaper than amazon.co.uk, powells.com, dyonon.com, and academon.co.il. It comes to ~85 NIS per book, including shipping. There is a chance the VAT people would intercept the package, in which case it would come to almost 100 NIS. That's still cheaper than all other alternatives.

The books would arrive about two weeks from the day we order. Since we want to begin soon, we should order ASAP. I'll Xerox the first chapter for our first session, but you really want to have the book as soon as possible.

So, I'll need a precise list of people interested in the book. Putting your name here (use the 'comment on this' link) means you're committing to paying for the book, even if you drop out of the course at some point. Please don't screw me over by getting me stuck with books I've ordered for you. Couples who live together can probably share a single copy (the book doesn't have fill-in exercises).

State your name below if you want me to buy a book for you. Even if you already said so in my earlier post. Please say it again under this post, just so everything is perfectly clear. If you're just not sure, don't sign your name, and you'll be responsible for getting your own copy after you decide you're interested in the course. I'll only be making one concentrated purchase, and I'll be making it soon, i.e. by Monday. If, for any reason, you want more than one copy, state this clearly.

Thank you, and let's get this adventure going!

Is this a prerequisite for taking Beginners' Classical Greek next semester?

Makes more sense to sign in for the book
only if we know we're in - which I'll know,
for that matter, only *after* you announce the day.
So - it's waiting for Sunday for me.

so I'm afraid you'll have to count me out unless the day changes (at this point Thursday seems to be the leading choice).

My husband and I will need a single copy. I'll pay you tonight.

(Yes, I was waiting to say that on LJ for a while now. Yes, I will keep up the over-zealous-over-excited-newly-wed thing fore the foreseeable future.)

Hello, jumping in here, Yaron told me about this Latin group and I'd really like to join, you may know me, or rather have heard my name or something, I'm Hadar. So...can I? If you already got the books' order done I can get one for myself, I also know a bit of Latin, I sat through all of the previous semester at TAU of year one Latin.
