Thank you Carl for the info.  Not only did I get a Greek book [plus key, of
course] that I have been wanting for a while for less than half price -
actually less than a 1/5 of the price if I bought locally - but I also got
$313 worth of anthropology of religion books for $82 for my research.  With
the exchange rate for $US ->$AU at the moment, I don't even have to worry
about any nasty surprise when I get my Visa statement.  I got my reading of 
Reading Greek" done this morning, then spent 90 minutes buying books.  What
an enjoyable way to spend a morning! :)  Almost seems a shame to ruin it by
actually studying for the rest of the day.

I was drawing attention to what appears to be a good deal. I don't 
Particularly recommend the traditional approach to learning Biblical 
Or Attic Greek, but Mastronarde is one of the better traditional type 
Textbooks for Attic Greek. Another very good one is Hansen and Quinn, 
_Greek: An Intensive Course_ (http://tinyurl.com/32vgj2). Personally 
I preferred to teach using the JACT _Reading Greek_ series (http:// 
Tinyurl.com/2lfndv -- but one needs both the Reading book and the 
Grammar book).
