Hello, beloved followers! As previously mentioned, I have a bunch of old Classics journals. (They’re small books with lots of Classics articles!) If you want one, reblog this post (please be following me and don’t reblog it more than, say, five times, don’t bother your followers) or like it. That’s all. 

This ends…say, on October 18th?
