Read from September 02, 2011 to January 02, 2014 — I own a copy , read count: 2

One of Plato's dialogues that actually is a dialogue - Phaedrus isn't just a straw man for Socrates to use as he makes his argument, instead the two speakers guide each other to a mutual conclusion regarding the nature of rhetoric and (to a lesser extent) love.

The Nehamas/Woodruff edition is really comprehensive and useful, especially for the non-classicist.
