Hi Michael, 
Below are a couple of sites you may want to check out.
The first is Perseus, which contains many of the
Classical Texts in entirity, both in English and
Greek, and relevant commentary and other fun stuff.
There you will find the Histories by Herodotus, and
the Narrative of the expiditions of Cyrus the Younger
by Xenophon. Have fun! 

The second is another site, lots of stuff there, but
that's primarily where I go for straight reading of
Herodotus, no commentary or stuff. The first site,
while complete, is rather clumsy, lots of maps and
charts and translation tools, but it only shows a
couple of paragraphs at a time, and takes a long time
just to read one chapter...the second works well but
has no fun extras, like lexicons...I suggest using the
sites together. 

Have fun with history! It rocks!
