NEW AUDIOBOOK - 'Julia' by Maud Reed

Latinum http://latinum.org.uk has released a new Latin Language audiobook - 'Julia', by Maud Reed.
This Latin audiobook contains stories of Roman myth, legend, pseudo-history, and history. The conceit of the book is that the stories were recited to a young girl, Julia, an inhabitant of Roman Britain.

The audiobook is for the most part quite elementary, and is intended for beginners, although all levels of students of Latin benefit from listening to 'comprehensible input', ...

Off to the beach tomorrow for a summer vacation & hope to catch the eclipse in Charleston, S.C.
(Sadly, looks to be cloudy all up and down the Mid-Atlantic states, but The Fates will decide).
Anyway, bringing my Loeb Caesar I, II, III to read. They are the perfect size for the beach and

But I notice that even within individual volumes Caesar is sometimes C.(Caius) as in the text ...

Nutting's Latin Primer
