You aren't! I react the same way when I get new books! And I sometimes go looking for new books (hence the "prospecting in used bookstores") just for the rush!
<br /><br />Count me in. tho' I'm in low budget nowadays to behave a nerd. :-[ So I'm with red-hot eyes looking for free, online materials, and that's how I got to this site.<br /><br />Two sanskrit dictionaris(one big and one small), sans' grammar, ugaritic grammar, akkadian grammar, etc. are sleeping like the sleeping beauties in my bookshelves and I'm fighting with the daily business(and other practical books for my job I have to get through) to reach the beauties.<br /><br />

You're not a nerd, I phoned my house today 12 times within a span of 3 hours to see if my amazon books (ordered prior to textkits' association >:() had arrived. Alas they had not. <br /><br />Jeff, you originally said you would post your Latin collection at a later date. Did I miss this or do you have so many that you must conserve energy in order to type them all out? :o

Count me in with the nerds! I love reading; I love books! (Why else become a writer?) If I were making any money right now, I would be spending it on books. Instead, I'm doing the next best thing; writing books! <br /><br />Long live the book! <br /><br />Keesa

<br />well, the sans' dictionaries thru amazon and the grammar from a web site. ugaritic and akkadian also thru amazon. I had better gotten through the online materials first if the books were to be abandoned like now. :-[<br /><br />mariek:

A query for some of you people into learning lots of languages - is there a something like a Textkit site for Arabic? It's a language I would love to learn (when I get a spare moment or two) as it has a long history, spoken by many millions of people and must have some incredible literature going back to mediaeval times. If there are no books on the web, even a recommendation for a grammar book would help. I see this as a long term project as I am fairly pushed for spare time at the moment, but one of these days.....<br />

Latin

In Hard-copy book form:

The New Latin Primer -JP Postgate, this edition dated 1911(falling apart).
Via Latina: Abbott's First Latin Book -Edwin Abbot[i], dated 1893 (Newest aquisition, as of today, very good condition).
[i]Gepp & Haigh Lat-Eng Dictionary
, dated 1911.(falling apart).
Oxford Latin Minidictionary, dated 1994 (in immaculate condition).
Cicero Verrine V, -R.G.C Levens, dated 1965 (very good condition).

Then I have a few books on Roman 'personalities' -generals and the like and also on Roman culture. Again these are mainly dating from the late 19th century, one on Tacitus dating from the early 19th.

In PDF or txt/doc form on the Computer:

D'Ooge's Latin for Beginners[/i[(my main text)
[i]New Latin Primer by CE Bennett
(Notice a lot of Latin textbooks have almost identical names?)
De Bello Gallico -Caesar
Cicero's Select Orations
Also a electronic Eng-Lat-Lat-Eng Dictionary.

I've only been 'collecting' for about 6 months, so not a bad haul, considering that I live in rural New Zealand, where Latin books are a rare find and shop-keepers look at you askance and ask "Why are you learning THAT?" when you ask if they have any books on the subject.

The texts I use regularly are D'ooge's Latin for Beginners, and Postgate's New Latin Primer.

i started out with wheelocks.
now i am using a textbook called learn to read latin. it is from yale university press written by Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell.
has anyone ever heard of it?
we are using it at the university of minnesota and supposedly it is only the second year it's been used.
i find it much better than wheelocks. there is a less vocab and much more in the way of constructions, which is very helpful.
