Latin Library

The site www.thelatinlibrary.com looks like a really interesting one-it has several books, by Livy, Cicero, Ovid, etc., in Latin. The trouble is, I can't read them yet...so I don't know if they're good copies or not. ;D <br /><br />Keesa

I have got stuck a couple of times reading Cornelius Nepos' potted biographies of famous people on thelatinlibrary, and both times submitted the problem to textkit, only to find that they were typos. So be warned.
