Wright, A Selection of Latin Stories from Manuscripts of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries (London, 1842) on Google books ( http://books.google.com/books?id=4oUNAA ... =#PPA13,M1 ). Some argue that you shouldn't read late-Latin before mastering classical latin, but personally I found the Latin Vulgate Bible ( http://www.fourmilab.ch/etexts/www/Vulgate/ ) very interesting and helpful, and I'm not religious, by the way. The trick, I believe, is to find things that interest you enough, so you notice less all the work that must be done. I also bought comics in Latin (Asterix, Tintin) and Harry Potter, Winnie the Pooh, and so on. I thought they would be "easy" but they are still above my level, by which I mean that I cannot read them fluently, without always consulting a dictionary or Whitaker's Words ( http://users.erols.com/whitaker/words.htm ). Your plan to have goals is exactly right, I think. My own goals are to write learning software in Latin and to not say anything here unless I also attempt it in Latin.
I know Gonzalo was using Chrome for a bit but found it not very useful: http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... php?t=8651
Hic liber etiam forsitan amabis, si non continuÃ², tunc futurÃ³: T. Wright, A Selection of Latin Stories from Manuscripts of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries. Nonnulli qui dicunt te non Latinum serum legere debere, nisi primÃ² classicum tenuisse. Ego ipse aliter puto, qui fabulas Bibliae Vulgatae LatinÃ¨ valdÃ¨ utiles tenentesque inveni, et ego non religiosus. Ars est, ut opinor, sat res quae te teneant invenire, ut opus quod faciendum est minÃ¹s onerosum appareat. Emi quÃ²que comicos in Latinum conversos (ut Asterix Titinusque et caetera) atque tales libros ut Harrius Potter atque Winnie Ille Pu. SuprÃ autem me illi,â€”id est, eos facundÃ¨ legere non possum, sin secÃ¹s me oportet in dictionario vel Words programmate apud Whittaker semper inquirere. Tuum consilium fines habendi plaudo, qui mihi ipsi fines pono, ut programmates scholasticos LatinÃ¨ scribam et nulla dicam in hoc foro nisi et AnglicÃ¨ et LatinÃ©.
Scio Gonzalo ad quoddam tempus "Chrome" (anglicÃ¨ nomine) navigatro usum esse, qui eum non utilem invenit.
