Lot of variety in reading preferences here. Deception point was allright but I liked Digital Fortress better.

Very nice. My Mom is an avid gardener and her back yard truly looks like a garden with numerous beds of flowers, trees and vegetables. She grows organic veggies for my guinea pigs.

How would you compare Wheelock to say: Henle or Cambridge Latin texts?
