I third the Bullfinch recommendation...it's one of my favorites. (I was going to post the link, but I see Ingrid already did.)

I love the site because it's easy to navigate. (Oh-and because I love mythology! :wink: )

Are you learning Old Norse, too? That is to say...I'm not really learning it. Only glancing over the lessons now and then. And sometimes I do the exercises.

But I'm not really learning it. :wink:

And I don't know of any good forums for it.
