Welcome! There is no better place for studying Latin than Textkit-at least none that I know about! :wink: The one thing you must remember is never be afraid to ask a stupid-sounding question. If you don't ask, you don't learn. Or relearn.

Enjoy!

Call me old-fashioned, but in spite of the advantages of ebooks, I hope I'm a thousand years dead before real books are gone. Don't get me wrong; I've read ebooks that I never could have afforded in print. I like ebooks. I just like them in addition to real books, rather than instead of.

School Books (from least favorite books)

I'd be interested to hear what others have read in school and what they thought of the assigned books. Well, my schooling is almost entirely reading.
