I just wanted to thank you for being THE PERSON who turned me onto Google Books a few months ago with your helpful posts.

My own interest is Aesop's fables, and I've found AMAZING things at Google, including 18th and 19th-century editions of Aesop's fables in Latin and in English, many of them illustrated. I had not really paid attention to the amazing treasure trove of Google Books until reading a listing at Latin books at Google here in your blog.

I've been "reformatting" Google Books of Aesop at my website to make them more useful (immediate access to individual fables, integrating searching with other Aesop materials online): one great find was some 19th-century Latin schoolbooks with sections devoted to highly simplified Aesop's fables in Latin. whoo-hoo!


I've digitized the text and written it out in segmented form just to make it that much easier for beginniners.

I'll confess that I've been spending an enormous amount of time prowling around in Google Books. it is really astounding. I really want to thank you for being the person who turned me onto this amazing resource! :-)
