I am looking for resources to progress in Latin reading. In particular, I would like a set of texts (for example short stories or fables) whose difficulty increases as you go along.

1 Answer 1


A very good option would be A Little Latin Reader by Mary C. English and Georgia Irby-Massie.

The Bryn Mawr Classical Review had the following to say about it:

In 50 short chapters, English and Irby have assembled over 200 passages (2-10 lines in length) of authentic Latin arranged in order of increasing difficulty of the grammatical or syntactical concept being emphasized. In Chapters 1-46, passages are drawn from Caesar, Catullus, Cicero, Horace, Livy, Martial, Ovid, Tacitus, and Vergil and from Latin inscriptions that treat aspects of daily life in the Roman world.

  • Do you know if this has a digital version available? I've found paperback editions available from various places, but didn't find a digital version for Google Books or Amazon Kindle.

  • @Adam No, I'm afraid I don't know anything about a digital version of it. Nov 21, 2020 at 20:54
