Special Round-Up: December 11 + Hiatus

NOTE: I'm going to be out of town for a few days, so this will be the last round-up for a week or so, but I'll be back online and updating the blogs next Friday, December 17. For previous posts, check out the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives.

VERBUM HODIERNUM: Today's word is CREDO - read a brief essay about the word at the Verbosum blog. Here's one of the sayings you can find in the essay: Equo ne credite, Teucri, "Don't trust the horse, O Trojans!"

FABULAE FACILES: The new easy-to-read fable is Lupus et Canis Saginatus, a wonderful fable of freedom!

BESTIARIA PROVERBS: There are some new animal proverbs today for PULEX, the flea, and LYNX, the lynx.

AESOP SLIDESHOW: Today's Aesop slideshows are Asinus Leonis Pelle Indutus, the famous story of the donkey in the lion's skin, and Rana et Vulpes, the story of the frog who wanted to be a physician. (For all the Aesop images, visit Flickr.)

GOOGLE BOOKS: Today's Google Book is Riley's Dictionary of Latin Quotations and some notes on how to annotate GoogleBook PDF files on the iPad using GoodReader.

HOLIDAY SONGS: Check the Holiday Song Calendar to see new songs for each day!

Here are the daily fable and proverbs - they won't come through in the email, but just check the blog post to see what's new for the day... automatically updated while I am gone, thanks to the magic of javascript!
