New Magazine at Butler Libraries
Here at the El Dorado campus we've started subscriptions this summer to two new magazines:
Mental Floss ("Where Knowledge Junkies Gt Their Fix"). For a take on Mental Floss, look at this list compiled to reveal how language studies could improve for both student and faculty alike: the 10 best books translated into Latin in recent years, Winnie Ille Pu: The Latin Versions of 10 Modern Stories.
The classics listed are children's books for the most part. Harrius Potter. Fernandus Taurus. Olivia, about whose translator it was said, "She gave Latin a life it hasn’t had in hundreds of years."
The Week full of the week's news & opinion, business, arts & life, cartoons, photos and videos (on the website).
Hope you enjoy them.
