LibraryThing Anroid App

I haven’t tried it out yet, but looking forward to it!

Well, That Didn’t Take Long!

In order to access the Wheelock’s course, you have to be registered with this site. I’ve received gazillions of fake registrations since that was implemented.

New Wheelock’s Group on the LatinStudy List

There’s been discussion lately of starting a new Wheelock’s group on the LatinStudy List. A start date hasn’t yet been announced.
