[INDOLOGY] Sanskrit reader

Dear Antonia,

Can I suggest taking a look at AK Warder's often overlooked (and
unfortunately devanagari-devoid) "Sanskrit Prose Reader"? He includes
an excellent collection of texts and notes. The publisher - University
of Toronto - are unfortunately very unhelpful at providing copies but
resourceful researchers can find copies elsewhere. :)

Another useful reader which again lacks devanagari and whose
explanations are somewhat less than helpful is Gonda's Sanskrit Reader
- which focuses on the Epics & Puranas.

I have a feeling that both of these texts would have proved more
popular if they had been in devanagari but with the advances in OCR
and word processing - that should be easy to rectify.

Kind regards,
Antonio Ferreira-Jardim
