> Dear all,
> 
> The conversations about Sanskrit Readers on-list and the many truly kind and helpful emails I received off-list suggested to me that an inventory of these books might be useful. Please find below all the Readers I am aware of, with pdf download links wherever available, or alternatively lists of the libraries that (according to WorldCat) hold a copy.
> 
> If anyone has anything to add to this list (more titles, more links, pdfs, other information), I would greatly appreciate it if you could send it to me, and in a few weeks' time, I will send a more complete version of this inventory to the Indology list.
