    Ebooks in the Classics

    I just discovered the ebooks: https://www.memoriapress.com/ebooks/
    Famous Men series, Iliad, Aeneid, Books of Middle Ages/Ancient Roman/Ancient Greeks

    I'm probably the last to discover them. But posting here just in case someone else needs to know or missed it.

    Upon further investigation about these ebooks, they are not audible. They are PDFs. I was hoping they were audible. Sadness.

      So has anyone found a workaround for these for students who need audio?

        Sigh.

        The workaround for us is likely going to Momma reading and recording the books herself. ????????

        Iliad and Aeneid have audio versions. Famous Men is available on Librivox, but I've never seen any of the Mills books recorded anywhere.

          Where can I find the "right" translation of the Iliad and Odyssey in audio book form, please?

            At the moment, I don't think it exists. Unless a mom who uses Learning Ally can chime in and tell us it's there.
            Those of us who have older children with learning disabilities are in a bit of a quandary with these books.

            I'm hopeful that MP will create audio versions of these books, as well as the Dorothy Mills books, to help our children tackle these levels.

              Famous Men series is on audible! I listened to it with the MP copy in hand and while it wasn't 100%, it was nearly matching.
