Wheelock's Latin Reader vs. 'Aeneas to Augustus'

Quite often people seek advice regarding a good intermediate Latin reader. My suggestion:

'Aeneas to Augustus' by Mason Hammond, Anne Amory, HUP 1967.

It provides a good selection of original texts with ample and precise notes. You will get to read most of Rome's famous writers and poets - usually their most popular passages.

Wheelock's Reader has a limited number of writers, and the commentaries are somewhat scarce. It is still an excellent reader, but it is somewhat less rewarding, in my opinion.
