I love languages and so I studied about ten so far, to varying degrees, and that led me to the study of linguistics because the differences, sometimes subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle, between them fascinated me. I've admittedly developed some bizarre inerests in my pursuit of this topic, as the list of books below will no doubt prove. I've also included on the list some of my textbooks from my linguistic education, so that the beginner who wants to learn more can do so before they get in over their heads with the other stuff.

These pages contain books on language instruction, literature in some cases, and also linguistics books that relate to that particular language. Browse the list. Some books could be put in more than one place and may not be, so e.g. There is a book that compares Sanskrit, Latin, Classical Greek and the Teutonic (Germanic) languages, and it's on the Sanskrit page. Why? 'Cause that's what I was looking for when I found it, I guess.
Indo-European (linguistics, mostly)
Classical Greek Old English
Old Norse, Old Icelandic, Runes
Altaic Luo & Nilo-Saharan
