Any tips on books to read synoptic in Latin, it should at best be an easy Latin. What about short original text?

What do you mean by, "read synoptic"?

Latin on one side, English (or another language you can read without problem) on the other. The method is to read one sentence in Latin, then directly afterwards in the other language. This is supposed to help you learn Latin, or any other language you don't know for that sake.

Well, the Loeb Classical Library, put out by Harvard University, has the English text facing the Latin text for all kinds of works. Most of them are pretty advanced Latin texts, though, so while they're definitely good to have (I collect 'em) they might not be useful for learning. I know of Greek interlinears, which parse out every word, in a given text, almost always the Bible, but I don't know of any in Latin..

Those books are pretty cool. I've had them as the required edition for classes before.

Mmmmmmm ... Loeb Classical Library. (Seriously, though not for eating.)
