Parallel texts - a useful learning resource?

I'm getting to the stage where I need to practise my reading skills. Googling "Polish parallel texts" doesn't bring up many results so I thought maybe people could post some links here.

e.g. lonweb.org/daisy/ds-polish-nightwatch.htm - POLISH NIGHT WATCH

This looks quite promising, I'll certainly post some similar stuff if I find any

Here's one i found a while back: odur.let.rug.nl/~houtzage/poldownloadsmp3.html

It has a few readings in Polish downloadable as mp3 files and parallel texts of the readings in English and Polish. I think that the sounds recordings make this quite useful.

I'm looking for the exact same thing, parallel texts. Any more replies to this post would be much appreciated!

This isn't quite the same, but each drill like sentence has the translation. I've personally found it extremely helpful. I can break down words and meanings easier this way, as opposed to paragraphs where I'm not sure how things are placed. Maybe you know this site already, but maybe someone else can benifet.

polishgrammar The basics through more complex.

These tests have been linked to somewhere else on PF. I have found them very useful. Polish on one side, English on the other - they just about qualify for this thread!

Sorry, but where are the readings? I found the sound files, yet not the reading itself.

Thanks

EDIT:
Never mind, I found it.

Here it is, you can hopefully edit your post to also include this one: let.rug.nl/%7Ehoutzage/polish.html
