Booking Through Thursday

From: Booking Through Thursday:

Here’s an idea from Julie:

I had an idea for a BTT question when I was taking a peek at one of my bookcases yesterday and spotted my old copy of the Aeneid in Latin sitting there. Maybe this question has already been done—but if not… Do you have any foreign language books and if so can you (still) read them?

I have a copy of "Nine Princes in Amber" by Roger Zelazny in Russian. I don't read Russian - never have - but a friend of mine who shared my obsession with this series went to Russia for a semester in college and brought this back as a gift. The mysterious characters make the book seem even more magical, and I smile whenever I catch sight of it on the shelf.

I'd love to be really fluent in another language. I've studied three others (English doesn't count although I can technically consider it as a foreign language), but I can't get past the greetings hehe. Cheers!
