Starting Over


I finished reading The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Laroux this morning while I was eating breakfast.  I've had the novel in my possession for over a year now, and finally decided to crack it open the other day.  I had been putting it off because someone (I can't remember who at this point) told me it was a difficult read, and I have been feeling more like "light and fluffy" material lately. 

I would like to make it known that The Phantom of the Opera  is not a difficult read at all.  It is, in fact, one of the easier novels I have read in the past two months.  Its competition consisted of Jane Eyre and Northanger Abbey, and it will be followed by Language in Society (a textbook that I didn't get the chance to use).

I'm not sure what I'll read after I finish the textbook - by then, the textbook for my ASL course should have arrived in the mail, so I'll probably take a look at that.  I need to start practicing my French and German again, and I do have copies of the Lord of the Rings in French, so maybe I will give that another try.  I have a philosophy book entitled Die Sprache der Moral that I've been eager to look at, but my level of German comprehension is nowhere near high enough to be able to apprecite it fully.  I need to get my hands on some young-adult books in German!
