Cait (clickcait) | 480 comments We've got some of the same books on our lists. Looks like you're off to a fantastic start.

Good luck with the rest of the challenge. :-)

Sidsel Lefmann | 3 comments Update! I thought about adding an extra dimension to my challenge: How many languages can I read in this year?

So, I'm changing #46 to the German version of "Harry Potter and the philosophers stone"Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen and #12 will be a collection of Nordic short stories (Danish, Swedish and Norwegian).

Oh, and I'm doing 1984 for #5 and 13 Little Blue Envelopes for #39 instead.

Anja (thesofa) | 86 comments I'm not sure if reading Harry Potter in German is such a good idea - the German Harry Potter translations are really poor... ;D

Sidsel Lefmann | 3 comments But it's the right difficulty compared to my German skills (medium - poor) and I know the story very well. They can't be worse than the Danish tbh.
