What Book(s) are you reading right now?
#1
I'm reading A History of Germany 1815-1945 by William Carr. I think it's sort of an old book because there are only 2 copies on amazon you could buy.

I love reading about Germany.  Smile

Necessary Illusions by Noam Chomsky. He is very thought-provoking,

Now you all have such reading that you leave me with not wanting to say ... I'm reading some of Mercedes Lackey's fiction.  Excellent escape literature!  The Fairy Godmother at the moment.

I haven't found anything by him<??> that wasn't an enjoyable read.  Knowing that he was a linguist explains how he can use words so well.

I took two years of german in high school and a semester's worth In college. I found it a very hard language to learn. :/

Don't be suprised if your daughter needs tutoring for it!

I'll probably call the school Monday and ask them about it...... Someone said they're not offering French (which is what my daughter wanted to take).... What I'm wondering is if the thing about French is true, then why have German and not French.....
