I posted this elsewhere on the SFN site and thought you might like to join in the fun:
We have been here three years now and my french is fine for general conversation (terrible grammer, of course), I watch only French TV and I can write with the aid of a spelling and grammer checker, I have so far not dared to do much reading, apart from the local paper and gardening magazines.
My new year's resolution is to start reading French literature, but which? I have downloaded the complete works of Camus and I will have a look at what Amazon has to offer for my new Kindle ebook reader. I hope there will be lots of free stuff as there is in English.
I have definately decided not to bother with childrens books or BD's, and would prefer modern language rather than classics (with classical language).
Any suggestions of where to start?
