Halfway through May book situation! I just finished Harry Potter à l'école des sorciers, at 305 pages the longest French book I've read to date. I'm glowing.

I'm a bit over halfway through The Fellowship of the Ring and that's what I should be concentrating on, considering I started reading it back in March. But we'll see how that goes, it's not exactly a quick read. So I've got a German mystery novel on the side! And a bind-up of 47 mystery short stories! And the illustrated edition of the same book I JUST FINISHED! Just in case I get bored.

I feel like I need a Potter break, but the Pottermore Book Club thing is happening in June, so... I'll have to see what that's all about. I feel like I'm not ready for the next one. It was actual work to read it in French, and that did take away from my enjoyment, so now I think I should wait until I'm in the mood instead of forcing myself.

My next French book will be a middle grade-ish mystery novel by Christian Grenier that I bought on a whim last year, it's shorter and it shouldn't be too hard.
