This week’s Bookish Scene: Project 52 theme is „New Beginnings“ and after doing some heavy thinking about how to turn this into a picture I decided to go back quite a few years and show you my very first book that I’ve read in a foreign language (English).
I was 12 years old when „Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire“ came out in 2000 and still remember how excited I was when my parents gave me this big book and even though I was a little bit intimidated by the 635 pages I was so happy that I could read it already months before the German edition was published. I remember spending half the reading time with Harry Potter and the other half looking up words in the dictionary but it was absolutely worth it. So this definitely was a new beginning for me because trying to read books in English opened up a whole new world to me.
