Books I’ve found useful for learning German. I find the relatively simple language and repeating themes in the stories help me learn.
Funf Freunde (Famous Five) The backs of the books say they’re suitable for children – sound’s perfect!
Star Trek II: Der Zorn des Khan – A nice, easy to follow story, especially if you’re familiar with the film or Star Trek.
Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen – A classic for learning foreign languages. You know already know the story which helps for keeping track of what is going on.
Old School Fiction
Fighter: The True Story of the Battle of Britain, Len Deighton.
Politics and Philosophy
Why I Write, George Orwell
One Minute Manager This is the first in a series of ‘one minute’ manager. I picked my copy up at a charity shop for a couple of quid. Well worth a read.
