I’m not sure about French. I’m at the same stage with it as with Spanish (minus 2 years of high school). I want to do the same as Spanish: skim-read so as to catch easy sentences . Probably East of Eden is not quite suited. Its font on my kindle is clunky. French strings together words and letters with apostrophe glue.
So I’ll do as I did with my Polish. I’ll switch horses midstream. I’ll use my true and trusty Harry Potter. Interestingly, the word ‘stone’ isn’t used in the title. It’s simply Harry Potter at the School for Wizards.
