Or did I miss the Vinge reviews? I'm rereading A Fire in the Deep just because I saw we might. So I guess that's what I'd be reading, if I wasn't so addicted to my keyboard this minute.

...I'd learn french in order to read Remembrances of Things Past, Spanish to read Don Quixote, and Russian to read War and Peace, in the original.

I'm on hiatus right now from A la recherche du temps perdu, but it was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the headline. I started it in English, but after 10 pages decided it was too beautiful not to read in the original. Time-consuming as hell, but very tasty!

The other one is in a foreign language where my competence is even flimsier: LTI by Victor Klemperer, on the way Nazism twisted the German language. An amazing book, and I don't know how you'd really get the effect in English.

I've found two HNP books, Getting to Yes and Getting Past No, to be indispensable handbooks for everyday life...so I'm looking forward to reading another HNP book I bought recently, Beyond Reason. When I started reading it, I found its lessons easy to read but difficult to absorb, so I expect that reading for understanding will require some time.
