Jernvognen

Sold more stuff on Craigslist and eBay and put the Beetle up for sale as well.

Today I got my copy of Jernvognen. I've been reading the first chapter (free download) this past week, and it's very hard. Sometimes I don't even know the translated word in English (what the heck is a "moraine"?) and I assure you I have a very robust vocabulary. I remember when reading my first norsk novel, there was one chapter that was very difficult. This is a whole book of difficult chapters. But, I will read and it will get easier. I also ordered a pocket norsk-engelsk and vice versa dictionary. That should help with the reading!

I think I'm done buying Norwegian books for now. Partly because we're out of time, and partly because I've bought just about everything!
