ハリー・ポッターと秘密の部屋 (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets)

やっと読みきれた。ハリー・ポッター・シリーズの第二巻の「秘密の部屋」。4月から結構仕事に沈んでるから、読書の時間がだんだん少なくなってしまった上に、いつも本5・6冊同時に読んでいるから、時間がかかっていた。 十分有名な本だから、内容を伝えなくていいと思う。第一巻と比べたら、自分の読書能力がアップした感じだ。最後に本当に楽しみながら、普通の読み方だった。もちろん、英語かドイツごかイタリア語よりゆっくり読んでいるけど、「読んでいる」感じになってきた。やっぱりeBookがいい!特に新しい言葉の勉強の時。 これから、第三巻に入りま〜す。いつか川端康成、安部公房、中原中也、芥川龍之介、村上春樹等の本を読めるようになりたい!
