January 2012 Book Porn

Made another trip to McKay's today and found quite a bit of interest in their Foreign Languages aisle. Languages fascinate me and I thought it'd be interesting to pick up elementary guides to Finnish and Gujarati, in case I want to learn bits and pieces of those language to go with the dozen or so grammars in other languages I already own. Picked up two books in French, and five in German, including Hesse's Der Steppenwolf, which I will read later this year or next.
