We gave Nicole a very good Mp3 player for her birthday. I told her I would start buying her audible books. She takes the street car to school and back (nearly 2 hours of sitting per day). She can use this time to hear required reading...both in English and German. I found a list of the most important English literature for high school students (101 books). I just bought The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, 11 hours long. It's something for Thailand. Mark Twain spent allot of time in Heidelberg. I thought it was a good place for her to begin. She has 2-3 years to get through the list. Most of the books are not covered in German high school.
