My Mom generously set us up with some books to get us started. I supplemented the collection with currently popular Swedish literature. I am admittedly way late on the Stieg Larsson train…
The Beginner’s Swedish book comes with CDs, which I’ve uploaded to iTunes and hopelessly try to speak along with. I’m jazzed to learn Swedish, but I guess all Swedes speak English so I might not get too far. Lazy American.
The other 2 books are really fun to look through and will likely come in really handy.
And finally, we’ll get real with you. There is no real preparation going on now. Tomorrow is Christmas, so we’re
trying to just enjoy our time off really lazy. Packing for our international move is the new diet: we’re starting tomorrow.
