Ramon Said:

What is a good book for non-native college students?

We Answered:

When I first started to read in English, I read something that I used to read in my own language a long time ago first.
Already familiar with the story, I could understand it more easily, but the joy of reading was still there because the books were great, and I forgot many parts of them already.

Try Haruki Murakami's in English, perhaps? I just finished "After Dark" and it was cool.
"South of the Border, West of the Sun" and "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" is on the line.

Good luck.
