Reading English in the German-Speaking World

Why do you read books in English, if you’re not a native speaker of English? I mean okay, I love the English language. But there is something else:

  • If the book was originally written in English, you can read the original version of the book. Not just some translation.
  • The book is usually on the market a lot earlier than the translated version (if there will ever be one).
  • The price of the English version is often much lower than that of the translation.

So why do you read English books?
