My first book in German

I'm reading my first book in German, for my new German class: 'Der Geschmack von Apfelkernen' (lit. 'The taste of apple kernels'), a big bestseller in Germany.

Der Geschmack von Apfelkernen (Paperback)
by Katharina Hagena
Kiepenheuer & Witsch, 2009
254 pp., ISBN 978-3462041491

I already read 'Der kleine Prinz' (engl. titl. 'The Little Prince') in German, but it 'doesn't matter', even if it's my favourite book.
To put it better, I already read 'The Little Prince' in Italian, English and French so many times, so it doesn't matter because I know the text very well and reading a book I know so well it's obviously not as difficult as a book never read before.

I started today.
