What books have you read in a language other than one you know?

What books have you read in a language other than one you know?

When I was studying French in public school, I read three books in that language: "Le Petit Prince", "La Belle et la Bête" (very abridged short version), and the first volume of "Valérian et Laureline". I read them by making enlarged photocopies, and then grinding over them by hand with a pencil and a dictionary. (There was, of course, no Google Translate back in those days.)

Have you ever done anything similar?
What language and what book?
How did you do it?
