Subject: Can you read too much in a foreign language?
Question: Hi!

I am bilingual, and am wondering if can be dangerous in some way to
your grip of one language, if you read and is exposed too much to
the other. I like and prefer to read in the one language, but
material and books that I am interested in tend to be more widely
available in the other. Could it be harmful to my use of the first,
reading too much of the second?
