Take a gander at his compiled list of useful resources on how to study Arabic and it’ll be no time till you’re picking up a novel.

My own advice? Pick a book, start reading and just keep going. Look up words for the first chapter then only look up key words to keep you going. Once you’re done, go back and read sections you’re unsure of. This was how I got through my first Arabic novel on my own. It took about a month of solid reading, and was only 150 pages, but, you have to start somewhere!
