It is generally recommended that you read through the grammar section first or that you are reading through it as you work through the Reader. As the first few readings have extensive footnotes glossing words and grammar points.

Personally I like the layout of the New Introduction.

What really grabbed my good-willing in New Introduction is that throughout the grammar section you have short sentences with translation which is very good for me as it helps me make direct connotations between the old Norse and English words.

Yes, I think they really are. :)

Heh, why?
I personally can't learn grammar from strictly reading grammar books. I find it better to study it alongside with [not big] amount of vocabulary through texts. That's what made me use the introductory course to Old Icelandic, frankly said.

Which I believe is the optimal way to use the New Introduction as well, it just so happens that the texts are in a separate book (just like the JACT Greek course).

I like that as well. I especially like how they provide literal translations into English.

I haven't paid much attention to the second volume, yet. I still keep close to the Old Icelandic introduction.

Beside the learning books, how far have you gone with the language, fellow learners? :)

I got interested in Old Norse when I found a Swedish metal band that has lyrics written in Old Norse, the composer said in an interview that he learned reading old law books and Bible texts, and he has some rune-books too

There are other bands that do the same thing, I think it's a good idea, these Old languages sound good on music.

Maybe in the near future I start to study Old Norse...

Yes, the band is called Arckanum, here is a song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvpIOq58Jno

The lyrics:

ginnunga ginnunga
þjóðgapit standa opit
slefu streymir
sem ísavatn inn gelli
út kómu þursamegin
ór kjøltu þér þjónar aurgelmis
breiða allvísa hráka þitt
blóð hrímþursa kallaðir
eitráar kallaðir
svala á Hvergelmis
andi minn drukkit hafða
andi minn es kominn af svartvøtn
hvergelmis
Hvergelmir dreki
með høfuðum ellifu
frá Utgarði
ek kalla þik
dreki eitrhøggvandi
reistu nú
æn flæða heima
skilja eftir þig enginn
svartísgap frekr
hvámdu allt

How did this association appear that the Old Norse is sung as black metal rock?

You could also rap in Old Norse if you wanted to.

I kind of started learning Old Norse by coincidence.
I had to decide for a field of study. I knew I wanted to study but my plan back then was to do something I like for a year and get the requierements I needed to start studying to become a teacher. So I thought "ok, let's do something fun for a year". So I looked at the university's offers and I saw "Scandinavian Studies". Sounds like fun.
I always wanted to learn Danish so that's why I took this in the first place. I actually didn't really look at the curriculum since I only wanted to do it for a year. So I was a bit surprised when I saw Old Norse on my timetable. But I've been very fond of Latin at school so I thought "yeah, well, this might be fun".

That is why I started learning Old Norse. I noticed that Scandinavian Studies were EXACTLY what I wanted to study so I kept it and I decided not to become a teacher. And I am so happy about it. And Old Norse has always been one of my favourite courses at university.
