Hey =)

How do you say "I had read"?

When you say "in my opinion", how do you know whether to say "Meine Meinung nach" or "Meiner"?

Thanks!

For "I had read", you need to use the pluperfect tense, as it's one 'step' back from the past tense (I read).

So it would be Ich hatte gelesen

I thought so; thanks a lot! =)

Do you know when to use "Meine" or "Meiner" in terms of "Meine Meinung nach"?

No...that one's puzzling me!

I guess it might vary according to the context in which it is placed, but I can't really think of any reason or an example of when it would happen! I'm sure someone very knowledgeable will come along soon and put us out of our misery!

i thought it was always "meiner"

meine when using the plural though perhaps? Meine Meinungen..?

It's always Meiner Meinung nach. Can't think of any exceptions right now.
But it's Meine Meinung zu diesem Thema ist....

It's always "Meiner meinung nach" because 'nach' takes the dative case
