Yesterday I went to Book-Off (again)!
Oh tadoku. What a great way to start off the year.
Time to review what I read.
Reading in a foreign language can be an intimidating task for any language learner, regardless of level. There will always be harder material to read. Extensive reading is a staple of language learning for a lot of people, and it is gaining popularity through the web. And what better way to kick off the new year than with a month of extensive reading?
Earlier this month I announced a challenge that I created to get more genuine book reading time in. Basically, the challenge was to read nine books that I borrowed from the library before they were due back.
Well, after serious consideration, I realized why this challenge was flawed from the start…
I love reading, so much so that I originally made a typo when writing the title: “Read Another Reading Challenge”. I also like challenges. It’s one of the many reasons I took up Japanese in the first place.
Dove into a few well-known works this time around. Also some pretty gory, Saw-like ones.
Another nice Tadoku Round as well. But that will get blogulated later.
