I am still reading Bel-Ami. I am nearly halfway through it, but I won’t be able to read it by the time the book is due on Tuesday. I’ll have to continue by downloading a copy. I have to find a French one for the Kindle though. I’m enjoying reading it in French, but it’s one of those books where none of the characters are likable so I’m not really rooting for anyone. The writing is good though; I do love French.
No reading today as a friend is visiting from out of town so I am out and about. It’ll be a good way to test my new camera out.
In an effort to curb my hobbies, I’ll probably drop badminton after Christmas. I am no longer looking forward to it like I use to. I even skipped it to this week because I was tired and I rather play fiddle instead. I’m really getting into my music. It’s been six weeks, and I’ve learned three tunes. I find it meditatively and boosts my confidence since I’ve never been particularly musical.
Next month, I’ll have more time to read (yay!), but also look for jobs (boo!).
What is everyone reading this weekend? Have a good week!
It’s hard to keep reading when you don’t like any of the characters. I have to invest in at least one in order to enjoy a book.
Thanks for sharing…here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST
Hi Laurel-Rain! I agree when you don’t like them. I’m mostly indifferent to them and I sort of understood the point of the book is how amoral the setting is. The writing is good though. Thanks for the comment!
Badminton seems too fun to quit. I’m addicted to tennis but badminton seems fun too. You might need it this (long) winter. cheers! http://www.thecuecard.com/
Hi Susan! It’s not as fun as it use to be for me.. we’ll see how it goes next month when I don’t have to work. Thanks!
How’d it go with the camera? I’m job hunting too, so good luck to you!
Hi Jinjer! I didn’t take it out today as I was walking around a lot and afraid it was going to rain (it did). Another weekend hopefully. Good luck on your job search too! Thanks!
You do so many wonderful hobbies it must be hard to juggle them though! I like badminton and I love photography. Reading will always be top of my list. This weekend I finished reading a really wonderful memoir called Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon about a woman’s life in Alaska. Hopefully have my thoughts up this week.
Hi Jessica! Hobbies are wonderful, but I really need to curb a couple of them to make way for the others like reading and photography. I also need to be productive on my job search. Thanks for sharing. Have a good week!
