I finished my book today! Yay!
I feel the need to qualify that statement. Specially since I am reading plenty of books at the same time.
By referring to this entity as "book" I am pertaining to the specific material object made of paper and bound, that is read for entertainment and not as a requirement for a certain class, course, or other academic activity. In short, my novel.
So I am done with Gogol, now, I am going to start on a Hungarian novel, Azarel, by the author Karoly Pap. I found the book in Lockwood one day, and so I checked it out.
Oh I love my library.
Speaking of books, I found out the textbooks that I would need for the Spring semester. Looks like I need to shell out at least USD 120.00 for books.
For my Bilingualism and Contact Linguistics class.
For my Syntax 2 class.
For my Semantics 2 class.
For the reading group that I joined, which will meet every other Thursday night.
Actually, I am going to take four classes, but the fourth class won't be using any textbook. As if that helps...
And mind you, I don't sell them back to the bookstore. Because, one day, I know, I will have my own office in a university department, and I need books to occupy my shelves.
Of course, I'm supposed to read them and use them as references as well, not just occupants of shelves.
