Here’s another post which is totally useless for anyone: books I bought this month.
I blogged about the TOPIK Writing book last week.
The Word 2010 Simplified book I bought because I planned to teach my daughter (10) to use Word but unfortunately she doesn’t care about being a writer anymore. When she grows up, Word 2010 won’t be around, for sure, so I don’t make a big deal about her refusing to read it but… the book cost me 320.000 rupiah (sigh). 괜히 샀어요.
Three books on Minecraft for my children which were expensive but at least now they learn to read English on their own. (We’re Indonesian.)
The Hundred Year Old Man who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. My sister said it was funny and the Korean version (창문 넘어 도망친 100세 노인) was a bestseller in Korea (I know this because being a bookaholic… bibliophile?, I often check Kyobo and Yes24 website to read Korean book titles).
How to Steal a Dog is a novel for children (around 8+) about a homeless girl who plans to steal a dog, and the reason I bought it was because I found the Korean version on Google Play.
An e-textbook for NHK Korean lessons in October, in Japanese.
A Japanese book on how to learn English for grown-ups. It was a quick read. Basically the author was saying it was better to focus on reading and writing skill and that English conversation classes were not effective, and that you learn not as much by focusing on speaking skill.
And the last one is an e-book in Japanese about how to use your brain and remember stuff effectively. I hope it will help me learn Korean.
Oh, and the Samsung tablet is new. I got the cheapest one available in the store: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0″ Wi-Fi only, for 1,600,000 rupiah or about US$ 131.
That’s all. Thank you for reading. ###
