📚📚 Read every day challenge - Winter 2023 ☃❄

January 7th & 8th (Days 7 & 8) :snowflake: :cat2:

Home post :books:

I didn’t have much time or energy to read yesterday, so opened up a random nhk article and skimmed through it just for the sake of reading something.

Today I decided to join the チュベローズで待ってる AGE22 bookclub to mix things up a bit (reading too much Murakami at once can get a little tiring :sweat_smile:), and I am very happy I did so! It was really difficult to put the book down, so I ended up reading the first two chapters.

As for Russian, I started reading Морфий today. The difference in difficulty compared to the collection of stories is quite big, and I have a feeling I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew. I am just not sure I have the mental capacity to read both this and Japanese daily - I can already feel my brain frying :melting_face: Perhaps it’s time to reconsider my approach.


I usually don’t write new words down unless something really catches my eye. Flash cards and notes are also too much effort for something I know I won’t look at again. So I usually just rely on picking up knowledge passively. I’ll look up whatever I don’t know and if it sticks it sticks. If it doesn’t I’ll just hope it will stick the next time I come across it :smile:
