haven't written one of these for a while ...

I've had quite a lot of other stuff going on, so bits & pieces really. still plugging away through the Harry Potter books - I just noticed that I passed the 7,000 page mark towards my 10,000 page reading target, which is quite gratifying. I have reached a level where I can follow YouTube videos in French & it helps with vocab for areas which interest me, as well as general listening comprehension. obviously it helps to have some visual cues/clues, but I'm pleasantly surprised how much I can follow & it makes a nice change from reading about Le Quiddich. ;)

note to self: "un ouragan" is "a hurricane" not "an orangutang" although the latter can be more amusing, depending on context.

finished Harry Potter #5 - up to 8k pages of my 10k target. I'm going to read something that's not Arry Potteur next.

it's been too nice lately to do much proper studying, so I've just been reading, & watching stuff on YouTube to keep myself ticking over. I do need to do some grammar though - my verb conjugation has slipped since I haven't been Anki'ing & has slipped from being quite bad to being atrocious. :(

Pardon the interruption, but 10,000 pages of French is 10,000 pages of French. You deserve a big pat on the back, and consider this post to be one. Any ideas what "real" French you'll read next?

thank you. I am quite pleased with myself. :)

I have a few French-French books to read: "L'elegance du Herisson", "Meursault, contre-enquête", a couple of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's flying-related books, plenty to keep me going for a while.

plus some more non-french-French books too. :D
