Anyway. This week:
Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List
(But it will actually be a top 5 list…)
- Read 52 books a year.
This is the third year I’ve set myself this goal and I will probably keep doing this every year.
- Read one book in every language I’m not 100% comfortable reading in.
Dutch is my native language, and English is clearly not a problem either. But I also want to try reading books in Japanese (have done this before, not super comfortable), German (shouldn’t be a huge problem), and Mandarin (this is going to be a children’s book haha).
- Build a library.
I have a spare bedroom and it has some book shelves in it… but my silly dream is to turn it into a proper home library!
- Read everything (that has been translated) by Haruki Murakami
I’m a huge fan of Murakami, so I’m slowly reading my way through all works available in Dutch/English. After that I might move on to more Japanese…
- Keep up my book buying ban.
I’m proud to announce I haven’t bought a book in three weeks! Not for myself, at least, haha. I want to keep this up until the large book market in Deventer on August 3rd…
