1. I love a complicated story with engaging characters, or a nonfiction book that teaches me something I didn‘t know.

2. After dinner and weekends!

My answers:
📘 Sure did! It was fun choosing books that fit the holiday.

How did I miss this yesterday?!

1. A smattering of French and German remembered from my O-levels, but other than that, no.

2. No, I cross my fingers and hope that people in tourist areas will speak English 🙄

1. No 🙈 I took a couple years of Spanish in high school. I know a few choice curse words in Italian thanks to my grandma. And if people speak slowly, I can understand some of what they say in Spanish, French, and Italian.

2. I would try. My dyslexia makes everything more challenging. But I actually pick up accents and phrases really quickly. So I feel like I could learn if I was immersed.

Tuesday at my place is over but I love languages, so here it goes

1. I can speak English very well (I think I should consider it foreign since I live in India) apart from 2 of my regional languages. Plus I'm learning Spanish from an app.

2. I have visited just one country till now and it never crossed my mind. Maybe I'll do it in future.

@TheSpineView This was fun! Happy Tuesday!

Sorry a little late. Here is today's #Two4Tuesday. To say repost and tag me. Don't forget I will be doing a giveaway in December and the winner will be randomly drawn from the #Two4Tuesday respondents.

My answers:
🧡 No, though I do know a few phrases in several languages.
🖤 Yes, just the basics so I can ask a few things.

veritysalter I can speak French poorly, but enough to get by. I always try to learn hello, goodbye, please and thank you of the language of where I‘m visiting. 4w
TheSpineView @veritysalter Totally agree that a few basic phrases are a must... especially please and thank you which goes a long way. 4w

1. I have my physical tbr that I see everyday, then I have one in here that‘s a mix of books I want and books I own and then there‘s the one in my head.

2. I‘m a mood reader so mostly what I feel like reading, but since I started using the library again I also need to think about when books are due back.

My answers:

📖 The Bronze Horseman was recommended to me by several friends. One in particular insisted I read it. I just didn't get the hype from the blurb. It ended up being one of my all time favorites.
📖 I need to reread LOR. I reread The Hobbit but never got around to the rest.

1. I started regular reading in May this year so it was only 40 books till year end. But I'm happy coz I have already completed 27 and currently reading 2 more😊

1. Last year I read 24 books, this year I‘m already on 75, so quantity is not a factor. I guess reducing the size of my TBR would be good (I seem to be adding books faster than I‘m reading them🙄)

2. Continuing to focus on eating sensibly and losing weight. No specific target in mind, just want to keep losing til I‘m happy with what I see in the mirror.

And I've been to Copenhagen, where the Carl Mørk novels take place, but it's more like "oh cooool now I know what it looks like here..." Aaaand I got some inspiration from books.

📘 All the time. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and seeing what others have to say.

Bookwormjillk On Litsy and LibraryThing sometimes, but I‘m thinking about bringing my blog back. 5mo
ljuliel I try to review on Amazon mainly, because I depend a lot on reviews in there when purchasing books. 5mo

TheSpineView @ljuliel I read the reviews too. 😊 5mo
rretzler I would like to write reviews and usually start each year doing so, but then find I‘m spending more time reviewing and tracking than I am reading and give up reviewing. (Sometimes it can be difficult for me to get my thoughts on paper and it can be an almost painful process). Litsy has been easier to keep up with. When I do review, it‘s on LibraryThing, GoodReads, and Amazon. I‘d like to start a blog, but I think that‘s probably a pipe dream! 5mo
TheSpineView @rretzler It is a trade off on time.😊 5mo
rretzler I do read reviews for books I‘m considering, but have become frustrated with Amazon‘s reviews and only read the bad reviews. It seems that almost every book is rated above a 4 and I reserve anything above a 4 for very special books. I‘m in the 75er‘s group on LT and read reviews from my friends there and read reviews of certain friends on GoodReads. I don‘t really read any blogs anymore as I find most bloggers focus on LitFic and I prefer genre 5mo
rretzler Which is not to say that there is anything wrong with blogging and LitFic blogs - I‘m not panning them in anyway since I would love to also blog. I used to keep up with a bunch of blogs, but as with reviewing, keeping up with blogs takes time away from my reading. And reading for me is everything!🤣 5mo
TheSpineView @rretzler Yes, reading is the most important thing. 5mo
