grapefruitcake asked about my bookshelf a while back and I know nadinenihongo also had a ‘share your bookshelf’ thing going a while back.
Here are my Japanese textbooks. These shots show hardly any of the fiction, sorry, I actually couldn’t get that on the shelves in any presentable way whatsoever so gave up. There’s just too much stuff because I am a Book Off addict. Almost all of these books I’ve bought used.
So, have I read them, have I used them? Yeah, in the most part, I have. Maybe not cover to cover, as I tend to dip in and out of textbooks. I haven’t tackled any of the N2 stuff yet and am working my way through the N3 over this year. I haven’t read much of the fiction yet aside from the graded readers, but am starting to get to the point where I can understand more so am getting more into it day by day.
The daruma was a valentine’s gift from my BF, he said I should draw on one eye when I get N3 and the other when I get N2. I know this is non traditional, but he’s Japanese and that’s what he said I should do with this daruma when he gave me it. Looking at it reminds me to stay focused. This year he made me bookmarks. He’s very supportive of my studying and very tolerant of my used book obsession.
I’m going to go and put back my shelf into the double layered nightmare it was before because my floor is covered with books that won’t fit in with it like this.
