Shelfie: what does your bookshelf say about you?

Posted by Cat Ramos

Yeah, I don’t do selfies. I do shelfies and my bookshelf screams: language NERD! As if that needs any confirmation.

I still have more books and stuff for languages like Spanish, German and Korean but I have them in a box in the laundry cage and I am too lazy to dig them up ^^;;

You might be wondering: where are the dictionaries? I don’t use paper dictionaries anymore. I used to have one for every new language I study but they take up too much space on my shelves (and on the bed, now that I think about it) and in my bag. Now I only use dictionary apps like the ones made by Ascendo. They have free dictionaries for German, Spanish, French and Italian with in-app purchase options. I upgraded my French one and it is so useful! I have the different verb conjugations and audio pronunciation. Now if only someone will make a nice dictionary app for Hungarian…

First tier: my materials from HungarianPod101 (I have a paid account), Assimil French, language notebook, various odds and ends. I realize that because of my not-so-good handwriting, the text on my binder can be misread as “Hungarian Poo 101″. 😀 It’s POD, as in PODCAST 🙂 I am not in the business of writing about, you know, feces.

Second tier: French, Dutch, Italian, Japanese. “Siddharta” is the odd one out in this tier. I don’t have anywhere to put it and I am reading it anyway so I want it to always be within reach.


Third tier: French, Hungarian, Japanese
