I know it is a little geeky, but I like the sound of Dictionary Day (October 16th)… regular followers of my blog will know I have a penchant for learning new words and word puzzles.
So why am I talking about holidays?
I have just started my long awaited 3 week winter holiday (yes it does sometimes get cold in Australia) and I have set myself some reading goals:
1. I am going to read my first ever Tolstoy – Anna Karenina. I have never before embarked on reading such a long book. I am reading it on my Kindle so that I will not need to carry a brick, but the book description says it is around 1000 pages!
The only slight downside of holidays is that I my audiobooks will have to wait for a little while, because I will not be sitting listening to them in my car while stuck in peak hour traffic – I think I will manage
But the absolute best thing about being on holidays is that it really does not matter how many of these I find the time to read – holidays are for making plans and then breaking them!
