This and That

Long time, no write.  I'm not very good at this "updating my blog" thing, but I'm still learning languages - that's something I'll never stop doing.  I've bought a ton of used (and a couple new) language books from Amazon, as well as a few from Etsy.  I love old language books, even if it's a language I'm not learning.  I recently ordered an old Teach Yourself Russian, as well as a Bulgarian-English dictionary from Etsy.  Can't wait to get them.  They're probably overpriced, as many things on Etsy are, but I just think they look cool and am glad I snatched them up before someone else did.  ;)  

As for what I've been up to in the world of language learning...over the last couple days, I've been focusing on my Bulgarian.  A long time ago, I made individual blogs for each of my languages, but haven't posted anything to them.  I'd like to change that and start using them, so I'm going to try to add something short and sweet to my Bulgarian blog (keli-na-balgarski.blogspot.com), because as they say, Опитът прави майсторa.

In the meantime, here are the books mentioned above that I ordered.  Love the color of the Russian one, and can't wait to make use of the Bulgarian dictionary.  Who knows, maybe I'll give Russian a try afterall, though I definitely don't need to add a 10th language, and seeing as Bulgarian is supposed to be easier for English speakers, I'll most likely stick with that as my Cyrillic language of choice (along with Serbian.)

I'll put up some more pictures of the books I've purchased over the months in upcoming posts. The oldest is a Dutch-German dictionary from the late 1800's, but most are from the 1940's on.
