News and thank yous

So, today I sat what apparently was my senior last final! Which means that next year I’ll only be doing a subject and my literature research. Words cannot express my happiness right now 🙂

I would like to thank you all for wishing me good luck and keeping me engaged in book-talking during these finals, because blogging has definitely been my escape. This proves that not only reading, but blogging too, are a really important part of my life, and so are you all out there: reading, commenting and blogging.

Now, for my last final I was so stressed I decided I needed a crime novel, as I told someone “with lots of blood” and – lucky me! – found The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for 10 € (aprox. $12) in a more than acceptable paperback edition. I obviously bought it. This was last Saturday, now I expect to start reading more and more each day. By now, I am slowly meeting characters and setting everything ready. I am suprised that the author was a pacifist and wrote what many describe, as the best crime novel.

I also made some improvement in my life – inspired by some of you – and started running. Surprise, surprise, I still run quite a lot thanks to my high school running (5,8 km the other day) so I’m super proud of myself and wishing to start running every each day this summer.

How great is Summer 2012 going to be? Can’t wait to share it all.

    Congrats on your last final, now summer can start in earnest. I have the Girl with the Dragon tattoo on my TBR pile but can’t bring myself to reading it. At least not now. I will be looking forward to your review.
    As for running, great! I just hate running and could never do it, but I am planning to get started again next week with my regular exercise.

      Thanks, Rikki! I am loving it so far, both the time for reading and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!

      I went running today again and it makes reading much more enjoyable: it helps to get rid of stiffness and tiredness. Good luck with your exercise, as I read in Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP: the trick is “sticktoitvness” 🙂

Don't forget to share what you think!
