What is this blog all about?

The main purpose of this blog is to give an overview of the things I do, in my everyday life, in order to improve my English. Since I am a very lazy person, I mostly read, and watch movies, and do things which make it possible for me to improve my vocabulary, my grammar and my accent without getting bored... So this blog is going to be about the books I read, the movies I watch, and some other things which I find relevant (or not)...

I hope you'll like it! Don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any suggestions concerning what I should write about!!

I shot the sheriff

Guess what, reader?? (you still there, reader? I haven't written in quite a while, so I hope you're still hanging on!) I should be working again! I should be working very hard, as a matter of fact, and instead, I have been reading a book which was in English, so I hope it counts a little bit as work. Let's say it will improve my English and thus help me pass my exams. Who knows. Sweet dreams. Anyway...

I have been reading books, as I said, and more particularly one book which my sister F gave to me, and which was really great. The reason why she gave it to me was that it was written by the famous Hugh Laurie, whom I have already mentioned on this blog a few times, because he is also known for playing the infamous Dr House. The one with the cane and the evil lines. The brilliant one who always figures it out in the end. Well, he wrote a book. Or rather, the actor wrote a book.

It's areally cool book, and it's real fun to read. It's very interesting and keeps you riveted from beginning to end. And aslo it made me laugh out loud on the train. Which is nice and doesn't happen too often, but not so nice, because afterwards, people look at you as if you were a madwoman. I think I am know by train users in Alsace as "the madwoman who sneezes all the time". They must love me. Allergic to the train's air conditionning system, I guess... Anyway. Back to "the Gunseller". Yeah, cause that's the name of the book, "The Gunseller". It's really fun, as I said, and it's about a guy who gets dragged into some international terrorism plot. It's not goofy and annoying, because it's a book and not a comic book. It's serious at times, and the hero is real cool. And it's very entertaining.

Now I've read it through, and bought a new book called "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen". Indeed. I shouldn't have. I bet it's going to be crappy. I'd better re-read Sense and Sensibility. But you never know. And besides, the cover is nice, there's a fake ribbon on it, and it appealed to my girly feelings. A nice change from international terrorism, I must say. But hell, you never know. I haven't even gotten started on it yet, so I'm going to give it a chance, I should not slander it even before I read a single page!

Well, reader, I've got to go now, and do a little work at last, before I have to get back to class (tonight's specialised theme. I like it, but it's from 18 to 20.30, and I'm already hungry, so forgive my lack of enthusiam, please.)

Have a nice evening!!

J'ai un super lien pour toi !

Je ne sais pas si ça se fait dans la net étiquette, de dumper des liens comme ça sur les blogs des gens, mais celui-là, il est trop cool ! Les liens sont bien, et même les titres des photos (faut laisser la souris dessus, pour qu'ils apparaissent) sont marrants !

Bref, je pouvais pas attendre, donc je le mets là !
