Don Quixote

This book is very thick. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. I have this one, the complete and unabridged version. It was recommended to me, I thought it was good so I bought it anyways. I wanted to buy Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (the Indonesian version), but I eventually bought this one. I got it like two years ago, and I have never finished it since then. I probably have read one-third of the book. It is a classic novel, and I have to think twice (or maybe more) when reading it because of the language. Reading English books should be fine with me, but for classic novels, sometimes I have to read the sentences more than once or skip some words because I am lazy to look them up in dictionary, heheh. As long as I get the point, that is. Then I can enjoy it.

Been two years and I don't know when I will continue it. Laziness is the thing. I have some books I haven't finished reading, among others are Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad (one of the reasons I bought it was because it tells about Semarang, my city, hahah) and Kebangkitan by Leo Tolstoy (the translated version of Resurrection). Both are pretty boring I guess. But I surely want to finish reading them. I just don't know when. Oh well...
