Books read in November 2014

:bulletblue: Mrs Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf
Another title from this semester's reading list. I'm focusing a lot on the English reading list (which isn't exactly compulsory), and not much on the main reading list (mostly nonfiction about books and book publishing) (it isn't compulsory either but it is arguably more important). Overall, I liked this book, even though I found it a bit boring and hard to follow at times (because of the Stream of Consciousness structure).

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, Mostly Harmless), by Douglas Adams (Reread)
I decided to reread those on an impulse, for a break in the series of old classics. It had been a while since I last read these books, so I rediscovered them and I laughed almost as much as last time. I can't help drawing a parallel between this series and the works of Lewis Carroll. I think there is a similarity in the way the two authors play with language and logic. Also, forty-two.

:bulletblue: Pokémon Adventures French re-release book 3
This corresponds to the end of the Yellow arc. It ends with a "To be continued ?", meaning that the publishing company hasn't decided whether or not to republish the GSC arc as well, or possibly that they have already decided not to. I have no idea how well this re-release sold, so... ^^" However, the Ruby/Sapphire arc will be (re?)published. I think I'm going to read scanlations of the GSC arc and then read everything in chronological order. (On a side-note, I don't like the reason Green gives for Yellow to pretend to be a boy. Is the Pokémon universe so misogynistic that a very small boy will be taken more seriously than a very small girl? I prefer to think that Green was just kidding and the real reason was that it would be easier for Yellow to hide her real identity/origin if she dressed as the opposite gender. This way, it still makes sense... I hope this part is a mistranslation or something, because it really looks out of place IMO.

Books: 50/52 (+7)
Week: 48/52
I'm nearly there! ^_^

Anime challenge status

As it turns out, I'm dropping this challenge, due to other priorities (school, InternationalFAQ, this season's anime as opposed to old ones...). I still have a few series on my to-watch list but I want to watch them at a slower pace, without feeling that I have to. Overall, I enjoyed doing this challenge, but lately it's not been as fun as it used to be, it's become a "should" as opposed to a "want" and that's obviously not a good thing. Of course, I will still let you know if a series makes a strong impression on me or when I officially get done with my to-watch list. ^_^
