My birthday is coming up and naturally I’m looking forward to my birthday presents (books!). Unfortunately since my family doesn’t have unlimited resources they need to limit the number of presents (books!) I get. Here’s my dilemma: I need a dictionary to read my French historic mysteries (or rather would very much like a dictionary) but unfortunately dictionaries are expensive and if I got one that would most likely be it. No more books this birthday. So I said I’ll do without the new dictionary for now. Which is hard if I don’t find my old high school dictionary but I guess reading those mysteries can wait. Especially since I don’t have all that much time to read anyway.
