Spring has come and Ukrainian is back on my list <3

I've seen that there's a challenge for doing GLOSS lessons, and as a huge fan of the site I'm going to do one in each of my languages available. But right now I'm behind on reading LOTR, so I'll just anticipate the time when I get around to this and make a list of the lessons I plan to do.


French: Green IT. As I only do it because of my job, I choose topics that are relevant for it.
Portuguese: América Downgrades Fluminense with a Fantastic Performance! One of the few football lessons I've not done yet.
+ Spanish: River Plate: A Teetering Giant. Same.
German: A New Sculpture for Hamburg. My fave city, yay!
+ Serbian: What is it that Goes on in the World of Sports?
+ Croatian: About the History of Ston, Salt and Salt-making. Been staring at the title for like forever, time to finally do it!
Indonesian: Save Others. About first aid.


oops. finally got started on this, wasn't motivated to read 1-2 pages for an hour during Tadoku.
did the Croatian lesson today:)
let's say my goal for the 6WC is at least 30 GLOSS lessons (Croatian and Serbian), preferably 50 (counting the totals maybe, like Portuguese, Spanish, Indonesian too...)
my goal for the year was 100 lessons each in Serbian and Croatian, and 100 total for the rest. right now the count is 2, 3, 4 respectively and I guess the first goal is to reach 10 in each of these.

as stated in the viking thread, another goal is 25 hours of Scandinavian languages. or at least 20.

Not doing so well with those goals. Polish and Portuguese continue to rule my world.
I also watched football in Catalan a couple of days ago. And hrhenry mentioned twitter so I found some twitter accounts through him (more links are very welcome!!!!)

So Catalan is back on my Studies: list.

I also switched Croatian and Belarusian to intermediate. Never been a true beginner in them but now I feel comfortable calling myself intermediate.

Added Swedish to my hit list, added the reasons and I already have more than for German. This was the 24th language in my profile, so I also added Estonian and my reasons to learn it... and I realized it might be more useful than I thought in my quest.

Happy birthday to me :P :)))
I got an e-reader despite repeatedly saying I don't need/want one. Any site recs for paid e-books? I know only fnac.pt and ibs.it.
Do I get it right that the kindle versions from amazon can't be read on other devices?

There's livrariacultura.com.br and saraiva.com.br . Be sure to check if you can buy from
there to display in Russia. I'm afraid at Saraiva you can't, but try at livrariacultura .

Parabéns, feliz aniversário!

When I buy a book in .mobi format from Amazon, I am able to read it on my PC, kindle, and iPad. or do you
have some other device in mind?
