To catch up

August 13, 2009 at 10:31 pm (Books, School) (, , )

I know it’s been longer than a week since my last post, but with all that has been going on, I haven’t really thought about it.
The summer seems to be nearing the end. School starts back up in a few weeks, and I’m still not done with C++ or my books.
So far I’ve done four chapters of C++ coding. Fun, if not tedious (The effects of little errors and the need for exact punctuation and capitalization can be frustrating, or forgetting that one little tiny semi-colon).
Other than that I’ve done a lot of my Japanese work, and can recognize a few characters from Hirigana right off the bat. Though my speaking of it needs more work… Katakana is a whole other story.
I read The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, the first book in the “Night Angel” Trilogy.
Great. Book.
Though I’m not a fan of the cliffhanger, I love the characters and the storyline.
I won’t spoil any of it, but I have to say many things were not expected.
I love the darker tone to the book, it’s a change from the classic fantasy types that I’ve read.
Next I’m going to read Treasure Island by Louis Stevenson.
Most people should know this book, and I’m pretty interested in what it has to offer.
