Reading Abroad

The number of books I read monthly has varied since summer 2016 when I began reading books from other countries translated into English, the only language I understand. This pains me when I’m abroad without much to read and the only bookstores I can find are non-English, like the one below in France. I spent an hour at this store looking at the covers, imagining what the books were about.

The languages I would most like to be fluent in are Korean, Japanese and Chinese. I have downloaded language apps to help with this. Downloaded them, but never used them. Because learning a language is hard.
