【日本語】Yet Another Reading Challenge

I love reading, so much so that I originally made a typo when writing the title: “Read Another Reading Challenge”. I also like challenges. It’s one of the many reasons I took up Japanese in the first place.

But this one is waaay more intense than any of my other previous challenges, uh, challenge.

the goal

 

Read all the books I checked-out from the school library.

The goal has since changed. Read about why here.

the deadline

December 17th, the day these books are all due for return.

the books

  • ルート225 by 藤野千夜 (282 pages)
  • 北斎殺人事件 by 高橋克彦 (446 pages)
  • 王国記, 王国記2, and 王国記3 by 花村萬月 (259, 268, 284 pages, respectively)
  • フルハウス by 柳美里 (189 pages)
  • 現代短編小説選 2005~2009 by various authors (260 pages)
  • 東京タワー by 江國香織(297 pages)
  • レベレ7by 宮部みゆき (664 pages!!!)
9 books. 2,949 pages… I think.
In less than 3 Months.
It’ll be the most book reading I’ve ever done in such a short period.

Why is this a challenge?

 

Because I do a lot of reading, but it is often on the net.
I use books as my reading while walking to class or riding a train.  I almost never read books while sitting in my room. That’s time for variety shows, net surfing, dramas, and DIVINA[1]
Needless to say, I don’t really do any speed runs. Until now!
Also these will be the longest books I’ve ever read in Japanese.
But it’s okay because I can’t wait to start Level 7.  It looks so intense.
Actually all the books are pretty intense.

In fact, these books are so intense that I got a paper cut from trying to take them off my shelf.

Intense.
