You may have noticed I haven’t been doing a lot of book reading lately. I’ve been playing around with a program for reading foreign texts as well as spending a lot of time studying and listening to Mandarin. But my bookshelf is getting a little lonely. It’s already a few days into December, but I plan on getting through at least three books that have been on my queue for a while now.
Last month was yet another Tadoku contest, but I actually didn’t get much reading done. I’ve been busy with several projects but that’s all I can say about that right now. Anyways, I got through a great novel and some manga, in addition to all the reading that can’t be logged in 読書メーター. As always, you can find my thoughts on the stories below the links.
About a month ago I was contacted by a company looking for people to test its new app for learning Japanese vocabulary. I jumped at the chance to try a new tool and I agreed to write a fair, balanced review for the app in the hopes that others would become aware of a new tool in the Japanese learning arsenal. Then I got really sick and didn’t do anything for over a month. But now that I’m feeling better, I’ll go ahead and post this review.
Yesterday I went to Book-Off (again)!
I didn’t get a lot of book reading done last month. I blame Wikipedia and Japanese mythological creatures for being so interesting.
To celebrate my 100th post here, I’ve decided to share the 100 things I’ve enjoyed in/about the Japanese language. These are manga, songs, games, books, learning resources, websites, videos, and podcasts. Those of you who check the blog regularly will recognize a few of these. Here’s to hoping you get something new out of it!
