English version

12th-18th January

The end of week three of the Reading Project. Here's what I've read this week:

Japanese Reader Collection Volume 1: Hikoichi (Clay & Yumi Boutwell)

An unexpectedly good and entertaining reader. The collection is well-judged, simple and a familiar genre, but still flavourful. It presents the text in three formats: Japanese with notes, Japanese only, and English gloss. I found the annotated version was enough to check the odd word or expression, then read the plain Japanese for practice, and only used the English to confirm once I'd read each story. The annotations were clear and helpful.

Mega Fauna (re. Jeffrey Ellis)

A fun and varied collection of stories. They're generally light in tone, but range from cute little bits of fun to improving tales or mini-adventures. Some tickled me more than others, but it was all good stuff.


I read 3 books, I began the week with 153, so 151 are left over. Not really up to scratch - I need to be reading three a week.
