Author of WICKER PARK WISHES, a novel, published by Eckhartz Press "It's like 'Hi Fidelity' from a woman's perspective. A 90s book about relationships." - John Siuntres, WordBalloon. Language discussion and expression, a view from the city: "A fascinating and enlightening look at language and other important matters" - Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune "...definitely an interesting voice!" - Languagehat.com "...a great site!" - Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement
I'm very happy (or "chuffed", as the Brits would say) because I finished another 島耕作 (Shima Kosaku) manga. It's a big deal to me because it was 220 pages, and I managed to read it pretty consistently, though it took me a few months. I bought it after I finished reading the other manga.
It was very good, and included some interesting situations that you wouldn't see in the typical salaryman's life, but that's why it's fiction :D
I'm planning on getting another one, probably next week. I'm thinking of reading the very first one of the series, when he first enters the company, which was over 20 years ago.
Meanwhile, I'm still working my way through a Japanese book about Twitter, which seems totally dry compared to the manga I've been reading.
