It’ll be fun, after I’ve gotten vol 3 of ハイキュー!! and I’ve got them all, to sit down and see how many I can read in a day when I’ve got nothing else I gotta do. iirc it took me about 4 hrs to read vol 2? So unless it starts getting wearing, I should be able to manage 4. Unless it was 5 hrs, in which case it would be 3… Ahh but I’m happy I’m starting to get to the point where I can spend all day reading, even if I can’t read as much as I can in English yet.
Busy today, so I didn’t have much time to read. One of my stops was to B&N, where I picked up a couple novels as well as vol 3 of Play It Cool, Guys—the first two vol of which were on one of their “Read With Pride” endcap displays for some reason? lol? I mean, I’d like 35 to become canon as much as the next guy, but I doubt it’s happening, and the only queer thing that has happened is when those two random schoolgirls mistook 14 for boyfriends—and vol 3 of Life Lessons With Uramichi-oniisan, because I’ve apparently decided I am gonna collect them both in both ENG and JP after all. That’s something like nine series decided… I’m not sure how many more to go. I also got a free bookmark with my purchase, but of course it’s a “Sign up for a B&N Mastercard today!” one that I don’t care about. At least I’m not exactly choosy about what I use as a bookmark—as long as it’s thin, flat, and won’t damage the book, it’s fair game—so whatever, I’ll still use it.
I read ch 2 of ＳとＮ. Natori has to take his two younger siblings to the zoo, and on the way there, he runs into Setoguchi, who joins them and helps him look after the kids. They’ve already been getting along marginally better since the end of the last chapter, so there isn’t too much trouble. They exchange LINE info so that they can stay in contact when they separate to each take a twin to see their favorite animal again, and Natori agrees readily enough but then is like しまったあああああああ and decides he can always block him later. He does not. Though he does send a sticker of a bear that looks like it’s either giving a thumbs-up or flipping him off lmao (I feel like it’s more likely flipping him off. Setoguchi’s still excited either way just to receive a reply from him though.)
