:white_flower:Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar ๆ—ฅๆœฌ่ชžๅŸบๆœฌๆ–‡ๆณ•่พžๅ…ธใƒปpg 65
Finished Section 9. Iโ€™ve noticed a lot of the examples in this book are examples of things you shouldnโ€™t say rather than helpful illustrations, at least in the parts before the entries. The actual dictionary part seems way more helpful while the introductory parts feel more like the authors are trying to sound smart. The Intermediate Dictionary seems to have more of this problem with using complicated words and academic speech rather than language that is easy to understand. Again, the actual entries seem to not have this problem.

Finished volume 2! I was planning on reading till 80% but I kept thinking โ€œmight as well go 5% more,โ€ then eventually, โ€œwell Iโ€™m pretty much at the end might as well finish itโ€. I thought my reading endurance had gotten better lately but apparently this was pushing it, I think I used up the entirety of my brainโ€™s energy for the day.

:green_square: NANA 1 (62% โ†’ 100%)

First book of the challenge completed! By the end of the volume, I realized that I still really enjoy the world of NANA: Ai Yazawa has such an eye for fashion, and I find myself sympathetic toward her characters. I have several more volumes, but Iโ€™ll probably take a break from the series for now and move on to something else. @ChristopherFritz mentioned in the Bookwalker Freebie thread that volumes 1 to 18 of ๅๆŽขๅตใ‚ณใƒŠใƒณ are free to read for a couple or so weeks, so I might try and get through at least volume 2 of that.

My Tokyo Treat box arrived today, and I had the ramen for dinner. When reading the instructions on the plastic wrapper (they were worded differently on the lid), it took me a bit to realize that โ€œๆณจใŽใƒ•ใ‚ฟโ€ isnโ€™t one word but ๆณจใŽ being used like the ใฆ-form and ใƒ•ใ‚ฟ being the first word of the second clause. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve seen that particular connective form without a comma after it before lol

  • ๆœˆๅˆŠๅฐ‘ๅฅณ้‡ŽๅดŽใใ‚“ issue 19-20, finishing vol 2!
  • ch 2 of xxxHOLiC vol 5 through the end of the volume. Seems even though the hydrangea story stuck with me, literally none of the details did lmao the dead girl being buried beneath the hydrangea was coincidence; my thinking hydrangeas grow where dead bodies are was my own misunderstanding after the fact. Iโ€™m pretty sure there is that superstition around spider lilies, though (at least the red ones)
  • 26 pages of ใ‚ตใƒžใƒผใ‚ตใ‚คใƒ€ใƒผ, leaving off on pg 255. Hooo, something Iโ€™ve suspected is looking like itโ€™s true. And Iโ€™m not sure if this way or the other way it coulda gone is better. Theyโ€™re both messed up.
Some vocab of note:

็…™็ฎก (ใ‚ญใ‚ปใƒซ) [n.] tobacco pipe with a metal-tipped stem. Loanword from Cambodia (I assume Khmer? Goo just says ใ‚ซใƒณใƒœใ‚ธใ‚ข)โ€” โ€œkhsierโ€
ใƒ“ใƒ“ใ‚Š่™ซ (ใƒ“ใƒ“ใ‚Šใ‚€ใ—) [n.] scaredy cat; โ€˜fraidy cat. I actually didnโ€™t find it in Shirabe or even Goo when I checked (I wanted to bookmark it), but it was clear from context what it meant.
ๆ•ดๅฝขๅค–็ง‘ (ใ›ใ„ใ‘ใ„ใ’ใ‹) [n.] orthopedic surgery
ๆ˜จๆ—ฅใฎไปŠๆ—ฅ (ใใฎใ†ใฎใใ‚‡ใ†) [expression] only yesterday; right on the heels of yesterday
่‡ชๅทฑ้ก•็คบๆฌฒ (ใ˜ใ“ใ‘ใ‚“ใ˜ใ‚ˆใ) [n.] craving for the limelight
ใ“ใขใ‚“ใพใ‚Š [ใจ-adv., ใ™ใ‚‹-verb] snugly; neatly; compactly; cosily. The ใข may also be spelled as ใ˜.
็”ทๅฅฝใ (ใŠใจใ“ใšใ) [n., ใฎ-adj.] attractive to men; in a style (appearance, look, etc.) that men fall for

Like every day around ten pages of ใƒœใƒƒใ‚ณใกใ‚ƒใ‚“, some pages in magazines and continued playing Sacrifice of the Abyss.

Seriously the game is full of kanji not on wanikani. I probably would have gone crazy already if I didnโ€™t have my electronic dictionary and could just scribble kanji on the screen and the device would recognize them.

Miki found a girl covered in blood behind the closed door. The girl screamed for help and lost her consciousness. Miki searched the unconscious girl and discovered that her name is Anastasia. Miki decided to search for something like a first aid kit to help. She found a map of the area and there is a infirmary nearby but how does she get there?

and iโ€™ve now finished kikiโ€™s delivery service!! this was something that i really, really struggled with when i started it last year, to the point iโ€™m pretty sure it sent me into a brief burnout spiral, but now look! three chapters in three days and iโ€™ve finished the whole thing. so for people who are maybe worrying that theyโ€™re not getting anywhere, or reading something that feels impossible and/or draining now, it will get easier and one day, youโ€™ll come back to it and be really proud of how far youโ€™ve come. ahem. too much for a wednesday afternoon? anyway :sweat_smile: now what on earth do i read for the rest of the week???

words that stood out: ๅฎ™่ฟ”(ใกใ‚…ใ†ใŒใˆ)ใ‚Š (somersault. was in the book as ๅฎ™(ใกใ‚…ใ†)ใŒใˆใ‚Š cos thereโ€™s so few kanji in this book istg), ๆฐ—(ใ)ใŒใใ (to be tasteful, to be sensible, to be tactful. also ๆฐ—(ใ)ใŒๅˆฉ(ใ)ใ), and ่ท(ใซ)ใฅใใ‚Š (packing, crating. also ่ท้€ (ใซใฅใ)ใ‚Š and ่ทไฝœ(ใซใฅใ)ใ‚Š).

Read a chapter from Konaโ€™s Adventures today (from Satori Reader). Kona was thinking back to his early childhood and it ended up being a slightly sad episode :pleading_face:

After two days of Sakura and Suzukiโ€™s story, I found this one quite diffiult.

No words today because Iโ€™m too tired TT

Travelling for the first time in a while to look at some apts/job stuff, so I brought my kindle with me. If i have some extra time I might throw in a bit of ้ซ˜ๆœจใ•ใ‚“ later, since I never finished the volumes I had on there for this express purpose. I gave myself like an hour to read a chapter of your lie in april before I had to check out of the room, but even with some distractions ended up only needing about 30 minutes. Guess my reading speed is still improving!

  • ๅ™›(ใ‹)ใฟๅˆ(ใ‚)ใ† = to be in gear with; to mesh smoothly. Usually the opposite of ไบ’(ใŸใŒ)ใ„ใซใ‹ใฟใคใ, although can also mean this way.

:dango: Girl Friends : 11 โ†’ 30ish (the rest of chapter one)
:speech_balloon: Komi-san 3 : 1st chapter of volume 3
:books: The Practice by Seth Godin : a few more pages
:books: Furies of the Calderon by Jim Butcher (first book of the Codex Alera) : 1 chapter (so far today)

Girl Friends seems nice so far. I really like Mari-chanโ€™s thoughts and suspicions. :joy: Those make me really enjoy this so far. I do look up the words I need for this (mostly) and make sure I understand things. Because of the level of this, I can do that fairly easily.

But even easier is a pure extensive read, so I also started the third volume Komi-san and read one chapter.

A few pages of the Practice. It keeps being thought provoking which is why I only manage to read like 3-4 pages each time. :joy:

And finally for the first time in a while Iโ€™m starting a new novel in English (Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher). Well I say new, but it is actually a reread. I read this series about the time it was coming out, so 15-20 years agoโ€ฆ O_O

So I guess it was time for my first reread, huh? xD

:white_flower: ADoBJG - Characteristics of Japanese Grammar p.57-60, Viewpoint
:deciduous_tree: Tobira - chp. 2 ่ชญใฟ็‰ฉ parts 1-3

While all this material is keeping me busy, it doesnโ€™t feel like I am increasing my reading skills. Iโ€™m definitely gonna have to add something else to this as well. Iโ€™ve finished the reading for this week for ADoBJG at least, so weโ€™ll see.

I started reading ็†็”ฑ by ๅฎฎ้ƒจใฟใ‚†ใ, another ๆŽจ็†ๅฐ่ชฌ. Thanks @Belerith for lending it to me even before you get to read it :slight_smile:
I really like the writing style a lot so far.
(commenting on writing style only) The author is like a distant observer, interviewing the characters. It feels like a TV show in my head, with cuts, narration, and interspersed dialogue. Sheโ€™s like this interviewer coming out of nowhere that doesnโ€™t really exist in the story, and there is no explanation in what situation the witnesses / characters gave these statements. They just do. Itโ€™s really cool.
And then the author is also like โ€žWell, which event came first? This one or this one? Letโ€™s check the security camera footage to find out!โ€œ, or โ€žThis question of whether the eye witness report was correct or not would become a big point of contention later, but for now weโ€˜ll not concern ourselves with that.โ€œ or โ€žWe took a bit of a detour there with that long explanation; now letโ€™s get back to the night of the crimeโ€œ. It really pulls you along.

But the font is so tiny! And the book is 600 pages! 19 x 41 = 779 characters on one page, while other books I own are more in the 16 x 40 = 640 character range. On the picture it doesnโ€™t look like such a big difference, but the page definitely feels more โ€žcrampedโ€œ.

I have this; I got about 90 pages in and stalled out (more because of finding other books shorter and more tempting than any issue with the book itself). I really should get back to it, but probably not before Iโ€™m done with ใƒฌใƒ™ใƒซ7. The choice of how to depict the story is definitely an interesting one.

Yeah :partying_face: I finished the 3 (currently) free volumes. Iโ€™d say the story was okayโ€ฆish. But not so good, that I would want to pay money to buy the next volumes. :woman_shrugging:


So now I โ€œhave toโ€ read Conan. Since the first 18(?) volumes are free now xD I already bought the first one some time ago and I am currently around the half way point. But it would be nice to read at least one or two further volumes during their free time.

Then again I still need to catch up in A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar and in 999. But both is not so easy to do for me compared to just reading a manga on my phone inbetween :sweat_smile:
