I did make some challenge goals, but I like to follow my reading whims so some things were less of a focus than I thought they would be. By far my most prose reading came from Japanese HP, which has been so so good for my reading speed and comprehension. I’m not exactly breezing through it, but it gets easier with every reading session and I’ve actually learned quite a few kanji from it as well since it has partial furigana. According to the kindle page count, the amount I read is somewhere around 120 pages!! Woah! So that plus Fushigi puts my prose page count in the 150 range for this challenge. Nice!

I’m still finding Fushigi Sweet Shop enjoyable, have been playing around with different reading methods. Lower lookup methods seem to work well for this pick since the stories follow predictable formats. It’s also a paper read so the barrier to lookups is higher.

I thought I’d read one story a day and finish the folktales reader in less than a month, but obviously I didn’t! Haha, oops. I’ll get there eventually.

I finished 4 manga volumes this challenge, which is the same number as last challenge. However, with the exception of ookami-chan, the manga I read this challenge was more difficult!
