Weekly update #7: Hooray for Nikkei Bunko!

I’m up to 154,786 words, which is around 25,000 more words than I had last week, and it’s all thanks to Nikkei Bunko providing me with a healthy supply of level 3/4 books. At the moment the books I like best are books written for first and second graders, level 3 books by my system, that have between 1,000 and 3,000 words; I predict that by the time I reach 250,000 – 300,000 words, I’ll stop looking specifically for those kinds of books.

I’ve started tutoring a friend of mine in Japanese; aside from some words she’s picked up from anime, she’s a complete beginner. I want to try extensive reading as part of what she’s learning right from the start, in some capacity or another, so I expect I’ll have a lot to say about that in the upcoming months.

Also, my tadoku friend Emmie has agreed to do the most wonderful thing for me! She’ll let me order books online and have them sent to her, then when they reach a certain amount, pack them up and ship them to me, after which I’ll pay her back for shipping. There are a lot of used books online that are so cheap that even after shipping, the total price still isn’t bad at all! I’m so excited about this it’s ridiculous.

    What is the life for if it were not for anything ridiculous!?^^

    アマゾンで古本を買うと、250円送料がかかるけど、book-off online なら1500円以上で無料です。
    ここに買ってみたい本があるか、探してみるといいかも。
