Hey folks, I decided to start doing some heavy reading in Japanese. A book called ningen no kankei (Human Relations) by Hiroyuki Itsuki. He (yes, I thought Hiroyuki was a dame’s name at first; I was wrong) is apparently quite popular in Japan, mostly for his fiction, but lately he has been writing more philosophically-oriented things.
Anyway, as I read this, I write down new words I have to look up to help me learn the words, making the reading go (hopefully) faster as I go along and learn the vocabulary. I noticed that google documents lets you share documents with anyone through a link, so I thought “hey, if helping others is easy and convenient, why the hell not?” So, if you want to go down the same fool-hardy path as me, I believe this will be a GREAT help for you. I look up almost all the kanji-containing words I see.
