I was wondering how "An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese" compares to the Genki series. Thanks.
It's similar, but it takes things to a new level. The emphasis is placed on improving reading ability. The grammar explanations and overall structure of the book are similar to Genki and I think that's a positive thing.
For an entertaining reader, I would recommend Janet Ashby's "Read Real Japanese" published by Kodansha. You could probably find it at your local bookstore too. It's a collection of short essays by well-known contemporary Japanese writers (like Banana Yoshimoto, Haruki Murakami, and even Ryuichi Sakamoto), and as such is infinitely more engaging.

I would like to ask if there are some other recommended intermediate level-textbooks available than "An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese". It seems to be out of print in most places. I have book for kanji but I'm missing a textbook to take things further...
