Wow! Great stuff. I have been busy upgrading the shopping cart.

What if Clay could get the books for us, and we order them from the order site of the Japanese page? Then we could be supporting the Japanese page while we studied. Would that be doable?


Actually, I will be happy to import any title and offer it to everyone at cost. Unfortunately after shipping it to Florida, the actual cost is usually at or more than the cover (depends on the publisher a little). But most 100 page novels aren't too expensive maybe 400-500 yen.

If we could come up with several titles, I can start getting them coming. Having ISBN numbers are the easiest, but if not, titles are fine. It will take 1-3 months for the books to come in.

Also how many people would be interested in a copy?

Sounds like fun. I really need to start reading again. I am pretty lazy, so it would be nice to read 'with' others. ;)

I just saw the link on the main page and I came to check it out. This is an excellent idea and I hope I can still get in. If this is still open for membership I would like to get into the "C-group".

This is an awesome idea. Please put me in Group C if membership is still open.

I have been reading this story 泣いた赤おに. It was recommended by my Japanese friends. Apparently, this story is very famous. I haven't gotten far in it because I need to use my dictionary constantly. Hopefully I will get through it.

Cheers

Im going to assume that there is still time to join up, and if so i would very much like to to so...
I guess that i would count as group C also..

Will i have to do something more, or is that enough, am i in?
I haven't really read any of the rules in the aforementioned "trial-thread", i suppose i will do that now, and hope that i dont find any catches, as i need a new way of studying after the same technique for weeks now.. :)

皆で一緒に読むには、ちょっと辛いかもしれませんが、
関西弁の本を読む前に、東京と関西の違いを知りたい人に、
大谷晃一 著『大阪学』をご紹介します。
http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~fa4n-yskw/main/K-Ohtani.htm

文庫本のカバーには以下のような宣伝文句があります。
---------------
不法駐車で道を塞ぎ、日常会話がすでにボケとツッコミ。
うどんの美学を熱く語り、商売上手。ド派手な格好して、
とりあえず値切り、合理的で非社会的。マクド? レイコー?
全国に跋扈する大阪人の感覚って一体? 習慣、言葉、歴史、
文学等、様々な角度から謎に満ちた不思議の都市、大阪を
知的に愉快に明快に読み解く。出張のお供に、転勤、転校の
バイブルに、一冊どないでっか?
----------------------
文庫: 228 p ; サイズ(cm): 15 x 11
出版社: 新潮社 ; ISBN: 4101382212 ; (1996/12)

大学での授業を基礎にした東西論なので、
大阪の歴史と文化、東京人との違いなどが一緒に学べます。
10章立てですが、一項目が1〜3ページなので、区切やすいと思います。

* 東京人は「MacDonald」をマックと略し、大阪人は「マクド」と略します。東京人は冷たいコーヒーを「アイスコーヒー」と呼ぶのが一般的ですが大阪では「レイコー」と呼ぶのが一般的なのだそうです。

読者は対象は大学生以上、という印象です。
内容がちょっとマニアックなので、目次から見当をつけて、ご興味のある人は個人的にどうぞ。
私もこの本を持っていますので(13刷)、不明な点があればお答えできるかもしれません。

(小説は、個人の好みや年齢層が分からないとなかなか紹介しづらいというのが正直なところです。お好みの分野を教えていただければ、本をご紹介できると思います)
