Any questions? Just ask.

It has been quite some time since I last posted. 

Thanks to everyone who has read my small book of Japanese stories.  I've gotten some good comments although only one rating.  I hope more people will be able to find the book.  I would enjoy hearing everyone's comments.

If you would like, please become my friend on Facebook and let me know you are a reader.  I'm listed under my name, Richard Nigh, and I'm the one from Saipan and have a peace sign with Japanese words written across it as my avatar. 

The thing I like about the book is that it takes stories, some of which are really incomprehensible to non-Japanese, and makes them understandable.  It really was hard to stay away from religion, gods, miracles and the like, but I think I did as well as can be expected.  I was able to keep violence down to a minimum, and I think it is really one of the best books for introducing Japanese stories available.  If you haven't decided to read it, it is still very inexpensive. 

Thanks for your interest.  I will try to write more about the choosing of the stories and the difficulty in finding suitable stories in later posts -- when I am not so busy as I've been lately.  Any questions?  Just ask.
