Since I started studying Japanese literatur in Japan… I recently noticed I became afraid of reading. It always took me such a long time to read what was asked of me, too many words I had to look up which I wanted to but didn’t have the time to do so. The content also was difficult. This also made me stop reading for fun.
Until I noticed how fast I actually could read English or Dutch again, how much FUN it is to READ without having big difficulties.
Now I started reading a manga in Japanese and it reads so fast… I’m starting to enjoy reading again, little by little!
The manga is called ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ btw and I’M HOOKED!
