So I went to Book Off to find some dictionaries in different languages but ended up buying other books instead, and not a single dictionary.


If you haven’t heard of Book Off, it’s a vintage shop in Japan selling used books, CDs, DVDs, gadgets, and toys, but mostly books. They also sell new books in the first floor.

ブックオフ知らない方は日本人にはいないと思いますが、ブックオフはもう使わなくなった本や、CD, DVD, ゲームなどが売られている所です。ほとんどは本ですけど。

I created a video in my YouTube Channel, Flexi Aquilla. Please check it out and don’t forget to subscribe for more videos. ☺️


If you’d rather read than watch, then just keep on scrolling. 🙂


I was hoping to find dictionaries in Korean-English, Japanese-English, Spanish-English, and Russian-English, but haven’t found a single dictionary on sale. All of them are new so I think I’ll have to wait until used dictionaries will be available. Besides, I can use the dictionaries on my phone. I just wanted a physical copy.


So I thought to myself, why not look at other books since I’m already here? I can’t go into a bookstore and not spend hours looking at books and feeling their pages.


I had no intention of buying any books aside from dictionaries, but as I was walking down the aisle of books, I found Lonely Planet: Spain for only ¥300 so I grabbed it before anyone else would. I’ve been collecting Lonely Planet books because I like to read about other countries in order to widen my understanding of the world.

辞書以外本を買うつもりはなかったんですけど、ロンリープラネットスペインが ¥300だけでしたので買うことにしました。世界の知識をもっと広げる為にロンリープラネットの本を最近、集め始めました。

The next book I got is Two-Minute Mysteries by Donald J. Sobol, which consists of 79 quickie mysteries, filled with very tricky clues.

I also got 2 children’s books, one being a series I’ve been collecting when I was in grade school but haven’t completed, which is the Dork Diaries by Renée Russell. I don’t own the Dork Diaries: Pop Star yet, so I’m adding this to my bookshelf.

The other one is A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Slippery Slope by Lemony Snicket. It’s the 10th book and I have to admit, I only red Book 1 but I don’t mind skipping. (Even if it’s 8 books)

I’ve been feeling the need to read children’s books lately, what with all the global warming problems we’ve been discussing at school. I need a little break.


The last book I got is Breaking Into Japanese Literature by Giles Murray. It features 7 stories covering a variety of genres by famous Japanese authors.

What I love about this book is that there’s Japanese text, then the translation in English, and a list of vocabularies with meaning so the reader doesn’t need to find the words in the dictionary every single time when met with a new word.


I’m satisfied with this mini book haul despite the fact that I wasn’t able to buy what I came for.


Have you read any of these books? Are there any of these in your TBR? I would love to hear from you! 😊
