  • I bit my lip and blushed profusely as he stared at me with that look on his face. The one thing that can send me into a severe and debilitating case of RCS (Roller-Coaster Syndrome) in mere seconds.
  • She has the IQ of a plastic houseplant.
  • You must be delusional or something. Or maybe your hair clips are so tight, they’re cutting off the oxygen to your brain.
  • I’m just really tired of pretending everything is fine when it isn’t!
  • But I just said that inside my head, so no one else heard it but me.

  • Now I’m starting to wonder if Brandon actually likes me as MORE than just a friend!! And if he DOES, I’ll seriously just DROP DEAD from severe shock and extreme happiness!
  • By the end of our practice session, we had a very cool, original song about not fitting in at school and being who you really are. I have to admit, it isn’t about super serious stuff like lost love or saving the world. But it is OUR song, and it expresses how we feel. That’s the most important thing.

Mini Book Haul – ミニブックホール

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.

色んな言語の辞書を買うつもりでブックオフに行ったんだけど、探していた辞書が無かったため、他の本を買いました。

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. ☺️

私はユーチューブチャンネルがあるんですけど、ミニブックホールの動画をアップしたので、是非、見てください。そして、チャンネル登録お願いします。

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

動画を見るより、読みたかったら、読み続けても構いません。😊

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.

韓英辞書と和英辞書とスペイン英辞書とロシア英辞書が欲しかったんですけど、安いのが無かった為、買うことができませんでした。スマホに辞書が有るからいいんですけど、本の辞書も欲しいなと思ってすぐに使うわけでは無いので、すぐ無くても大丈夫です。

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.

でも、せっかく本屋に来たので他の本を見ないわけにはいかない。

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.

次買った本はドナルドソボルの二分のミステリーです。七十九のミステリーがあります。

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.

子供の本も買いました。一つ目はレイシェルレネイのドーク日記ポップスターです。このシリーズは子供の頃から集めていたシリーズなんですが、全部の本がまだ揃っていない為、買いました。

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)

二つ目はレモニスニケットのアシリーズオブアンホチュネイトイベンツ•ザスリペリースロープです。

A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Slippery Slope by Lemony Snicket

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.

学校では環境破壊問題や地球温暖化問題などを議論したので脳が少し疲れているため、子供の本も読みたいなと思って買いました。

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.

最後に買った本はガイルスムレーのブレーキング•インツ•ジャパニーズ•リテラチュルです。七つの物語があります。

Breaking Into Japanese Literature by Giles Murray

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.

この本のいい所は、オリジナルの日本語バージョンが書かれてあって、英語の翻訳もあって、そして、新しい言葉があるたび、辞書を引かなくてもいいように、単語のリストと意味が書かれているのがすごく便利だと思います。

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

目的の辞書は買えなかったけど、いい本を見つけて、満足しています。

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