Tadoku Log: Day 2

leave a comment »

70.79 pages today, for a total of 111.82, quite an improvement if I do say so myself. The vast majority came from Umineko (which is incredibly exciting and suspenseful now), a tad from playing the first bit of 紅魔城伝説II 妖幻の鎮魂歌 (which I’ll lovingly refer to from this point forth as Touhouvania), as well as a couple chapters of よつばと! for a few laughs after a particularly intense Umineko scene.

Changing up the way I read Umineko ever so slightly, mainly doing less look-ups of unknown words (of which this series is filled to the brim with), which seriously slows me down, breaks my focus and just generally doesn’t do very good things for my comprehension. I realized today that, despite all the Umineko I’d been reading, I still haven’t really learned a lot of the vocab it’s been repeating lately. As soon as I eased up on the mindless look-ups and just read, only looking up the more important words, I quickly began actually learning things again. Such is the power of Tadoku, and common sense.

And now, back to the murder mystery…
