From the last Monday through next Friday, an open seminar of tadoku is being held, (ahhh I'm not quite sure about the usage of the tense of verb like this. I know it's high time for me to learn the correct usage, but it's still a bother...), at Ohta sakuradai high school in Tokyo.

I joined the session yesterday and read this wonderful classic story of children's literature. The theme is about a bulling, but it's not harsh like other stories nowadays and it's kind of a relief.
Speaking of the tadoku session, there were about 10 participants yesterday and all of them were quite eager to read ORT and other easy English books. After the session, I went to a Izakaya restaurant with Mr. Sakai and 5 members and I had a very pleasant time. One of the new members seemed to have a similar interest to me, well more precisely both of us shall be called an otaku..., and he even guessed right what I was interested in the most right now in just five or so minutes of small talk. Got to befriend with him and cultivate a new world for otakist(otadokist): otakist(otadokist) is a newly invented word by my tadoku friend and it consists of two words, otaku and tadokist. If you're a frequent reader of my site, then the chances are high, I guess, that you're one of them...^^
