Updates

7/20 Added Natsume’s “Three Cornered World,” known as “Grass Pillow,” in English.

7/22 Added “Oku No Hosomichi.” Included 2 different audio links–one has the audio split into 5 parts and the other into each of the 45 short chapters.

7/27 After some research I advise against using “Tale of Genji” until one has reached a fairly advanced stage of learning, since it appears that both the Japanese text and the translation are modern interpretations of the original text written 1000 years ago. Hence it is likely that both works will differ significantly from one another in certain parts.

8/11 Added downloadable audio links for “Undine.”

10/12 Added J/E parallel text I made for “Le Petit Prince.” (Open Office format)

10/14 Added the SciFi classic, “Winds of Gath.” Since this is a relatively recent book, I suspect there may be copyright infringements involved with this audio, so download it ASAP if you’re at all interested in using it. Japanese version of book available at AmazonJP or YesAsia.

11/24 Added Two stories by Beatrix Potter. Added parallel text I created for “A Scandal in Bohemia.” (MS Word)

11/25 Added better audio versions for “Kokoro,” “Three Cornered World,” and “Down the Takase River.” Added video versions of “Acorns and the Wildcat” and “Restaurant of Many Orders.”

12/2 Added “Sins of Prince Saradine,” and “Picture Book Without Pictures.” Added better audio for “Gift of the Maji.”

12/22 Added “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.”

2/26 Added “Silver Blaze” and “Hiroki.”

7/1 Fixed some audio links. Added “Alice in Wonderland” and “Adventure of the Six Napoleons.”

9/26 Added “The Priory School” and “King Solomon’s Mines.”
