In addition to a bad tsundoku habit, I also have a habit of having three or four books on the go at all times. I'm glad to have had a quiet weekend where I managed to finish off three books that I'd been reading in bits and fits here and there over the last little while.
To some people's surprise, this foreigner living in Japan is not a big manga/anime head--but Akira is special. After loving the movie for many years and recently scooping the complete set for cheap, I finally started. Vol 1 down, 5 to go. This will take some extra time, since with graphic novels I read them through once for the story and then go through a second time to enjoy the art.
Of course, once I finished the above three, I started another book right away:
The films Robinson in Space and Robinson in Ruins are both highly recommended.
We'll see how it goes.
