so I've been hearing about these mobile/cell phone novels all over the place.
especially after watching Koizora, I became immediately interested in them.

Of course, I googled them and found out it has become widely popular in Japan
and that a variety of the most popular ones will likely get read and spread around,
and eventually, may even get published into a book and/or movie. This includes
classics and even original real-life stories from ordinary people. Successes such
as Koizora and Akai Ito have or will be like those drama series & movie adaptations.

Just hearing that really amazed me on the skills of the writers!

it also talked about how if you translated most of those "novels" out in English,
they would actually be aroud 200-500 pages long!

imagine the hand cramps! &my eyes would probably hurt from reading through my
cell phone like that, but i love reading so it's okay (:

just goes to show that you can do almost everything on the cellphone nowadays.
& that the Japanese are waaaay ahead in technology. Yay, for them.

I think it's cool. A book might still be better for your eyes, but it saves you the trouble of packing a book. Or you can just read whenever.

Then again, why read when you can play games on your cell phone = )

You know I was just messing with you right? -__- I do not watch the olympics, I would not know anything about them, other than the names of some of the events. Although, America does excell in many areas that other countries do not. No offense to other countries, they have also got there expertise. I actually am a bit bored with U.S. I like to travel, I do not belong stuck in one country.

I was messing with you too. You just thought that I took your comment seriously, but in reality I did not. The only thing America really excels at in the olympics are track and heavyweight boxing.
