Someone else wants the library copy of Umibe no Kafuka. Do not feel like wading through the remaining 200 pages to get it done by Tuesday. Goodreads tells me I won't get any answers anyway, and I don't really want to read the translation. Especially since it appears Rubin translates 'boku no katai penisu' as 'my rock-hard cock.' Which may be the nuance included in using the English word, for all I know to the contrary. The yaoi I've read doesn't use a specific noun for it at all- the usual sore (that) and mono (thing)- but feels weird. I seem to recall having problems with Rubin before. But that leaves me with a 'what do I read instead?' Piles of manga, but manga print is small and I find manga dialogue much more difficult than straight forward prose. Oh well, there must be something.
In technological weirdness, my phone has taken to flipping any selfies I take of myself, left to right, and I can't figure out why, even by the time tested and, as I understand it, SOP of clicking anything clickable on the screen. Doesn't flip photos, just selfies.
