It rains and I'm reading the first 12 Kingdoms novel, in Japanese, finally. (Bought five years ago, couldn't get into it, abandoned.)

Actually, the lovely cool sun of the last three days first made me want to read Pratchett, which I did-- happy reread of The Truth, which I liked better second time around-- and then made me want to read Japanese. The weather changed overnight but the urge remained. I shall see if the goodness of fit between 12K and TO's changeable weather survives the heat and storms forcast for the end of the week, but I'm not sanguine on that front.
