Spent yesterday evening power reading through the last two volumes of Kurotsubaki and in consequence have inflamed a neck disk. I'd forgotten that looking down while reading can do that, and that reading manga involves an acute degree of down-looking. (1Q84 is a hardcover, fortunately.) Shall remember from now on, but meanwhile right arm is all ow ow ow, especially when typing, which for me also involves a lot of looking down.

(Reading Japanese fiction is really a lot easier than reading manga, especially that manga. More room, easier to get stuff from context, etc etc. Downside- no pretty pictures.)
