A couple of regular blog readers have threatened to go try out the first volume of Nana on my recommendation. That’s super…but I do want to warn y’all that the first book is probably the weakest of the series. I think Yazawa was originally considering using it as a stand-alone story, rather than turning it into a series…anyway, it’s pretty different, and somewhat weaker, than what follows. Not that it’s bad or anything (especially the third part) but I’d hate to have anyone pick it up and then decide not to go any further.

If you’re just starting, you should really commit to reading at least the first two — or even beginning with the second one if reading two whole volumes seems too much of a commitment.

In other news; if you follow the blog, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting a lot over the past two weeks. That is going to have to slow, I think…I’ll try posting a couple of times a week still, but the everyday thing is just not sustainable, I fear.

I do have a blog event which should definitely be debuting in the next few weeks…and I’ve got a couple of other ideas as well, which aren’t quite fully thought through yet. And I’m hoping to have at least one more blogger added to HU early next year.

So…thanks to all the new readers who have stopped by this week, and to all the old hands too. If you’d like, leave a comment and let me know how you think we’re doing in general, or what you’d like to see more or less of. Thanks again.
