      I enjoyed this episode very much. Thanks for brightening my day, Ruth and Anthony!
      I live in the UK but I’d love to read the book so I’m going to order it from the Japanese bookshop in London. Do you know if it is going to be available as an e-book for Kindle?

      Interesting show. I would be interested in reading a direct translation of the book, rather than something modified for English speakers.

        Yeah it would be a great conversation starter with Japanese friends. I suppose though that she wrote the book for Japanese people and some of the stories might not translate over so well.
