The temperature is getting down here, but many leaves are still green.

I've been reading a book titled 'Incidents in the life of a slave girl'. I'll finish it before long, so I've been looking for the next book I'll read.
The other day, as my son wanted to sell his used toys at a thrift shop, I drove him there. I went there for the first time. Although I hadn't expected, there were some kinds of used foreign books. I enjoyed browsing all of them. And then, I chose one titled 'HOLES'. I paid only 63 yen for the book. As a matter of fact, the price was 108 yen, but I used some points which had saved when my son sold his used toys firstly. The book was used, but the appearance was very good. New foreign books are more expensive than domestic books, so, I was glad to get a good deal.

Today, I went to the library, and I borrowed some foreign picture books.
Actually, I was surprised to find a book titled 'Bam and Kero's Sunday' in English ! When my son was younger, we loved the Bam and Kero's books. I bought some of them in Japanese several years ago. However, I saw one of them in English for the first time today. These books are still popular among children, because even small pictures have small stories apart from a main story.

For example, in the picture frame, at first, the fin looked like a shark's. After all, it was not a shark, but a penguin.

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.
It is difficult for me to use properly between the words, expect and anticipate.

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Implied Question:

It is difficult for me to use properly between the words, expect and anticipate.


My Reply:

Although many use them interchangeably, to anticipate is to acknowledge the chance of something happening...anywhere from a slight chance, to the great probability that something would happen or be at a particular place.

To expect is to have every reason to believe that something would be so. In the person's mind, it is a 100% sure.

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

I want to go there sometimes.
