リング - Reading log 1

For about a half hour I read through the first chapter of リング. I started off looking up all the words I didn't know, which didn't work, especially since I was working with the paper version I bought. So I read through it without using the dictionary at all. I was a little surprised to find I could follow along with what was happening in the story even without knowing a lot of the words. Scary book. Completing the Movie Method is very helpful here as I can usually guess unknown compounds with a decent accuracy most of the time. It was really fun being able to sit back on my bed and actually open a book to read without stopping.

There were a couple sentences I could understand fully.
There were a lot of sentences that I could understand otherwise but had only a vague idea or no clue as to what one or two of the words meant.
There were a couple sentences where I understood nothing or close to nothing.

Grammar was not an issue, as it didn't get in the way of my understanding. Japanese grammar is very simple. There was a verb with ぬ at the end of it and I could basically understand what it meant because I've seen it before and the context was clear, but the subtlety was lost to me. It's just a matter of time.

I've been adding consistently more than 25 sentences a day to Anki, often past 30, sometimes past 35. There were only two days where I added less than twenty (on both I added about 18).
