Or in other words than Japanese, "Good morning!"

...I just wanted a cool thing to say on my intro. I know a little Japanese because of a few years spent training in ninjitsu. (Is it too early to talk about being a ninja? Probably. Forget I mentioned it.)

Looking forward VERY much to being part of the Librivox family of readers--I already record a book a year (or so) for family road trips (unfortunately the soonest any of the recordings I've done will be Public Domain usable is about 10-40 years) and also record a bi-monthly podcast...so I'm a HUGE fan of my own voice!

I'm also a big fan of all of yours--have downloaded scads of recordings and have material for walks with the baby until said baby graduates from college. Many thanks...or arigato gozaimashita!

Will

Can only speak a few words, cannot read a single character. Sure is pretty, though

日本語をわすれた、笑笑!!! しょがないよ。

Welcome Will! I also trained Togakure-Ryu Ninjutsu for quite some time, I'm happy to see others around that might have enjoyed the same art. I hope you have great time here at Librivox. Everyone is extremely nice, and you'll fit in just fine.

Arigato gozaimashta, Jack-san and Masa-san! Ninpo-tai-jutsu was my 'weapon of choice', as it were. Seven years and third-degree brown-belt later, I have a deep love for most all things Japanese. Might have to see when Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" will be in public domain...
