(Well, not really a "new" book, it's the online book
, newly printed) ;).
Another shout out for you guys today, this one promoting a book that has been several years in the making - and one I've had a tiny part to play in! Pomax, a person that has been mentioned a few times
on this site, has finished his book and it's been published!
If you find yourself struggling to actually get serious about studying when the resources are free then take this chance to buy a book and make a commitment to learning Japanese. What makes this book stand out from the rest is you have direct access to the person you wrote it. If you have any questions while reading the book all you need to do is jump into irc, join #nihongo on irc.irchighway.net and give Pomax a little knudge and he'll help.
So take this oppertunity to not only support a friend and dedicated Japanese tutor, but to take studying Japanese seriously and read manga the way it was meant to be read - In its original language :).
Buy it at the following locations: Free Shipping for those in the U.S.! @ TheJapanShop!Publisher's page
