21st Century Japanese Net-Slang Handbook

"21st Century Japanese Net-Slang Handbook: The 20 Most Common Phrases" by Rin Wakatsuki


Want to know what this means? JAPANESE is a pretty weird language. It's one of the most difficult languages to learn with its complicated grammar and many Japanese characters. However it gets a whole lot more complicated when you try to chat with someone on the internet. On Twitter, Facebook, or Youtube, the Japanese content is IMPOSSIBLE to understand with just the normal textbook and dictionary. Japanese is not only one of the most complicated languages, but one of the most flexible ones. This gave birth to some very creative and weird net-slang in the 21st century. In this book you will learn 20 words you will NOT find in your ordinary Japanese textbooks.

V for Neck

"V for Neck" by Nova R. Paige

This book is about the joys and frustrations of customer service, and the adage that “the customer is always right.” The customer is “always right,” but it's still to their benefit to make it easier for the service representative to help them—they don't always grasp this concept. V for Neck is a short, funny description of what a customer service representative is thinking when a customer is yelling, cursing, asking dumb questions or casually proclaiming V is for Neck. Sometimes the representative will say out loud what she's thinking, but here you can read her inner dialogue.
