Learn the phrase!

積ん読     つんどく     < Tsundoku >

(n.) buying books and not reading them, instead letting them pile up unread on shelves, floors or bedside tables.

Are you suffering from tsundoku too?
As the Japanese have already coined a term for it, aren't you glad you're not alone?


木漏れ日     こもれび     < Komorebi >

(n.) sunlight that filters through the tree leaves

Such a beautiful phrase it hurts.


過労死     かろうし     < Karoshi >

(n.) death by overworking.

Has this ever happened in Australia?
