A little about myself.
I am an IT technician, participate in many projects, some HTML work, and reading a lot. I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

Akutagawa Ryunosuke's in Japanese by Kindle

I didn't know you can buy Japanese books by kindle. Kindle doesn't have Japanese fonts, and Kindle seems display Japanese as images.

There are some Japanese books in Amazon Kindle store, but no so many. However almost all Akutagawa Ryunosuke's and Yosano Akiko's are there. They were very popular novel writers in Japan about one hundred years ago then their copyrights are over and the prices are very cheap.

This is the sample of Jyasjumon, the most important work of Akutagawa Ryunosuke.  You can read it clearly. When I downloaded this, I needed more time than usual. I guess the file size was a little bigger because of image file.
