These days I often read my E-reader. I bought it a year ago and it’s really good for me because I can read it at night in my bed without leaving the light on. There’s one downside, though. I can only read books and I can’t read anything online. It’s also black and white. Actually, that’s supposed to be better for your eyes but I need something to read things online.
That’s why, today I decided to get a tablet that I can see things online and it’s color. I got it on Amazon. Actually, this product is also made by Amazon. It’s their original product. You won’t believe how cheap it is! It’s only ¥7000!! Well, I was able to get a ¥4000 discount because I have Amazon Prime. I’m looking forward to getting it.

Yesterday, I got a tablet called Fire Kindle by Amazon. I played around with it when I got home from work. It was really cheap, less than ¥8000 yen. Therefore, the quality is not as good as iPad by Apple. I still like it, though. The reason why I bought it is to read things online. I subscribe to New York Times and it was really hard for me to read it on my smartphone. Now I can see really clearly. The display was bigger than I thought and it’s also heavier than I thought. Still, it’s good for me.
play around 「いじる」

I subscribe to 2 newspaper. (二つの新聞に講読している。)

Today was my birthday. I turned 41. It’s kind of funny but I don’t feel any different. I think you are supposed to feel more mature. Anyway, I had dinner with my girlfriend at a Yakiniku restaurant. She took me to a new restaurant. She ordered a course menu. It started off with tongue and a lot of different types of Kalubee. Next, seafood dish. I was already full at this point but came the chicken dish. I thought I was finally finished but a whole birthday cake came. I need to go on a one week diet! I had a good time, though.

You are supposed to feel more mature .(より大人になったと感じるはず。)
started off 「〜から初める」
