I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
People say that playing video games is a complete waste of tell. Well, let me tell you, I found an instance where playing video games wasn't a waste of time.
Instead of struggling to figure out how to pronounce Japanese names while reading this book, I was able to breeze through names like they were English. Why? Because of video games! Specifically the Dynasty Warriors series of games by Koei. Thanks video games!
