Heya! I'd like some help, if anyone could assist lil me. I want to find The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Skikibu. (The novel which is widely accepted as the first novel ever written.) I know I can find it at Amazon, but I'm interested in finding a version in it's original Japanese form as well as English. I have no idea where to look for the Japanese one! I'm very frustrated by this. I know there must be a simple answer somewhere, but I'm looking to hard to find it, I think. The price of the two books combined (and shipping) can't be too high, because... I'm rather broke. I'm hoping if I can find a place to buy them, I could hope it's still available around Christmas but anyway, the English copy can be in most any condition, but I'd like the Japanese to be a little bit nicer. Hopefully hardcover, but you can imagine the price tag on something thing that Well, anyone have any ideas where I can look?
