Crossed the 500 mark

Last year when I started learning Japanese, I used James Heisig's Remembering the Kana to learn hiragana and katakana both in a single weekend. With results like that, it was only natural to buy his Remembering the Kanji to start learning kanji. The book covers just over 2000 kanji. This last weekend I passed the 500 mark. I still have a long way to go (finish learning 1500 kanji from book 1, then learn all the readings for those kanji in book 2, then learn another 1000 in book 3) but it's been a fun ride so far and I'm looking forward to continuing.
