While reading きらきらひかる I thought it might fit this club. It’s about the newly married life of, very roughly put, an alcoholic woman with mood swings and a homosexual man with a lover. (This is spoiled on the back of the book… But also within the first chapter. Not a big spoiler.)
The book deals with their conflicts within society but also with themselves.
I’m thinking of maybe starting one of the following from tomorrow, not sure which:
家庭用安心坑夫, 嫌いなら呼ぶなよ or むらさきのスカートの女.
Is anyone interested in reading together? Shall I make a thread even if I’m reading alone for now?
While I would definitely like to have something like this as well, the problem with Discourse polls is that they cannot be altered without destroying them Therefore we‘d need to think about a good way to add new books. Maybe add a new poll for every five books that get added to the club? (Or maybe every 10 books? Would that be too long a wait? )
I‘m worried about that as well… In the Akutagawa etc. threads I usually list the new books just as text until somebody reads one of them, but here it’s different as books get added to the club because somebody is reading them
The nice thing about single-book polls is that they have the option to remove the vote again, which multi-entry polls don’t have (unless something changed recently). But now that I think about it, even if I didn’t read a given book yet, I want to see who read it without clicking, which would require a second option („I haven’t“) to the polls as well, bloating them even more…
Maybe 3 or 5 books would be a better solution?
I thought all polls allowed you to change your vote?
Another (convoluted) idea would be to make a poll with the maximum options. The poll would be numbers only, and then we’d number the books in the list. So as new books are added, we just vote for their number when we read them. It works, but you can’t tell which book is which at a glance, which isn’t ideal.
Another not ideal solution would be for each of us to have their own check box. Something like:
Obviously also unmanageable as more readers are added though
Not to mention that it’s easy to check random boxes by mistake.
I suppose the best way is to make a poll for everything we have now, then add polls after 3 or 5 books are added.
