I see what you’re saying. I hadn’t considered that a possibility, but retrospectively I guess that’s what @tomwamt was going for with a both on Monday vote.
Which would you prefer?
2 chapters 1 thread
2 chapters 2 threads (same day)
2 chapters 2 threads (different days)
2 threads, no day preference
Anyone with better poll making abilities is welcome to make a better poll. I don’t have great foresight/insight into anything this week it seems.
Although, based on current results, I’ll post the next chapter thread tomorrow. If people change their votes between now and later, I don’t see any reason that we can’t move the day of the week, etc to better suit everyone at that point.
I just found this thread and I recently bought the book, perfect timing! It might take me a week or two to catch up, but I am very excited to have assistance and community to work our way through the book.
The chapters are very short and thus we have a lot of chapters in volume 1. With just one thread a week, we wouldn’t “spam” the reading section too much. Also discussion might die down over time, we already don’t seem to have as many (active) participants. So later on, if we have one thread per week with like six replies instead of two threads with each three replies… one thread seems to be more appropriate kind of?
To avoid spoilers, we could always use the “hide details” or “blur spoiler” tool. That’s what we do in other book club threads as well.
I’m so sorry for my absence from the group, seeing as I started the book club in the first place.
I’ve realized that I won’t have time needed to be active in the group, especially not since I have an injured horse to care for (which has taken up most of my spare time after work lately), besides working full time and living on a farm (and caring for and exercising my other horse). I haven’t even had time to keep up with my WK reviews during the past few days. I hope you can all understand and I hope that you will continue the legacy of the Ojisama to neko book club, even without me. I will pop in when I have some spare time! My own reading of Ojisama to neko has also had to be put on hold for a while.
Good luck everyone! And thank you all for being so active in the group anyway! <3
About the vocab sheet: I noticed that vocab for chapter 7 goes by ebook page numbers but chapter 8 goes by the actual printed book page numbers (see table of contents). I was wondering if we could decide on one of the two, otherwise it can be a bit confusing,
Myself and whoever else was adding words originally for the first 5-6 chapters used the physical page numbers unless someone edited them. I would prefer the original physical ones but I’ll go with whatever the group decides.
It shouldn’t be much of a problem to add a small note somewhere that it’s +2 pages (I think?).
Or we can always add two columns in the vocab sheet and let the ebook page numbers auto-fill when adding the physical book page numbers. How about that?
