おじさまと猫 (Ojisama to neko) book club

That’s a great idea! I’ll try to implement it after starting the thread for this week.

Edit: I will try to implement it sometime this week. Someone else is welcome to do the edits themselves though. I’m currently having some personal problems.

The next thread is up! Sorry for the delay!

Sorry, the thread for this week is now up! Also, if someone else could make a comment after this, I would appreciate it so Discourse doesn’t throw a fit about the three post rule.

@Sarabrina would be so kind and add the links to the discussion threads to the first post please?

Here are the links, so it might be easier to just copy and paste:

Just throwing my personal thoughts into the ring:

  1. I think for the upcoming volume(s) one thread would be enough. The amount of people reading Ojineko wasn’t very high to begin with. Also there are not many questions or discussions in the threads (except for last week but that was mostly due to organization than actual discussion of the contents of the manga). Even with just one thread per volume we can have a weekly reading schedule.

  2. As for thr schedule: I’d actually prefer a faster reading speed (so more than two chapters a week). What do others think about that?

In general, I’m wondering who wants to read past volume 1 with the book club?

I’d be okay with a faster reading speed. I could do probably 3-4 chapters a week, but wouldn’t be able to keep up if it was any faster.

Also, even if people don’t want to read past vol. 2 together, I don’t mind making threads for the rest of the volumes so that people can still contribute to a vocab list and ask questions if they like.

It seems like @Sallyjoe25 prefers the status quo (2 chapters / week). I wouldn’t really want to go with the majority on this one (a tie between 3-4 chapters / week atm) because I think it is better to have as many people reading with us as possible. I don’t mind going with a slower speed than I prefer.

I’m wondering, though, if maybe 3 chapters per week would be okay for you @Sallyjoe25 if we took short breaks between volumes (1-2 weeks?) and maybe short breaks during holdiay seasons (e.g. last few days of December)?

That is fine with me. I will read along with the group and continue even if I fall behind. I don’t want to hold the group up. So whatever the decision is, I’m fine with it.

Thanks
