おじさまと猫 (Ojisama to neko) book club

I do want to continue this book club if others are still interested! I’m still reading book 2 (I’ve fallen behind in just about all of my studies and am slowly picking everything back up again.)
I noticed there hasn’t been any discussion on the vol. 3 thread yet so perhaps we could change the pacing and update the reading schedule? Has anyone started the 3rd volume yet?

I would like that as well. I think it might be possible that only @ChristopherFritz and @fray are on vol 3 right now. Is that the case?

I’m hoping to reach the end of volume 2 by the end of March, but it depends on how many chapters I read on my “Ojisama to Neko” reading day each week.

I’ll get there eventually!

If all of us are on vol 2, why don’t we change the schedule then? I could finish vol 2 by the end of March too. I have some personal project deadlines that make this a lot easier than trying to catch up to the schedule for vol3

I forgot to before, but I’ll change up the Vol 3 thread to reflect our new pace.

I know right? If this trend keeps up, I hope vol 10 is just all cats all over the front

@noko and @ChristopherFritz It’s April now, how are things going?

How fast or slow do we want to do vol 3?

I have volume 3 in hand (well, it’s digital). I can start at any time and go at any pace =D

Nice! I also have the volume, although I think I’d prefer to go at a slightly slower pace. I hope to be on track with y’all this time.

Slower works for me. I’m working out my April reading schedule, and I have three series (including this one) with short chapters (6 to 20 pages to a chapter). Since I normally read about 45 manga pages per day, I figure I can put all my short-chapter series into a single day each week. Done that way, I can easily working in one or two chapters of :older_man::cat: per week (or whatever pace works for you).

A slower pace should make it easier to comment on things from the manga, as well.

(P.S. I forgot I still have two chapters left in volume 2! I’ll read those Friday. No disruption for volume 3 scheduling.)

Thank you! Your reading amount is really impressive. I hope I can build up the stamina for that level of reading sometime soon.

I think I would prefer about 1 chapter a week. I forgot to bring my vol 3 today, but if there are any extra long or short chapters, we can average them out.

Re your PS. Lol, I have the same 2 chapters left. It’s already Friday for me, so I’m reading them now :joy: What a funny world. Earlier this week, I forgot I had 2 bimonthly magazines arriving, so I got very distracted by their content.

I’ll go grab the 3rd volume this week, and I think a chapter a week is perfect! I’ve gotten into a study rhythm again and need to just fit in actually commenting in the threads into that rhythm :sweat_smile:

Week of 4/26- 虎穴に入らずんばパパさんを得ず
Week of 5/3- 33(しょう)

Week of 6/14- 38(しょう)

And then a week or two break and start Volume 4 if we’re still interested or gain someone?

Also, so it’s not such a pain anymore, I hid the majority of the volume 1 sheets in the vocab spreadsheet. I added instructions (view>see hidden sheets) to the first page.

This works perfectly for me! Thanks for doing all of that :two_hearts:

No problem! It wasn’t too much editing of the original schedule anyway :slight_smile:
