おばちゃんたちのいるところ 👻 (Intermediate Book Club) ・ In progress

Not that I’m trying to escalate the situation :joy: but if you’re combining 8+9 and 10+11, you might as well also combine 12+13 and 14+15, since those both come out to 15 pages, matching the intended reading pace perfectly. (Actually, I just counted, and it seems like story 15 actually has 7 pages of text, not 5. :thinking: But the others looked right.)

Thanks for the correction!

I agree that it’d make sense to combine 12+13 and 14+15 as well, because it seems silly to go significantly slower than the IBC pace of 15 pages, especially when the alternative is to go only marginally faster. When it looked like the 22 page weeks were going to be ~50% faster than the ‘official’ pace I thought a vote was in order, but now that it turns out that they’re actually 15-16 pages (at most ~6% faster)…

Thought it might also be worth mentioning that a lot of chapters end with a line or two text on the last page, so I think it’s all the more reason to combine chapters.

In a pinch I am sure you could join us for the next chapter while you catch up on the other ones :slight_smile: The stories seem to be mostly loosely related, not prerequisites for one another.

I’d suggest reading the first story first, though, as that does link up with another later.

Oh no, I was so busy yesterday I forgot to post the new thread! I hope everyone had a lovely New Year’s Eve (so they were too busy to notice the thread was missing :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:) and here’s to 2023! :champagne:

It’s the first time we’re reading two stories in one week!

I’m persistently slightly behind, but not very behind - I’m partway through last week’s second story. Maybe I’ll catch up before the club finishes?
