しろくまカフェ Vol 1: Absolute Beginner Book Club (Starting March 13th 2019)


#162

Thanks, if I find a way to do it I’ll add the old page numbers.

Unfortunately I’m not yet sure how to do it since I only have the old version myself and all the „not entirely legal“ versions that I found are always the old version too.

I think I‘ll need the help of someone with the new version for that :-/


#163

Do you mean me??


#164

Anyone who wants to spend time on it. Since you are already busy with adding the vocab maybe someone else would be so nice to help me with the page numbers.

I‘m currently a bit busy but I’ll also try and contribute to the vocab lookup in the Google doc on the weekend.


#165

I’ll be happy to help in any way I can. My copy of the bis version is supposed to arrive tomorrow.


#166

You’re living the life!


#167

Trying to get back to the 18yo version of myself that would read a book/week :sob:


#168

Oh man… since I had my kid… what does reading a book mean?


#169

Read with them? :rofl:


#170

ok… fair… I read toddler books over and over again :blonde_man::gun:


#171

100% this. Since my kids were born, “reading a book” is a bedtime activity rather than something for pleasure or learning. That’s one of the reasons I’m looking forward to this book club so much.


#172

Ohhhh boy I’m really looking forward to this! I’ve been meaning to add reading practice into my studies and this seems perfect. It’s hard to find things that are at my reading level and are also something I’d be interested in reading (I really liked what I saw of the anime). Looking forward to reading and studying with you all. :3


#173

That would be great, thanks! I hope that if I get the corresponding page number for each of the following pages, we should have everything we need. If something unexpected comes up when comparing these then maybe I have to ask for some more pages…

Images and page numbers here

Old version: page 80. This is also page 80 in the new version, correct?

Old version: page 89

Old version: page 143

Old version: page 145

Old version: page 160. Last page of the last chapter. What follows is only “extra” content and we know that this is different.

Old version, volume 2: page 4. Is this in the bis version?

Old version, volume 2: page 10.

Old version, volume 2: page 26.

Old version, volume 2: page 41. Is this the last chapter in the new version?


#174

I will help with the vocab list on the weekend. I‘m away from home cause of work :confused:


#175

OK, I’ll contact you when I have my copy on hand. If all goes well, that would be tomorrow night.


#176

I’ll check later. I don’t have the book with me now


#177

Seems like the two versions differ in much more than expected! :thinking:

Also note that the ebook page numbers are always the physical pages + 2 (because they also count the front page and its inside). So I will give you the numbers for the pages as they are in the ebook:

eBook (bis version) page numbers for the requested pages

Old version p. 80 -> ebook p. 82 (i.e. print version p. 80)
Old version p. 89 -> not in the ebook at all?!?! (I searched from ~ p. 80 onwards)
Old version p. 143 -> ebook p. 151 (i.e. print version p. 149)
Old version p. 145 -> ebook p. 83 (i.e. print version p. 81)
Old version p. 144 (what I can see of it) -> looks like ebook p. 91 (i.e. print version p. 89)
Old version p. 160 -> ebook p. 130 (i.e. print version p. 128)
Old version v2 p. 10 -> ebook p. 152
Old version v2 p. 26 -> ebook p. 168
Old version v2 p. 41 -> ebook p. 183 (this is chapter 27, so there is one more chapter in the new version)

To further align things, here are screenshots and page numbers for the first pages of each chapter:

My copy should arrive in 10 days or so, if there’s any kind of work to be done yet I’ll volunteer. Maybe help with the vocabulary lists. I’ll get in touch when I have it in my hands!


#179

Could someone explain how the ebook site works? Also, what reader would work with this (I’m assuming this won’t be in Kindle format)?


#180

Ebookjapan??


#181

Really excited about this :slight_smile:
