なぜ?どうして?Our lowest-level reading group ever! Starting November 1st!


#223

So, here’s a link to the beginnings of a vocab spreadsheet.
Is that the sort of thing you are looking for? I haven’t participated in any of these book groups before, so I’m not sure how you usually organize things, especially with grammar.


#224

I tried looking at your format but I had to look up some words for me to understand what you wrote :joy::joy: I guess my japanese understanding is still really low… I’m really glad I decided to join this bookclub :smile:


#225

I don’t understand them all either (yet!) - I’m just copying the table of contents to give it order.


#226

That’s great! Some other info (such as links to Tae Kim for grammar, and possibly WK lvl for any kanji) may be handy but you’ve saved me getting a google acct, cheers!


#227

Having had another look, it seems to be read-only - would you be happy letting the whole reading group have access to input info?


#228

I’ve added the link to the Vocab List to the Opening Post. Thank you @Saruko and @Rowena for working on this!


#229

All Saruko’s work so far - I have found my organisational-fanatic hero!


#230

I tried to set it so that anyone with the link can edit. Are you still having trouble?


#231

Great, thanks! (It might have been an issue with me trying to access it from my tablet…).


#232

My book arrived today! :smiley:
It looks lovely and I’m really glad I got a physical copy :blush:

So excited to start! November can’t come soon enough. Let’s do this.


#233

You and me both haha


#234

Ordered the book but says it might not be available to ship for 1-3 weeks. Fortunately, I do have a decent ability for vocabulary/grammar. At least it SEEMS that I am recognizing a great deal of vocabulary and grammar from when I was last on the ball with Japanese, so I think I should be able to catch up ok if it arrives a few days late. Here’s hoping I don’t have to!


#235

Looks like CD Japan has the book back in stock for now! Says available to ship in 3-7 days. :blush:
Just thought I’d give a shout in case someone else really wanted a physical copy.


#236

Hmmm… that’s where I ordered it from but they sent me this email just three hours ago…


#237

I just ordered mine a few minutes ago, and just saw your post. Bummer, I haven’t received that email yet though. This community is emptying the shelves lol.


#238

Right? Publishers probably sitting around not sure why they just sold so many copies of their totally not intended for foreigners books to a large lot of foreigners… :laughing: “Well…that wasn’t exactly my intended audience…”


#239

Here’s to hoping that the publishers will eventually stock our national e-markets. If only it was were on Amazon :disappointed:


#240

Was able to order on amazon.jp with global shipping and it will arrive in time! :slight_smile: Canceled with cdjapan. Boom


#241

I’m in! Hopefully I can find a copy in time, this seems like great practice.


#242

This sounds like an awesome idea!
I want to participate, however, I am incredibly worried that I wont be able to understand or keep up. I just started learning about 3 weeks ago. Ive been using LingoDeer, Memrise, Genki 1, and just signed up for WK today!

Hopefully there are more book clubs I can join in the future because this sounds incredibly fun.
