Reading Schedule

  • I tried to aim for logical break in the flow, so the last sentence might not be the last sentence of the page but the last sentence before a break.
  • Similarly, the page count may change a bit from week to week.
  • There are many illustrations, which inflates the page count. The schedule aims for 15 pages of text per week.
Week Start Date Chapter Until page (last sentence)
Week 1 March 9th Prologue/Chapter 1 (1/2) p.29 (その間、誰一人として見かけることはなかった。)
Week 2 March 16th Chapter 1 (2/2) p.45 (「さあね」)
Week 3 March 23rd Chapter 2 (1/2) p.62 (「[…]順を追って話そう。」
Week 4 March 30th Chapter 2 (2/2) p.78 (ヘルメスの正当な抗議を無視しながら、キノはアクセルをさらに開けた。)
Week 5 April 6th Chapter 3 (1/1) p.97 (老人はにやっと笑いながら、そう訊ねた)
Week 6 April 13th Chapter 4 (1/4) p.114 (台詞の棒読みのように言った。)
Week 7 April 20th Chapter 4 (2/4) p.127 (男は何も言わず、気を失て右側に倒れた。)
Week 8 April 27th Chapter 4 (3/4) p.142 (そして、撃たなかった)
Week 9 May 4th Chapter 4 (4/4) p.165 (そして、彼はもう一度だけ、森の向こうにあるはずの国を見た。)
Week 10 May 11th Chapter 5 (1/2) p.184 (「[…]謝罪しろ!」) *
Week 11 May 18th Chapter 5 (2/2) p.198 (でもそれは別の話だ。)
Week 12 May 25th Chapter 6 (1/2) p.219 ([…]ホヴィーが動き出すとすぐに消えた。)
Week 13 June 1st Chapter 6 (2/2)/Epilogue p.236 (わずかに残っていた炎は、消えた。)

* A slightly weird cut (just before the end of the page, in the middle of a conversation).

Schedule looks good. How’d you pick the break points within a chapter? Were there actual breaks at those points?

Wow, chapter 4’s a monster!

For all the breaks except the “weird” one, yes. I just went a bit back or forward, so we have sometimes 16 pages, sometimes 13… I hope it will be fine.
For the weird one, though, there was just no interruption in the text for pages on end, so I put the break at the moment where a character pauses before talking instead (such cliffhanger!)

Next time we should call all the authors and publishers and force them to add breaks at exactly 15 pages just for us. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

We have already such an impact on the market. They have to listen to us.

Yes, let’s have them give 1 book away to one of the participants of the book club for every book we read.

I’m sorry I’m a bit confused! Where can I set my participation status?

There is a poll in the second post about if you intend to read the book or not, and once we start reading there will also be a poll in each discussion thread, where you can update your current status(just look at one of the chapter discussion threads for some other book if you want to see what those look like)

So, https://floflo.moe/kino-no-tabi/ is the vocab list? And I could use it as SRS if I wanted to? :thinking:

That should be correct, yes.

You do need to register a free account with floflo first though, or you won’t be able to see past the first 100 words or so (and won’t be able to use the SRS).
