I changed it back. @kitsunensei changed it. An accident perhaps?
I never edited a thread title before, was there an option to check the edit history?
Oh, interesting. Thanks for the info!
Yeah it was a
easter egg typo, I was just taking out the extra bracket after the timezone thing
(lone brackets and quotation marks haunt me in my dreams…)
Haven’t even finished the reading for week 1? Too bad cuz’ the Week 2 thread is up!

I don’t know how comparable these values are across different versions and if anyone finds this helpful but (instead of actually reading or studying… ) I looked up the percentage and location values on the Kindle:

Wish we could do that for every book Thanks. Talking about the percentage in particular, that will be very helpful with the ebooks. So if we can add them to the main post
Konbini read aloud/chat session tonight! 9:30pm Japan time.
I am looking forward to your company!
Hi, sorry I was late. I just got home from JLPT N2. Will backread.
Gaah! Just found this in my Uni library luckily. I have some catching up to do! Guess I’m reading this parallel with Kino I started recently.
I am joining in for reading too, starting from today. Hope I will be able to catch up eventually
Since it’s only week 2 and both of those weeks are about 10 pages each, I’m sure you can do it~ 頑張って！
Just started to read the book today and it is, well, hard… Spent around an hour over the first page (it is like 1.5-2 paper pages I guess) and then just gave it up. Instead tried to go forward as far as I am able to follow the general story line - which turned out to be not that unbearable actually. The main difficulty is of course kanji. Many of them I cannot even recognize yet, ehhh… Anyways, will work on it a bit and if I feel eventually that this is too overwhelming then will leave it until lv30 or something/
Still, the book is fab in the beginning. This is the story type I really like - the slice of real life.
I could kiss you.
If it’s too much right now don’t worry about it! You’ll get used to it with time after you learn more kanjis. If you can continue even without understanding everything, that’s fine and very beneficial (as long as you don’t burn yourself out). Otherwise, you can always try to tackle an easier reading, probably a manga, since the narration in novels (even easier ones) is another level above dialogue. Good luck!
