I mean. I’m keeping pace each week now after catching up, but did read a good chunk of the volume in one sitting.
So many people are still reading, but so few people are commenting! Is this typical of recent spinoff book clubs? (I haven’t joined in spinoff club since Aria!)
There’s not much commenting in the Spy Family offshoot, but I think only about 5 readers! When it comes to シャドーハウス, I read ahead so haven’t been commenting so much. But the club will catch me shortly as I decided to wait.
When the club starts volume 3, I’ll actually re-read the first bit as it’s been a while.
I’m up to volume 10, so I definitely won’t be leading any conversations about a chapter. I reread or skimmed some chapters when people had questions/comments, but I’m not planning to reread the whole series or anything like that.
In my experience, it does seem to be typical, although it varies based on who’s reading along and what (if) they post.
I keep going between “just barely caught up” and “only one chapter behind” as I do my no-furigana reading outside of Migaku Reader, so it easily ends up out-of-sight, out-of-mind when I pull up Migaku Reader to get some reading in.
Volume three’s thread is now available:
Did they remove it?
The three-replies-in-a-row limit doesn’t apply to the topic starter. If it did, a lot of study logs would be in trouble
Aaaah, that must be it, then.
I do have some topics to my name.
I am not sure of the actual limitation, but 3 replies over several days probably isn’t a problem, but rather like 3 replies within hour. Perhaps the real limit is 3 replies in 24 hour?
I haven’t tested myself of 3 replies over several days where I am not OP, though.
I’d read ahead while the original book club was going but because of work I haven’t made a start on volume 3 - which I will pick up today so I can finally read along with you guys!
Due to university starting a few weeks ago I haven’t really been able to keep up (just now starting chapters 23 and 24 of vol. 2) but I’ll definitely be joining the third volume as soon as I can! I’ve certainly been enjoying the series even though I haven’t been able to be very active here either
And once again, many thanks to @ChristopherFritz for running the club!
Sorry if I’ve missed it, but when are we starting volume 4?
Ah, that reminds me, I forgot to post about it. Considering we’ve been rolling right from one volume to the next without breaks, I figured I’d do the volume 4 post on Thursday (my time), then the “start reading this week” post on Friday (usual time).
For some reason, I keep thinking today’s Tuesday when it’s actually Thursday, so I’m a bit off schedule… Looks like I’ll be getting that post up in the next hour or so!
Volume 4’s thread is live!
now I really am 1 whole vol behind!!! haha
Due to life being busy, I managed to stop at the end of volume 3 again to wait for the club. (Ok so I may have read the first 5 pages or so of volume 4.)
Being behind with everything else meant I stopped there. And I’ve now got about 5 other clubs to catch up to before I let myself read ahead again. Probably.
The beginner book club is currently holding a poll on what we will read next! Head over there if you are interested and haven’t done so
@ChristopherFritz It took me far to long to recognize you with your new profile picture
It’s my first time with an avatar image here that isn’t my Mii =D
I’m just glad someone is carrying on the Urushi avatar tradition while I’ve been using other characters for a bit!
