Having decided to “read ahead a bit into Chapter 7”, and shortly after switching this to “finishing the entire volume”, I think it will be ok to increase the speed later in this volume.
Chapter 7 is by far the densest in terms of dialogue. From there not only is there less dialogue, but it was also much easier to decipher. So I would say the last 2 chapters can be done in a week each.
Also I feel most people will not be able to keep from finishing the chapter once they start!
Thanks! That’s good to know. It’s hard to judge beforehand how hard a chapter is going to be. I almost thought chapter 6 would be bad when they had the TV on with the news, but I was happily relieved it wasn’t like the news from volume 1.
I’ll send out a poll when we’re mid-chapter 7 to see when people want to speed up.
Just started the reading, read the first 15 pages of the first volume, and wow, very impressed by the Vocab sheet, it helps a lot that it has the onomatopaes listed! Thanks a lot to all the contributors, from me and from all the readers from the future!
