I have filled out vocab for chapter 8. Of course, if there are other words people want to add, they should definitely feel free to do so! :grin:

I’ve also done the page numbers for all words I added, but as always, somebody with a physical copy should double-check those, especially for any words that sit on the border of pages. I would have done the Kindle %, but my percentage is never consistent on there for some reason. If I flip back and forth between pages, it’s like it gets stuck on a number, then suddenly jumps again, so I didn’t bother because I don’t trust it to be accurate in any way.

I read ahead today and added some vocab for ch 9-11, though it’s just most of what I had to look up and was reasonably certain hadn’t shown up earlier in the book, as well as all the new names, so there’s certainly going to be vocab items I passed over that others may want to add when we get to those chapters. I have the physical copy so those page numbers are accurate. I can’t promise that I’ll double-check the ch 8 page numbers, but I will if I remember and have the spoons to.

Finally got around to reading Chapter 10 today. I’ve had a lot of reading I’ve been doing this week! :laughing:

Everything okay, @sumsum? I haven’t been able to find a Chapter 10 thread up yet. :astonished:

It was a little late. I should probably have set an alarm each week :see_no_evil: Sometimes I only remember when I read myself (oopsie)

Whew. I just finished up my finals, I’ve been off Japanese reading since mid-way through chapter 8, so I have some catching up to do. Though luckily, I do have the free time to do so lol

Don’t worry about it. Rather: Thanks for all your work organizing the book club for us!

…it’s not like I’m ready to start with chapter 12 anyway, with chapter 11 being especially difficult for me.

Indeed, thank you very much @sumsum, and no worries at all :smiley:

Ahah, well, there’s probably no need to stress over every detail though

I’m still planning to finish reading this book, but I think you lost me somewhere around chapter 3/4 :sweat_smile:

Almost on time :sheep:

After this it’s only the あとがき left :astonished:

I feel a bit bad because I’m not really participating currently as I’m also lagging behind :cry: I’d say in theory the tempo was right for me, but then life got super duper busy and so I’m like aahhh panic mode! But I still enjoy reading you peoples thoughts when I get to a chapter :heart: So thank you everyone for participating so much :heart_hands:
