時をかける少女 Home Thread (Beginner Book Club)

Welcome to the Book Club :blush:

This is our first time reading a book that’s available on FloFlo, so I imagine it will be a new experience for all of us! What exactly are you finding isn’t ‘working’ for you?

Also, I haven’t even bought the book yet, so you’re way ahead of me there :joy:

Ahh okay! I didn’t realize that this was the first time the beginner club was using FloFlo as well. I’ll just wait until we get the ball rolling with the story; then re-evaluate using FloFlo or not.

The power of eReading! My book came in the mail almost instantly, and for like $3 :sunglasses:

This is also my first time in a book club. So I am going to start off the newbe questions: When are we gonna start?

It’s in the thread title. :slight_smile:

I’m going to put up the full schedule in the next few days.

Managed to pick up a physical copy for £6 on Amazon which should hopefully arrive in time! I’m interested to see whether I work better with a physical book than I do with a digital one (and I’ve wanted to read this ever since I saw the movie like a decade ago, so I’m quite excited!)

Hey, I’m trying to login to the japanese amazon site, but it says the password is wrong. I’m using the same password that I login in with to the USA site, I don’t understand why i can’t login. I tried to open a new user, but it says I have one already.
any one have an idea?

Hmm. You have to have different account for the different Amazons, so the fact that it says you have one already makes me think you must have set up an Amazon.co.jp account in the past, but using a different password from your US one?

I’ve never used the japanese one… I didn’t know you use different users for each amazon site, I only use the US one.

ok, I opened a new account, and I get this message when I enter the screen to buy the ebook:
“このタイトルは現在ご購入いただけません。初めてKindle本をご購入される場合は、「コンテンツと端末の管理」の設定から1-Click設定をおこなってください。”
I think they want me to activate 1-click option, right? I activate it in the account setting, under “1-Click 設定” but it still show me this message.
any help?

You need to change you address to a Japanese one, otherwise it won’t let you buy ebooks.

Here’s a very useful guide from one of our users on how to do this (side note: I think you can change amazon.jp language to English now, so it can make things easier, if you’re lost in all that Japanese :grinning:)

thanks! I didn’t notice I could change it to english!
Now I see that it says the ebook version is not avialible, yet in japanese it says something with 1-click…
I can only see the paperback option, it suppose to have a ebook version, no?

The only way I could get Amazon JP to let me buy ebooks was to register a Japanese postage address on there - this was a while back though, and I switched to ebooksjapan as Amazon just wasn’t as easy to use (getting the kindle app to work on my phone is impossible!!)

I got the address from one of those postage services, where you register to be able to buy goods from Japan from places which don’t normally ship outside of Japan, and you pay postage fees to them whenever you buy something. Haven’t needed to actually use it for posting stuff yet, as since then everywhere I’ve needed to shop ships to the UK pretty reasonably!!

Basically what KeitoNee said, you need to change the region in the Kindle options (by entering a valid Japanese address) for it to let you buy the ebook version (see the guide I linked you in my previous post and find the part about changing the region; although the screens there are from the Japanese version of the site you should be able to find it even easier in English :wink:).
Otherwise it will tell you that ebook is not available in your region and you won’t be able to add it to your cart.

yeah, I did it!! I manage to buy it!
but now it says I need to buy a kindle… how do I send it to my kindle?
why can’t the USA amazon and the Japanese one just get alonge?

Unfortunately you can’t use amazon.jp and other amazon library (the USA or UK one) at the same time on your Kindle. If you want to read books you bought on amazon.jp you need to log in on your device with your Japanese account (that or get another Kindle for Japanese library :rofl:)

I successed! I downloaded the kindle app to my smartphone, I’ll read the book there!
Thanks for the help guys
