Vocabulary

Please read the guidelines on the first page before adding any words.

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネトバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
  3. Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) need to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as such.

:boom: :skull_and_crossbones: :bomb: :sparkler:

Come to mind when I try to associate the title to emoji. This will probably be easier once we’ve started reading! :smiley:

Nice! I’ll go with :skull_and_crossbones: for now and if we find one later that might be even more fitting, we can always change it :grin:

Now, as for the reading schedule… This book is a bit shorter than 地球星人, so I figured we could read it in 15 weeks rather than 16:

Perhaps someone with the physical book could check the page numbers? I based the division into weeks on the number of characters per week (I have the whole text in a Word file so that’s easy to go by), but I have no idea what it actually looks like on a page.

Thanks! The page counts per week look pretty reasonable :grin:

I took the liberty of adding it as-is to the main post. Though if anyone has any reservations about the schedule, do please let me know!

Due to an unfortunate encounter with the coronavirus I haven’t been able to read (let alone discuss) last week’s reading yet, but rest assured I’ll be catching up asap.
