涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 Home Thread (Intermediate Book Club)

Yessss I’d assumed they’d all just be the same grey but the little pop of colour on the grey makes it look so nice as a set!

Oh god we are starting so soon.
I just bought the book and I’m scared to start reading… the first page only has two sentences (at this completely arbitrary ebook text size). Send help.

Also, I have to work this weekend and my busy level was raised up to defcon 4. So I’m going to post the thread a bit later today (JP time).
Nobody panics, this is fine.

According to Floflo, this is harder than 獣の奏者. Maybe I should go read that now like @Naphthalene keeps telling me.

Cons: we will probably die
Pros: if somehow we don’t die this could be the next book :eyes:

It’s technically longer than our allowed book size (by 10 pages).

Only 10 pages… I won’t tell them if you don’t :shushing_face:

But it would mean reading for 24 weeks at a pace of 15 pages a week, which is not ideal.

Yeah, probably not then.

Part of me really wants to follow along with this one. I haven’t seen the anime but I’ve been curious about it and it would help to have something every week to work on. At the same time, I worry about committing to anything because my focus tends to be incredibly poor :neutral_face:

That’s the beauty of committing when you have short focus span. You force yourself to focus otherwise the crabigators will hunt you. It works :smile:

The problem is that I can’t really…read books. It’s not a language problem, just quite a bad focus issue :sweat: I can get myself to focus if I’m doing textbook readings for class but anything else seems to go like whoooosh. I love reading in general and reading in Japanese specifically but I keep getting in my own way. But maybe if I take it just one page at a time it will go better. How many pages a day is it? (sorry if this has already been stated. It’s kinda hard for me to scroll up through the thread atm)

Usually about 15 pages per week, so two per day. :slight_smile:

Ok I can give it a shot. I didn’t know that about the thread title thing. Thanks for the tip! The forums lag like crazy for me rn so I can use all the help I can get.

Edit: one of the illustrations in the beginning makes me quite uncomfortable. I may have to end up passing on this one. Maybe another time though :slightly_smiling_face:

Me as well, I was invited to a conference, and it’s all day… I may not get to try reading at all today.
