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

Speaking of the break,

@Time @sigolino do you two want to take the week off so we read at the end, or do you still want to meet and read this week?

(I likely won’t be able to join this weekend, if at all probably late and not reading - I have two final papers to complete!)

Aaaaand we’re back! Hope everyone is in shape!

Life went weird suddenly and I couldn’t keep up with my readings D’: I am only two weeks behind, I will try to catch up!

I’m a week (and a half?!) behind… not including that extra week we had. You’re not the only one.

Fair warning: my current location is relying on make-believe to power its WiFi network. I won’t be able to put up the new thread until tomorrow or Sunday JP time.

That’s convenient since I didn’t have much time to read this week and need another day to catch up anyway.

Hey! I’m (for now at least) caught up with my studies… So I’m hoping to start reading along again (from where you guys are) next week… And re-join the read aloud sessions starting NEXT Saturday (this weekend is a friend’s all-day birthday party at a board game cafe, so…)

Could someone who knows the anime/series just drop me a line or two of what point in the story you’re all at/supposed to be at?

I have one guess of one incident Yuki’s bookmark meeting request… but I don’t know if you guys have started/read the result of that yet. Kyon at least sitting in her apartment with tea - nevermind the discussion. Really want to make sure I don’t jump in with any assumptions of where people are with the plot.

I’m standing beside 3 Japanese girls conversing quickly while waiting for the bus and trying to understand their breakneck speeds… 「そうそうそう。。。。 something something に。」「うん」… Totally stressing the particles!
But now another language is behind me louder than the girls!

Aww… They sat at the rear of the bus… But before they got on… だけど。。。ご飯。

Listening fail…

I know neither the series nor the anime, but I’m up to date with the club.
Things that happened:

Haruhi stole a computer, used a bunny girl suit to distribute pamphlets, got a website and email adresse but no email so far.
A transfer student came, as she hoped and she got him to join the club. We know nothing about him so far.
Big reveal: 長門 invited キョン to her place and told him she is a humanoid interface watching on ハルヒ. She also mentioned why she is here.
キョン is confused.
We are speculating in this week’s thread about all that.

Awesome, thanks! That last thing was what I was looking for. Forgot about Koizumi being a transfer student, but it’s good to know he’s in the picture now.

Off I go to the current week’s thread! (Hopefully I’ll have time to catch up on all the intervening weeks later.)

Well, I just realized we will be half way through the next book by the time we are done with this one…

I don’t suppose anyone would be up to increase the speed?

Edit: Anyway, new thread is up.

Personally I think it’s fine. That is to say, I don’t want to increase the speed, really.

For one thing, the page count is already pretty high by Intermediate book club standards for people reading both Haruhi and Konbini at 25ish pages. The next book will start off with (or work up to) 15 pages a week, so that will already be at least 30 with both books.

For another, considering that roughly half the people in the participation polls are voted they’re still reading but behind, increasing the pace seems… couter intuitive.

Also, I’m behind on Haruhi to somehow catch up with ReZero… :eyes:
