That has confused me a couple of times as well. :sweat_smile:

Hello everyone! This is my first time joining the book club, or in general participating in anything like this! I adore reading but my level is quite low. So, I look forward to struggling to understand everything knowing it will result in improvement!

I wanted to write a comment for 2 reasons, 1st is to simply say hello! and the 2nd is to get some confirmation on how the book club works. My understanding is as thus. Together by ourselves we manage our time, keeping in line with the timeframe written in the OP, reading along with the part of the story for the week. Any questions we might have we can, keeping in mind not to spoil anything, ask questions here in this thread. There is a vocabulary list which is the result of participants working together, and adding what they can, and using it when they want to in order to help their understanding of the text.

I often don’t even know when i have questions when I probably should have questions, but I’ll do my best to stay active and read along faithfully!

Welcome :blush:

Yup, that‘s exactly the idea!
(… at least that‘s how I‘ve been understanding and doing it too :crazy_face::sweat_smile::upside_down_face:)

You can also discuss about or comment on the story in general (up to the part being read - with spoilers, too, of course) without actually asking questions in that sense

And no-one will be mad at you or keep you accountable or anything if you fall behind on schedule - the vocabulary list and the discussions will stay online so you can always catch up and come back or finish a book on your own :slight_smile:

I just wanted to clarify that if it is questions about language from a specific week, or you’re talking about the story, it is better to post it in the correct weekly thread. For example, for pages 3-16, the ones we are reading this week, this thread is the right place to post.

You’ll find the links in the first post, and when a new week starts, the new link will typically be put in a post too, to alert everyone. :blush:

Uuuh
You wanna get mad at me or hold me accountable for not even having been able to start Volume 3 of Shadows House yet? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::joy::see_no_evil::sweat_smile:
… I am quite ashamed about it tbh… :smirk::see_no_evil::sweat::see_no_evil::sweat_smile:

And yes, of course, what @MissDagger said :see_no_evil: I somehow missed that point, excuse my drowsy morning self :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::sweat_smile:

Thank you so much! I was wondering why I was not seeing any conversation about this week’s reading! I thought perhaps this book wasn’t so popular etc. It seems I just missed that each weekly reading had its own thread so thank you for pointing that out, I hadn’t noticed!
