結婚しても恋してる Home Thread (Absolute Beginner Book Club)

I think I might be even lower than a beginner. ;__; Maybe I can join when I feel more confident? It will probably be a different manga or novel, right?

I hope you feel better soon. ^^

I’ve made the file (just used the template from the shirokuma file), but no vocab yet since my copy is in in the mail.

Please tell me if the link above doesn’t work!

I’ve seem some samples online and it seems a little easier than シロクマカフェ, so I hope things go more smoothly with this one!

Ps: I’ve included a little sample of the vocab, just to give an idea how it goes, in case anyone else want to give it a try, but the pages are probably all wrong since it’s from the online sample.

Do you mind, if I copy your post for the 10分 thread?

@FlamySerpent you are very productive despite being ill! Thanks for setting up this up. Having an ebook available is such a bonus, bought and downloaded my copy in five minutes rather than a month wait for delivery plus crazy shipping charges!

Can we figure out the page numbers? The contents list says this:

This page is 3 pages before the contents page and is page 3 of 129 on my ebook

And this one comes straight after the contents. It looks like the start of chapter 1, and is page 9 of 129 on my ebook:

Does anyone have the physical book so we can clarify the page numbers for the vocab sheet?

This book is also going to be running at the same time: Absolute Beginner Book Club (Now reading: チーズスイートホーム ) (Next: 結婚しても恋してる)

Not sure whether it’s any easier than this manga, but there are some sample pages at tje link you could take a look at to see :slightly_smiling_face:

Of course not, I’m also copying other book clubs’ pattern, so :eyes:

Aww thank you:3 I’m feeling much better, but not for reviews:DD I’m conserving my strength for jlpt tomorrow:D

And also yes! I also got the ebook, although I think it has a second page for contents too, so… 8 chapters? I think it has a quite a lot of text, so maybe 1 chapter a week is a bit too much for absolute beginners? :thinking: I don’t know, what do you all think?

I’ve added the other contents page to my post above. The pages are very variable, the pages I posted above I think should be about a day’s reading, but there are other pages which are very light. Maybe 2 weeks per chapter to start and see how we get on?

Its probably easier to split it by stories rather than chapters. So a certain amount of pages per week (10ish?) and then split where a story ends. I’m away from my laptop but i can give more concrete examples when i get home

Edit: since some people don’t read every day, so intead they could read each story in one sitting, and read 3 or something stories per week

I’ll join! I just got the ebook from Yahoo (and with a sweet 50% discount) (^^♪

I think it’s basically a rule for me to say “I’m really looking forward to this one!” in every home thread at this point.
Even though I already read the entire first volume the other week. I’m keen to read again. So cute!

Thank you!

@Radish8 Ah, I feel embarrassed. I thought that was something about cheese at first. A Cheese’s Sweet Home… =-= It’s sad because I actually watched Chi’s Sweet Home. ^^; It might be easier, so I will try. Thank you!

How did it go?

It’s probably easier to divide the readings by stories rather than chapters, so here are the lengths of the individual short stories:
(the chapters contain stories that fit a certain theme, but otherwise don’t mean anything)

Omg, you’re a life saver, thank you!! :bowing_woman: :yellow_heart: Is something around 10-12 pages a week would be okay, or should we go slower for this club?

Thought I should mention that we’ve had some success in the Beginners’ Club with slowing down the pace for the first few weeks so that people have more chance to get into it. So e.g. if we’re planning to read a chapter per week overall we might spend two weeks on the first, or if we’re going to read about 12 pages a week we might do 6, 8, and 10 pages for the first three weeks.

Just an idea to consider!

Oooh sounds like a great idea. I’m definitely noticing so far with my first book with the book club (チー) that it is getting easier to read the more I get into its style. So actually baking that into the schedule seems like a good idea. Starting a bit slow so people have a chance to get into the reading of it (and hopefully get hooked :wink: ) and then go to a slightly faster pace.

Sometime after August 9 since that is when we finished Chi’s Sweet Home. I’d assume.
