Discussion Guidelines

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. 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) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.
Instructions for Spoiler Tags

Click the cog above the text box and use either the “Hide Details” or “Blur Spoiler” options. The text which says “This text will be hidden” should be replaced with what you are wishing to write. In the case of “Hide Details”, the section in the brackets that is labelled “Summary” can be replaced with whatever you like also (i.e, [details=”Chapter 1, Pg. 1”]).

Hide Details results in the dropdown box like below:

Example

This is an example of the “Hide Details” option.

The “Blur Spoiler” option will simply blur the text it surrounds.

Posting Advice

  • When asking for help, please mention the page number, and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.

  • Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

I’m a definite maybe.

Volume one didn’t really catch my interest, but I feel like it’d be difficult to carry “slice of life of a granny kid” for 11 volumes. That leaves me curious where the series is planning to go with the whole “reincarnation with memories” thing. Will it become a central plot, or will it just be an occasional thing?

The current or upcoming volume is #1, or #2?

Upcoming volume is volume 2. I’ll start a new thread for that once the starting date etc is decided.

If you do want to start from volume 1, the book club for that has just concluded so you should still get a response if you post in the threads for that one.

I’m in the same boat, just slightly interested. I’ll see how I feel about the new clubs starting this week and if neither catches my interest more I’ll probably join this one

The first book hasn’t really caught me but it’s enjoyable enough that i might carry on and join in. I am a bit behind (still have 70pgs left to finish the first volume). But I should be fine for the start date on the 22nd.
I’m very bad at completing things though (bookclubs especially) so it would be nice to prove i can do it at least once.
