Well, as soon as I finished up typing my chapter 4 questions, my tablet fell about a foot down from its perch and cracked the screen, leading to a good half of the screen not recognizing my finger touching it. o.o; I’m super lucky my physical copy of the book just came in, haha.

And the next week is here. From now on, we will be reaching cruising speed, so hopefully it remains manageable for everyone.

Except in week 11 when we go way over the speed limit. :joy:

I’m doing okay so far. I still have one more question to post for chapter 5, but week 2 was manageable overall.

I will post the thread today, but I’m not sure when. Everyone has some カカオ in the meantime.

Never mind. I had the time to put up the thread (not to read the content, though).

I’ve barely started week 2 due to busybusy, but I’m also 50% through Honzuki 9 - what do I do? :caught_durtling:

  • Finish Honzuki 9 first (might take a week or two)
  • Catch up on this book club, Honzuki can wait

Oops, I didn’t announce the previous week (not that it was hard to find, but anyway).
Second part of the “event”.

Well, not much activity last week (that includes me, even though that was one of my favorite parts in the volume…) :sweat_smile:
Hopefully, I’ll get back to commenting this week.

Oof, activity in threads really died down.
Well, at least, I am enjoying recollecting about the story when I put up the threads :sweat_smile:

I’m behind a week on my chapters. :scream: Hopefully I can catch up this weekend and add to the discussion~

I feel kind of bad I basically rushed ahead and read the first 3 volumes. I was planing on rereading chapters each week but the new stuff always looks so interesting. It is literally the distracted boyfriend meme

Dang, very nice; I’m jealous. I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read so far, but it takes me a while to get through it. Have you had to look up much as you’ve read?

I haven’t been participating in the threads at all either, even though there were lots of part I wasn’t fully clear on and could’ve asked about. At the beginning I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of messages (not used to this much activity here in the ABC), then I was late on the reading for a while ^^’ But I’m caught up now! I’ve been mostly enjoying the book although there’s a lot of vocab, and I wish there was more of an overarching story.

Yeah I have to look up a bunch. To be honest the way I’m reading this is not really great for learning but I tend to do that a lot when I’m really interested in a book/manga.

My own posting about ambiguous grammar and stuff has slowed down for myself as well; partly a combination of getting used to the author’s style, partly just getting the point of saying, “screw it, I understand this well enough”, haha. I want to focus more on chatting about the story, see what other people think of it.

Gotcha, gotcha. I figure, even if you’re not doing intensive reading, the sheer flood of info you’re consuming is going to help regardless, right?

How has the book been so far? Have the later chapters been about the same as the earlier ones in terms of story quality, writing quality, etc.?

I haven’t read the book in over a month (up to chapter 9). If I started reading again now I could probably catch up within a week or two, though in that case I’d just be reading to get through it rather than trying to learn and ask questions. I’d probably be better off reading 本好き for fun for a bit and coming back to this sometime later this year after the book club is done. Of course, I could try to read both at the same time, but the chances of me reading any other book once I’ve started a volume of 本好き is pretty low. :sweat_smile:
