So, today @shuly unknowingly reminded me when we were talking about reading vs. listening to Japanese
In the Intermediate Book Club we have been running a weekly Read Aloud session for the last couple of books, and I like to think of it as being a success (although right now there are not too many people participating, sadly). We also tried such a session for Zenitendou, and it worked well for a few weeks, but then somehow fell apart, I guess… Anyway, why not try it for this book again, if a few people are interested?
First for some basic rules: If you want to join, you can of course decide whether you just want to listen in, whether you want to type in the chat (in English), whether you want to speak (in English) or whether you want to read a bit of text aloud (in Japanese ofc). You can read as much or as little as you want - one sentence is also ok. But maybe the others will stop you at some point when you read too much lol
We will not only read the text but also clarify questions or discuss the contents in general as we go. You can always chime in and ask something.
So, bottomline: everything can - nothing needs to.
Now for the polling:
- Do you want to meet like once a week when we are reading The Mysterious Town and read aloud and/or listen along with people reading aloud on Discord together, given the date and time suits you?
- Maybe…Not sure yet.
- If you are interested or maybe interested, what weekday would work for you? I am working from the assumption that weekends will be best for people and for dealing with timezones, but if it is not, I will repoll to account for that.
- Some other day
