Yes! I have had a long list of clubs to ketchup with!
Don’t take @Kumirei too seriously or it’ll shave 10 years off your life!
Okay, we have finally hit the shortest chapter since the second. Just nine pages per week for both weeks of this chapter!
As promised, another 9-pager as we wrap up the penultimate chapter!
Have people found the ease in pace noticeable these last few weeks?
I’m posting a little early today because I’m a bit busy this evening.
YOU ARE NEARLY THERE!!
seriously, hang in there - even if you’re behind, the finish line is in sight!
I’m making a mammoth effort to try to catch up! I think I’ll finish chapter 10 today, I’ve got 4-5 pages left.
Edit: finished chapter 10. It’s 4am…
My one-week vacation starts today. And, thanks to a certain spiky virus, Thanksgiving is cancelled this year. As such, I’m going to spend this week leisurely finishing off the majority of the chapter.
Kinda the same here, I started with ch.10 yesterday, but I’m still trying to finish in time with the club’s schedule. While reading (almost) every day and catching up is really cool, sometimes it’s just tough…
Congrats again to everyone that’s finished! Is there any plan to dig into the second book? Or is コンビニ人間 what people are going to focus on next? Trying to figure out what to do myself. I’ve got Yuru Camp, but Kiki was nice as a more involved read. Wondering if コンビニ人間 would be feasible for me to stumble through…
I was also curious as to potential interest in Book 2.
I bought the box set, so I expect I’ll dive in eventually, but it’d be more fun to have the full book club experience.
- Yes, I’m down to dive in whenever!
- Yes, but I need some cooldown time before I’m ready to start book 2.
- No, I finished/will finish this book, and that’s good enough for me.
Especially if you’re running the book club
I do think it’s funny that absolutely nobody, myself included, is ready to just dive face-first into book 2. Need some rest first.
I have to finish volume one first but yes I want to read all the other books one day…
I can never seem to align my life with reading this book with this club.
I’m reading it now though, 2 pages a day, now on Chapter 3. Is anyone else still reading it and would you like a reading partner?
I got mine in the mail the other day but haven’t started reading it as yet. How are you finding it difficulty wise?
When I started at Chapter 1, it was somewhat difficult. I have to read it with a dictionary for sure. My copy also doesn’t have any furigana, which I like actually. I can never tell if I’m reading the kanji myself or not with furigana. But it does make for slow reading.
Now that I’m at Chapter 3, I’m using a system that helps. Before I start reading, I use the vocab sheet linked above to highlight the vocab words. Then I read my two pages and it’s slightly smoother. It’s not so difficult to read and it’s a fun story. Very whimsical.
Damn no chance for me to catch up. Just gotta go on my own pace damn school takes up most of my time…oof
Where are you at in the book?
