Oh… boy… Just choose whatever
I’m pretty sure that it is in the 10分で読める物語 二年生 thread bylaws that in the event of a tie, the thread creator/organizer casts the deciding vote…
Correct, and I decided, that we will start at the 13th of august, if it‘s a tie

@emucat sorry, that we won‘t start this week. I hope you don‘t abandon us
Does that mean no you won’t abandon us? Awesome!
Of course he won‘t abandon us. i‘m sure of it.
I mean, look at him. He‘s a frog and frogs are loyal, aren‘t they?
It took me close to 2 hours to read the 2nd story in the grade 1 book. The lack of kanji really slowed me down. I found I was constantly looking up words I know already know in their kanji form but didn’t recognise in hiragana. I felt like I took a giant leap backwards on my Japanese journey at the time, but on reflection, it was a learning experience so actually a good thing
Too bad this doesn’t have an ebook version. Unfortunately, shipping books from Japan is quite expensive… it usually more than doubles the cost of the book(s). I’ll see if I can manage to squeeze it in next month.
How does it compare to the Grade 2 book? Are we in for a similar experience? Interesting that having WaniKani be part of my early Japanese learning, I have a similar issue in that kanji is easier for me to deal with than streams of hiragana. For example, while I was reading the other day, I came across わかる and it took me a second (okay minute) to recognize it as 分かる. However, I wonder if that is how the JLPT N5 exam is.
I found it on USA Amazon and ordered it. However, I ordered it on August 26 and I am yet to receive it. If you are interested, you can find a link to in in my previous post.
Grade 2 has a little bit more kanji, but I believe the grammar is pretty similar
Sadly this option is even slightly more expensive. I’ll just order it from Amazon JP next month. I do want to buy another book from there anyway. Thanks though!
