[2024] 多読/extensive reading challenge

Well, I decided tot go with ビブリア for now. Volume 6 was so good, and dealt with (I thought) all the loose ends that we had left, so I thought it could have been a good point to end the series and wondered what the last volume could possibly be about. Except there’s indeed still one major plot point that hasn’t been elucidated: why did 栞子’s mother disappear 10 years ago. We know it was to find a book (and that she hasn’t succeeded yet), but that’s it. Still, I thought that that level of information was good enough. It made her look like a ruthless person who will go to any extreme to get the things she wants, a personality trait that has been otherwise confirmed by other events. I don’t think giving her a more specific justification is necessary in terms of story.
Still, that means I get to read more of this series, so I’m okay with that.
I’m currently in the middle of the first part and It’s also hilarious to see what events and characters we are being reminded of. :joy: That’s like the most obvious Chekhov’s gun ever.
