3月のライオン (March Comes in Like a Lion) Book Club🦁🤓

Go to the Reading category and hit New Topic. I guess they’re called topics here not threads.

I waaant to try reading along, but I’m using September to finish up some manga volumes I’m reading. So at best I might try the free preview of chapter 1 to see how it goes for me in October.

As for new threads, one of the earliest (and longest) book club reads, the Aria manga series, retained a new thread each week throughout all 70 chapters. The first thread had 149 comments, and the last thread had 25 comments.

Another early book club, the Yotsuba&! manga series, went with one thread per volume. The first thread thus garnered 936 comments, with the most recent thread reaching 130 comments after the volume was finished. (Note that both clubs’ first threads have also had comments from readers starting the series much later.)

My Sailormoon book club does one thread per story arc (about three volumes length), but that only has a few readers, and minimal conversation.

Is there a schedule somewhere that I’m missing? Are we reading a chapter a week, or?

Thanks @Wildjinjer for creating the vocab sheet, it makes my reading so much easier :slight_smile:

If I have questions (on ch1 or others), should I post them on this thread or will this be divided to thread per chapter in the future?

There is now!
I put the schedule, with links to the first thread for chapter discussion on the first post of this thread.

Thee were other requests for sub-threads, so I’ve created that!
Since this is a fairly small book club, I decided to divide the discussion threads into three chapter chunks. If discussion gets lengthy, I can always change it to smaller chunks later.

I’m a bit behind on other clubs, so I will catch up in a week or two or three or four

Week 2 is upon us!
Discussion will continue to be in the same place.

I’ve already added some vocabulary for chapter 2. Anyone who wants to add page numbers is a kind and generous soul.

It’s week four!

The vocabulary list is blank this week (sorry! I didn’t pre-read it!), so please help me fill it in.

I started a new thread for any discussion of chapters 4-6.

Welcome to Week 6!

The discussion for this chapter will continue in the same place.

We only have 4 weeks left, so it’s time to think about whether we want to continue this book club past the first volume. Since there always seems to be people in the “I’ve already read this part” category, there an option to increase the pace.

  • I want to keep reading this series at the same pace (one chapter per week).
  • I want to keep reading this series, but at a faster pace.
  • One volume is enough for me.
