Absolute Beginners Book Club // Now Reading: Granny Girl Hinata chan!

It’s Time To Vote For The Next Book!

If you are interested in reading along with the Absolute Beginner Book Club then please feel free to vote in this poll.

The list of options are below. Clicking on the book/manga name for each title will take you to the nomination post. This contains some information about the book and some example pages.

The difficulty rating is a very approximate rating based on feedback from people looking at the sample pages. A score of 3 is judged “just right” for the club, a higher score is harder, a lower score is easier.

You have 3 votes and you can change them up until the poll closes. We usually keep the poll open for a few days until the votes dry up.

The approximate start date for the next book is May 14th 2022.
