Has the deep, dark secret to Bookwalker’s sales finally been uncovered???
I only kid. It surprises me because normally when I hear about a Bookwalker sale on something I want to buy, I check Kobo only to find it’s a higher (regular) price there. (Some manga get the same sale at the same time across platforms, which is why I check.)
If I didn’t rely on Kobo for the ease of removing DRM so I can read on any device I choose, I’d definitely be looking at Bookwalker.
Hi guys. Im new to the club and I hope to join in with the next book/manga that is chosen. It looks like that’ll be Mitsuboshi Colors. Is only the first book/volume being read? And do we read things on a week to week basis and multiple volumes or just the first one?
Welcome Meeks. We would read volume one, and then depending on interest levels there is often interest in a spin off book club to continue reading later volumes.
Once the book is confirmed a home page for the book will be set up and a reading schedule agreed. Usually this would be a chapter a week, depending on the length of the chapters and text density. The club is aimed at absolute beginners so we try and keep the pace relatively slow.
Thank you, Micki! Thats perfect. About to pick up Mitsuboshi Colours volume 1 and Happiness (first 3 volumes are free atm! In case anyone is interested) through Bookwalker. Looking forward to joining in with you all going forward!
The votes are in! Mitsuboshi colours was the clear winner and will be our next book starting around Nov 13th. It was a close race for second place but Happiness just won out, so unless there are any objections we’ll schedule that one afterwards.
If you ever wondered when it might be time to take the jump to the next level: Here is your chance ! The Beginner Book Club is currently voting and if you’re interested you could have a look at their proposals - maybe there is something in it for you?
Also, I can reassure that the Beginner Club gang is as friendly and helpful as the people you’ve met in here, so don’t be shy and try it out!
With an 11 week schedule for the next book, the book after that would be scheduled to start on Feb 5th. Assuming we go with the plan of reading the runner up in the poll afterwards, we’ll need someone to volunteer to run the Happiness book club. @eieio it was your pick so you are welcome to run the club. Otherwise would anyone else like to run this one?
