Oh! Seems I miscalculated the start date for the next club
If the participants of the Nausicaä club agree, we can move the start date forward one week, but I don’t know how this will work out as everybody needs to order physically? Any opinion on that one @Belthazar ?
The Halloween/Spooky Summer Book Club is currently voting for its first official pick. We’ll start reading in July or August, and the schedule will probably be informal if it exists at all. If you’re interested in a spooky read, come vote here:
Is the plan to start マリアビートル at the end of July? I’m very excited for that pick. Who doesn’t love trains?
Although I’m probably very quick to overload myself between this and Spooky Summer and still not being finished with 1Q84… (and I’m sure I’ll end up delaying all of it to read the volumes of Shadow House that came out while I was away)
I took the liberty of making the list of previous books more prominent in the top post. I always thought it was a pity that it was hidden under “Archive > Book Polls and Winners”, and this seems more in line with other books clubs. But if you all think it takes too much space, we can hide it under a details tag.
Edit: I tried to make the table more compact so that the titles don’t wrap on mobile, but I don’t know if it’s better. We could put the extra info in another table but then it’s more work to edit…
Quick shout out that the Natively Mystery Book Club is now voting!
The poll runs for 7 days and we have 18 books to choose from! Most of them fall in the ABC level and our speed tends to be around 30-50 pages a week*; a few are on the easier side (mid 20s Natively level).
*we tend to start slower and ramp up as people get impatient to know the solution to the mystery
