I am also slowly realizing I may need to start ‘picking’ my book clubs. But a lot of times what starts as a neutral “eh, I don’t have particularly strong feelings about this one, so why not” read ends up really enjoyable. And there’s a lot of really interesting nominations here, so I really don’t want to. xD
Maybe I can just further de-prioritize other things…
Why did these ordinary housewives scatter the dead body of their friend’s husband?
These housewives work the night shift at a bento factory. They hold an unknown anxiety and despair in their hearts. An unexpected case uncovers their lifestyles and their longing to break free from it. Why did they scatter the corpse of the husband of their friend? Find out in this crime novel!
Thank you for notifying me!! That’s so nice of you!
I think it’ll be difficult for me to get my hands on any Japanese books short-term, so I’m not sure whether I will be able to join (on time). I’ll keep an eye on this thread though, so I can at least try to purchase the book you all choose!
Ding ding ding, it is time! 17 nominations?! That’s insane. Although, I have to admit, it’s much easier to write nominations for this club than for any other. Also, there’s probably more books I want to read here than I have votes to spare, which is always a good problem to have.
Clock strikes 12, thread turns back into a POLLmpkin.
We’ll let it run for at least 2 days, planning to close the poll 2020-07-12T03:00:00Z. We might extend it one more day through the weekend for folks who only log on Saturday/Sunday. You may choose up to five books.
Had to narrow down nine choices for myself. What really ended up helping was simply seeing what had an eBook available; I usually prefer buying physical, but paying for DHL/Fedex shipping has been really eating my wallet lately. :\
I don’t think I’ve posted in this thread yet but I’ve been following along and looking forward to reading some books that didn’t meet the intermediate club’s criteria. I will have to make more time to read though.
This was my strategy as well. It certainly helped narrow the list down. I’m still trying to decide on what to use my last vote on…
Eh, feels like I have too much information to make a fair vote. I voted before knowing how other people voted, based on what I was interested in reading. Changing things after the fact to decide things seems like too much power for any one onion turtle. Just how I see it though.
