Beginner Japanese Book Club // Coming Soon: The Way of the Househusband

That would be long for a manga pick. Even Aria the Masterpiece was only the length of two volumes.

Hmm, that sounds indeed promising! I guess somebody needs to try this out :wink:

Hmm. Maybe if somebody is enthused enough to nominate the first volume of the standard edition instead we should replace it :thinking:

Not gonna be me haha.

No, nor me :grin:

I just got the hard copy and it has the cutest page of stickers in the back!

@FlamySerpent I have downloaded booklive now but I can’t seem to select any text. I should mention, though, so far I’ve only bought one hana to yume issue (so I guess it definetly doesn’t work with mangas) and I downloaded sample pages for Kino’s Journey.

What books did you buy/download so far (maybe ふしぎ駄菓子屋 銭天堂)? And how do you select text? I’d appreciate your help :persevere:

@NicoleRauch In case you’re interested, I tried but I don’t think it is possible to read books bought on booklive on any reader but their own, sadly.

@liannallama Thanks for letting us know about the stickers. Seems like a few people here are jealous. :laughing: For me personally, neither stickers nor any other extras have any impact on my purchase decision and wether to buy a hard copy or the digital version. :wink:

Thank you for the heads up! I had suspected that tbh… So for me, bookwalker it is for the time being.

Yeah, it doesn’t work with mangas because they’re pictures, I guess, and it doesn’t work with samlpes (which is fair too). But it allows you to select text once you buy a book, I was confused by it first time too:3 And for selecting you just hold and drag, nothing complicated
