Hi jprspereira, would you kindly add me to the member list, I can’t edit the post. Thanks for organising it, I was thinking of joining the former book club when my Japanese would be better. But a beginner book club is a fantastic idea.
Errr… now I’m stuck at deciding whether to join Autumn Prison in the original book club or joining here… I am definitely a beginner, and I would like to read Yotsubato, but I already read a few pages of Autumn Prison and I’d like reading that too
If I’m able to read Autumn Prison (still waiting for it to arrive) I’ll definitely join the original group, but since this group is easier I will be able to do both =)
I have a feeling I’m not ready for it though. But if it really is easy enough for N5 and N4 to join in, we might not need to start a book here until after Autumn Prison, or decide to do something especially easy like Yotsubato! to make it easier to do both =)
If it’s Yotsuba, I’d join for sure. I already have them all and I really enjoy them. Would be very happy to read them again. Plus, I think anyone who’s considering Autumn Prison ought to be able to fit one volume of Yotsuba alongside it without too much difficulty.
Ooh I was recently recommended the anime and watched the first few eps, like it a lot so far. I feel like it would definitely be a fun read! It’s basically a dozen mini rom-coms all rolled into one, and cut so that you just see the funniest parts. Apparently it’s a 4-panel manga? The succinct nature of each story might make it easier to understand (or easier to just skip to the next part if you don’t).
