Beginner Japanese Book Club // Now Reading: 葬送のフリーレン // Next: ウスズミの果て

Oh hey, I know an ongoing club doing that which updates every Monday.

It seems like you definitely could based on your book club posts. I think it’s also worth considering that natively isn’t dead accurate. For example, Part 1 of JoJo has a lvl 30 ranking, while Parts 6 and 7 are listed as 26 and 27 despite the first volumes being more difficult than Part 1’s (due to court language, slang, etc.). But beginners aren’t usually jumping into those later Parts first. I’m guessing they try Part 1 first when it’s still relatively difficult for them and then either come back to or gradually get better at reading when they try the later Parts.
