Do books clubs ever restart themselves?

I think he means volume 1 manga

I agree. I think in most cases there’s not too much point, because you’ll get less interest from others, and there’s surely something interesting coming up that you could actively take part in instead.

But particularly for some ‘big name’ picks I’d imagine that maybe once every year or even every two years there would be a decent group of people keen to read it together for the motivational aspect, even if most questions have already been asked and answered and it’s all kind of already laid out.

If you’re willing to wait until I’ve ground through the second volume of Zenitendou (after Kiri), I need to read Kiki at some point and I’d appreciate the accountability! I was planning way back to read it with @Momoiro but as always there are other book clubs and life happens.

I’d be down to reread Kiki! I don’t know if I finished it the last time I read it, haha

I’d like to finish Kiki at some point as well. It was the first book I attempted and I didn’t have enough knowledge/time to finish it, so it’d be interesting to go back now and see if it feels any easier (I sure hope so).

Kiki is one I want to read as well, and actually think I could do a book club for since it’s been ages since I last saw the movie, and with school closures looming for the indefinite future, I’d be more available for forum activity/reading-aloud sessions if we did those.

Just to throw my name in the pile for Kiki support :eyes:

Well look at this, we seem to have accidentally created a re-read club for Kiki right here :laughing:

I was not expecting this level of immediate enthusiasm :sweat_smile: I’d be very happy to organise it, but I think @Voi was keen to read Zenitendou vol. 2 together, so I might have to bow out of Kiki if people want to get going asap :slightly_smiling_face:

Though I had a similar feeling when there was a sudden wave of interesting reading the Hyakunin Isshu book. Not… not that we’ve gotten around to doing anything about it…

I was also hoping for this to be a later-in-the-year kind of thing, since I’m currently in too many book clubs.

In related news, though, I do have my copy now!

Okay, guess if we don’t get this moving…

Only tagging people who explicitly said they wanted to read it, but obviously all are welcome.

Sorry for hijacking your thread like this, @IgorTheGreat :sweat_smile: but it’s fitting, at least!

I have it on good authority the Re:Zero book club restarts upon death.

No pressue at all, sorry! I’m obviously available whenever, but didn’t mean to imply we had to start immediately. Who knows when things will actually go back to normal (assuming Japan isn’t able to keep this thing under control, which my hopes aren’t very high for). Thanks for taking initiative even though you’re busy, enjoy Zenitendo 2! It’s still my favorite of the ones I’ve read so far :grin:
