Intermediate Japanese Book Club (Currently reading: コーヒーが冷めないうちに)

I’d be up for reading Planetes with everyone (even outside of the normal book clubs) as long as it’s in December or later. I don’t plan on placing another order on Amazon until then. But it would be good to know sooner than then to make sure I don’t finally read my English copy at the worst possible time.

I would also be up for reading Planetes! I got the first volume for free on ebookjapan during one of their sales. I’ve heard good things about it.

I got that free copy too, but I never transferred my ebookjapan account to the new website so it’s probably gone by now.

Looks like there will be an extra poll :eyes:

Yep, but I don’t have time to set it up just now. Today, though.

Alright, tie-breaking poll!
(Note: I won’t be policing anything, but please refrain from voting if you do not intend to join afterwards)

I broke it in two parts:
Which book do you most want to read: (You do not have to vote if you like them all; if you like only two, well, think harder)

  • Your Name
  • キッチン
  • 氷菓

0 voters

Which books would you be fine reading along with the book club? (I.e. even if it isn’t your first pick, you still plan to buy it and read with us)

  • Your Name
  • キッチン
  • 氷菓

It looks like you can still transfer if you go to the old website.

Nobody wants to read “the winner” and we might even have another poll after this one if the two others keep being a tie :rofl:

While I wouldn’t mind reading Hyouka, I’m just gonna drop a vote for Kitchen because I think literature books are more likely to encourage meaningful discussion, compared to other genres. Just my two cents

Your Name continues to be a meme I guess? :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve gone ahead and bought Kitchen since I already own Hyouka (haven’t read it yet though).

Well, the second poll is meant as a tie breaker for the tie breaker. So right now 氷菓 is winning.

Well, it’s only been an hour or so, so I feel it a bit early to say that :sweat_smile: That would be hilarious though.

Mystery is likely to encourage discussion in the way of speculation, tho.

Plus, literature is for losers :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s okay if you’re a loser, though. Be proud of it

Definitely agree. That’s why I’m down to read Hyouka but not too big on your name
