Update: I closed the survey for now! Thank you all for the recommendations
Hey all you book lovers
I have a favor to ask you, fellow WaniKanians, to help inspire Japanese learners out there!
I’m planning to write an article to introduce Japanese books (excluding graded readers) to beginners, and I’d love your recommendations! I’ve created a survey, so if you can submit it with your Japanese book recommendation, I would appreciate it🙇♂️
Here’s the survey link:
Before starting the survey, please read the following.
What level of beginners am I asking about?
I am also thinking about making this a series for different levels of learners (only if the article goes well🙃), but for this time around, it would be for someone who’s starting to explore non-graded readers. Something like “The Beginner Book Club” level, rather than the “Absolute Beginner Book Club,” WaniKani book club members define here. It’s just a rough estimate but that would be someone around JLPT N4 level, WaniKani Levels 10 ~ 20. What books would you suggest reading to your fellow Japanese learners at this level?
What kind of books am I asking for?
- We’re excluding graded-readers this time.
- Manga or books with illustrations are welcome.
Depends on how it goes, but I’ll keep this survey open at least for the next couple of weeks! If you have any questions, please comment in this thread to let us know. I will be on staycation for the next two weeks so I might be slow to responding, but I promise I, or my helper @RachelG will get back to you! Thank you so much.
