NO.6 Volume 1
Current chapter: 5
Start date: Sunday, August 6th, 2017
Okay, so today we open up discussion for Chapter 1 of No.6
We’re going to try to keep the pace one chapter a week, which averages to about 5 pages a day. If most people cannot keep up with this pace we can adjust to allowing more reading time before opening discussions of the next chapter. If it seems like a lot of people can keep up, while the other lot can not, then we can have two discussion threads with different speeds.
Please use spoiler tags for content that would be considered a spoiler, and state where in the book it is. Page number or paragraph number from the start of the chapter (for those who are reading digitally).
We’re discussing grammar, vocab usage, and context, checking that our reading comprehension is right, and interesting plot/character development, ect.
EDIT: Reading pace has been adjusted to one chapter every two weeks, which is about 3 pages a day. Discussion about any place in the book for the beginning through chapter 2 is welcomed. Discussion for chapter 3 will start on 9/17/17.
