Keeping track of your readings


#21

I’m a tracking addict so I just had to make a profile.
I didn’t want to fill my goodreads profile with manga since I only want to track books in there, but I wanted to track my japanese readings so this is a good solution.

By the way, @Belerith, I use Grouvee for tracking videogames and I don’t know if it’s the best but if works just fine for me. You can track games played/playing/blacklog/wishlist etc. Plus set a start/end time, total playtime, rating and things like that for the games you have played.

I love seeing how influenced by the books clubs everybody’s profiles are :grin:

I’ve set up an account, but I’m gonna have to think a bit about when I read some of my first books… For anyone else who didn’t know, I had to look up 積読 - read つんどく and in this context means ‘books bought but not read’. Basically, your book stockpile :grin:


#23

Thanks! I’ll definitely check it out. That’s all I want, just as a bit of a motivation to follow through on my Japanese games.

Haha, yeah, I also first looked up a couple of the headers until I sort of understood what everything was. If you have the time and motivation, I think now is the best time… says me, who’s been procrastinating on her one page for today, lol. But yeah. Gonna follow my own advice after reviews.


#24

I’ll give it a try!

Edit:
Should we try making a Wanikani コミュニティ? If people are interested in joining, I’d be interested in going through the steps to try to set one up.


#25

Ooh, you can do that? I didn’t even look at anything except the bookshelves.

Just checked it out, looks simple enough to be worth the effort - I think it’s a good idea. :slight_smile: Do you know what they’re for? Shared collections of books? Forum styled book reviews?


#26

Clicking on some of the existing communities, it looks like they’re basically a mini discussion forum. So it’s probably not something that we need since we have this forum, but it might be fun to try!


#27

It does sound fun. :slight_smile: We could maybe even try for some simple Japanese discussions, maybe.


#28

Sure, and if nothing else, we’ll just get more used to the interface, and maybe someday feel comfortable jumping into one of the other groups, too.


#29

Oh, just saw this. I’ve been using this site for a while, actually. Here’s my profile for anyone interested: https://bookmeter.com/users/878679

I’d join that.

I learned about 積読 a while ago (in an English article), and maintain a shelf by that name in my Goodreads account. :grin:


#31

I don’t know if I’ll be able to edit the group description later on, so does anybody spot any glaring errors here?

ワニカニのウェブサイトで日本語を学ぶ人の会
コメントは日本語でも英語でもいいよ!

A group for Japanese learners using the Wanikani website
Feel free to post in Japanese or English!


#32

Looks good to my beginner’s eye. I’m almost sure you should be able to edit it later if needed… or, if all else fails, we can make a new one?

Impressive book count. :open_mouth:


#33

I can’t judge how much this is natural or not, but there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with it :+1:


#34

Here’s our group!

@Belerith, you’re right, now that it’s made I do see a way to edit the description :slight_smile:


#35

I am unreasonably excited that I can now love books in a whole other language :blush: like I didn’t have enough to read already

Thank you so much for setting this up!

@Ncastaneda do you think it would be worth including @Asterlea’s list of terms in the OP, and the link to the group that Saruko created as well?

Edit: aaaaah, I love the group picture :grin:

Now gotta see if I can install the app.


#37

Thanks! Though I can’t take too much credit for that - it was basically the only one to come up in Google that wasn’t an actual tofugu crabigator :sweat_smile:


#38

As long as you have a Japanese play store account, it should pose no problem.

Just realized I haven’t shared my profile here:
