Ebook offset seems to be -2. So ebook page 3 is physical 5.
No end panel this week, end of chapter is the end. ^^
Please read the guidelines on the first page before adding any words.
Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.
Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.
Instructions for Spoiler Tags
Click the cog above the text box and use either the “Hide Details” or “Blur Spoiler” options. The text which says “This text will be hidden” should be replaced with what you are wishing to write. In the case of “Hide Details”, the section in the brackets that is labelled “Summary” can be replaced with whatever you like also (i.e, [details=”Chapter 1, Pg. 1”]).
Hide Details results in the dropdown box like below:
This is an example of the “Hide Details” option.
The “Blur Spoiler” option will simply blur the text it surrounds.
This is an example of the “Blur Spoiler” option.
Obs! Do note that the physical version seems to come with zero page numbers (yes, zero, I saw none while flipping through a good portion of the first volume). So alternative means of identifying page might be needed.
When asking for help, please mention the page number (if you can), and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.
Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

I’m reading along
I have finished this part
I’m still reading the book but I haven’t reached this part yet
I’m having a bit of trouble with this section. For starters, I skipped the long handwritten boxes. I think I’ll come back to them another day, later in my learning journey. However I also don’t really get the plot.
Why was the host club’s solution to the fiances’ problem to have the guy be seen with Haruhi? I don’t get the logic of that and then they just make up or rather the girl acknowledges the guy when the lights come on??? Is it just that they’re trying to make her stop running from him? by abusing social etiquette?
The club members know that they love each other. The guy is timid, sees himself unworthy of her and the girl refuses to accept that she loves him and they are perfect for each other. So, the club sets the scene with Haruhi, the girl sees these two together and gets jealous, runs, and our timid guy finally makes a move(affected by the conversation with Haruhi) and follows her. These actions prove that they care about and love each other.
First bubble: not sure mainly about the meaning of かけひき… so I feel like I just have no idea of what Haruhi is trying to say.
Second bubble: 気をひく, is it also an expression? not sure what this means. I am guessing the さすらって in the end refers to her wandering around the host club (to try and get her fiancés attention?)
this and 豚に真珠 came up for me when i searched on jisho, even without the kanji checking the ‘other forms’ section at the bottom of entries can be very helpful, same for ‘show collocations’. jisho sometimes doesn’t know what to do with longer strings of words, or frustratingly demands the exact wording to even bring up certain entries, but it can be more forgiving than you think! always worth putting in what looks like a phrase and seeing what happens! ichi.moe or something like yomichan are more reliable for that tho
That really made me laugh I wouldn’t worry much about messing up the number colours @MaraVos, I completely messed them up for one of the parts too at least I know I’m not alone now hahahaha (sometimes I just pray I’m using the correct numbering for the ebook pages too)
