nice! A new challenge! This way I can forget that I totally failed at updating for the last one :see_no_evil:

I have got pretty into using the Bookly app for tracking my reading recently, cos it gives me lots of automatic fun stats. So I won’t do a calendar but I might stop by at least once a week and share how I’ve got on. My main focus right now (other than reading things that are fun) has been upping my reading speed. But it’s hard to see progress cos I love to read things at wildly different difficulty levels :sweat_smile: Still, I will be making some efforts at fitting in more comfortable difficulty extensive reading style things.

Normally these challenges were just somewhere to hang out while I read every day regardless, but at the moment I’ve fallen off a bit and probably need some actual goal to stick to so I’m going to join as proper accountability, like a real challenge now. Just have to drag myself away from Splatoon 3 and horror movies long enough to do it :melting_face:

Given the way progress has halted, I haven’t moved beyond what I was reading very much. I’m further but still in the midst of the first Flowers VN, and still going through Loopers with my club. I’m also 30% through 殺人出産, so I’ll be pulling from all of that. Think I’m just going to go for daily posts and not bother with the home post stuff. Too lazy right now :person_shrugging:

:maple_leaf: polv’s Reading challenge of Fall 2022 (Q4) Home Post

:books::balance_scale: Bookmeter

Real progress and thoughts, as a sum of listening, reading, and other skills, would be in my personal Q4 home post :fallen_leaf:.

Nonetheless, daily calendar will be made here to link to my reading progress (max 1 per day).

I will try to progress at least every week, but the real goal posting here is to continue reading others’ progress, variety knowledge, and tips. I fear that I may skip reading too many (of others’ post) if I don’t visit and there are already too many replies (and I am not so good enough myself). May I try to read lots and better or not, is to be decided later (not a current priority).

Approach for this challenge

I’m going to try to do the Listen Every Day Challenge again as well, so my aim will be to do something every day, with a roughly even mix of reading days and listening days. I will be honest, I might be on the struggle bus this entire challenge because work is so busy. I’ll also be going away for a couple weeks throughout the challenge period and I don’t plan to keep up with Japanese during that time. As for materials - no plans, I will be going with the flow for this one :joy:

Yay, the reading challenge is here yet again! Always love participating and seeing what everyone’s got their eyeballs in. :eyes:

Per the title, I want to try having a reading theme for October (probably not for November, but you never know). The theme, naturally, is “Halloween.” Basically, I want to focus on reading things that are ハロウィンっぽい. They don’t have to be dark, per se––just things that have a spooky vibe or elements that evoke Halloween, like witches. The two things I’m currently thinking of are とつくにの少女1 and 魔女の宅急便. However, I’m certainly open to suggestions! I don’t know how far I’ll get when it comes to finishing these for October, so it’s entirely possible the theme will end up continuing into November.

First time I participate in a challenge here I’m so excited :heart_eyes:
I’ll be reading from Satori reader.
My current goal is to read for at least 20 minutes a day, I know it’s not much but a good start.
Thanks @windupbird for the challenge.

Looking forward to participating for the first time!
I will be reading part two and three of この素晴らしい世界に爆焔を and maybe some manga in between.
My goal for now is to try and read every day, even if I only manage to go through a few pages.

First and foremost, thanks so much again for hosting the thread @windupbird <3 .

There’s always something I change in every challenge at this point I think, but bit by bit I’m discovering how I like to do things, what seems to be effective for me and how I want to go forward. Starting from this challenge I won’t be using an everyday layout anymore and I won’t be updating checkboxes in a calendar either, I’ve gotten rid of it altogether. This “off” month I’ve been experimenting with it and the only change I’ve seen is a positive one, with a lot less pressure to perform and no difference in productivity. I think I can do this now precisely because at this point after more than a year of daily challenges, the habit seems to be pretty ingrained and I always get back to it easily when I take a “break”, which is never really a complete break anyway. I’m not sure if this could have worked back then, but I’m grateful it does now. The only thing I will try to achieve is 10 new words in Anki everyday, which has been very easy so far because I almost always make enough cards in advance from what I play anyway. I’d be super happy if at the very minimum I can do that on the days that I don’t do anything else. It’s also not a limit in any way, just a consistent minimum, while still playing/reading for as long as I want. This way I’ll also mix a low amount of SRS with much more immersion, which is what I’ve been aiming for for a while already. I’m quite happy with this new plan.

I will still update virtually everyday even if no calendar, because as always the activity and interaction of this thread always pushes me forward and it’s fun :slight_smile: . Good luck to everyone! Here we go again.

I don’t know how well I’ll go in October as I’m on a dive trip with a group, though I suspect I’ll do ok (holidays are like that).

My main aims are going to be to keep up with my current book clubs (possibly 5 and counting) and increase my reading speed for the JLPT.

This month is where I started last year so this challenge is my anniversary challenge. I’m still reading manga but my reading pace has increased since last year (from barely 2 volumes in the first challenge to 4 in the last challenge). Slowly but surely, my goal of reading manga in its original language is coming to fruition. (Well, technically, I’ve already met that goal but the comprehension fluency isn’t there yet.) So far, it’s only been my kanji recognition that has improved tremendously but that’s the first step in comprehending Japanese, right?

Halloweeny book buddy! :smile: I’m excited to check out とつくにの少女 and (finally) tackle 魔女の宅急便.

It’s technically still September for me, but I’m in a good place to start so may as well kick off. It’s October already in other time zones, too!

I’m about to go on a trip, and I did not manage to finish 天使の傷跡 on time, so I’m bringing it along. I also need to read the final week of 十角館の殺人事件 which I may or may not do on the ride to my destination. Depends on how pretty the scenery is. :smiley:

I also started reading 三体 and I’m still in the first few pages. I knew this book would be hard for me, but I’m already pausing to absorb sentences. Maybe it will get smoother after the initial scene setting, but it’s also sci-fi so who knows. The writing style is delightful, though.
It’s my first book in Japanese that’s translated from something not English, so that’s fun, but also challenging. Since my partner is going to be reading the same book in simplified Chinese I expect some confusion as we try to discuss and figure out which characters we’re talking about. My book provides transliterated Chinese names as well as Japanese-ified names. For example:

史強(シー・チアン/し・きょう)
葉哲泰(イエ・ジョータイ/よう・てつたい)

Katakana is the transliteration, hiragana is the Japanese-ified. Given my way I’d just remember the Japanese-ified ones because reading 強 as きょう is a lot more intuitive to me than チアン, but since my partner will only know them by their actual Chinese names I unfortunately can’t do that :upside_down_face:

Reasonable start.

I read about 7 pages of Spy Family and nearly 3 pages of Tugumi (quite a heavy couple of pages).

5 book clubs to keep up with at the moment so I’ll have to pace myself!

I so wish I could do this! However, between work and my regular Japanese study, I know it would make me feel overwhelmed. I look forward to joining you again next summer when I will once again do a self-created intensive study program. In the meantime, I will keep plodding through よつばと whenever I can find the time… Good luck everyone!
