:fallen_leaf: Starting Point :fallen_leaf:
ハリー・ポッターと賢者の石 (pg 358 of 461)

My focus will be No Zero Days, rather than a minimum page number. I aim to build a consistent habit of casually opening my book to enjoy a couple pages when I can, rather than only doing so when I am sure I can commit a solid block of undisturbed free time to reading 30 pages. On my sunny window seat in the morning before work, over lunch at my desk, and snuggled into bed at night with a hot cup of tea. I will make time when I have time, and I will get used to focusing even in distracting environments.

First day of the challenge I read some lines of the Monobeno visual novel. I’m more than half way through the first route. The story seems to start to pick up the pace. I wonder what happens next.

In addition to that I read four more pages of the Shin Kanzen Master Reading JLPT N1 book. I’m soon done with the book but I don’t seem to have improved that much. I still have a hard time picking the right answer. Maybe I need to read more to actually become better at it.

Read this week’s chapters of 極主夫道 and now I’m reading more 時のオカリナ. Just got to part where Link takes his seven year nap, so I’m about a third of the way through the book.

:newspaper_roll: NHK News Easy :newspaper_roll:
I decided to start off simple and read a short article. It looks like a research group at Kyoto University is trying to make a robot capable of laughing and having conversations. :eyes:
For the most part, I could understand what the article was about, and I only struggled with one word → 年寄り, but I was able to figure out the meaning when I hovered over the word for the definition. The definition had 老人 ( elderly person), which I already learned from WK. Great start to the month!

📘 Edelstein's Reading Log 📘


Hello! I joined in on the Winter 2022 reading challenge with Shirokuma Cafe, but quickly realized that manga was kicking my ass and I was way out of my depth. So, now after getting through Genki I and II along with progressing leaps and bounds in Japanese as a whole, I'm back! Good luck to everyone!

I’ll also be giving myself the option to listen to a podcast in lieu of reading, in case I can’t find the time for JP reading amongst my schoolwork. Haven’t decided if I’ll denote this differently yet, but I guess we’ll see.

With traveling over summer and school starting I kind of stopped posting halfway through the last challenge, but it was a lot of help in getting me to read everyday even if it’s just a little, so I’m excited to join in again. I probably can’t post daily but I think I’ll shoot for an update every week. My plan this time is to focus mostly on novels. I also want to get more into the Halloween mood by picking some books that kind of fit that theme to read in October.

Solid start, I read about 5000 characters of Loopers for my visual novel club! I’m appreciating the VN more as it veers back into pretty serious, heavy stuff now, but I’ll save most of that for the thread when this chapter is done. I’m still feeling things out as I ease back to doing this and see what it’s like currently using no SRS. My memory is slipping too much on a lot of kanji I hadn’t reinforced super hard yet, mostly just failing to remember readings, but I need to watch it a little longer term. Beyond feeling like I have more little slips, I’m not doing too badly getting back to reading.

  • Chainsaw Man (Chapter 11-12)

I forget how silly this manga is, especially early on. I’ve been rereading it in preparation for the anime coming out soon.

Day 1: October 1st
What did I read?: ゆるいキーウィ
How much did I read?: 12 pages
How long did it take me?: 20 min

not me almost forgetting the first day of my own challenge :sweat_smile:
I thought about it earlier today but then I got super absorbed in organizing some stuff and suddenly it was 9 o’clock and I was like…oh :joy: So I grabbed the closest thing, which was ゆるいキーウィ. This one is definitely a more “picture book” sort of manga, so not a lot of text. But look at the way he reads with his little feets :pleading_face:

Anyway, welcome to the challenge everyone! :sparkles: Looking forward to reading with you all :grin:

I read this short story on Tadoku called 羊飼いの男の子, or The Boy Who Cried Wolf. It’s one of Aesop’s fables. I remember reading this particular fable when I was a little kid, so it’s really interesting to see how the same story is written in Japanese.

I was surprised to see that I could recognize and read all of the kanji without needing to look at the furigana (and I’m only at level 12 on WK too!). This sort of progress when I’m still really early in my WaniKani journey makes me excited to even think about what I could read comfortably in the future.

This first day of the challenge is a work day for me, so I did not get to start off strong. Also my book order arrived today, 10 days early. I have not finished nearly as many books since I ordered them as I’d hoped lol have I even finished one? And I realized while putting the novels away that none of my BSD novels had made it onto my Bookmeter. My 積読 pile has actually been 7 more than I thought! So yeah, it’s actually in the 150s now…

In any case, I read よつばと! vol 11. Finally I’ve read all of them! And now I wanna read my よつばと! DJs, but I’m too tired.

In non-reading news, I finished watching Old Fashioned Cupcake! It’s really good. Nozue-san is adorable, even if he is almost 40. I’m looking forward to getting the manga at some point. I am a bit disappointed that Viki doesn’t have JP subs for it, because I feel like I’d be able to pretty much follow along without too much trouble with this one.

Woo back to it! School and the like has really been taking it out of me, so hopefully a new challenge can help me refresh my reading a bit :grin:

十角館の殺人, 83-90%

The end is in sight! There are already some very good hints of what has been truly going on, and it seems to be a good mix of things I suspected and things I didn’t. Hopefully I can finish the rest of the book today and join the discussion on Natively.

Have a great challenge, everyone, and once again, thanks to @windupbird for hosting!
