📚📚 Read every day challenge - Spring 2022 🌸 🌱

Sounds like a challenge for me.
I’ve been reading at the snail’s pace of one (1!) page a day Higashino Keigo’s 探偵ガリレオ as well as trying to translate it to make sure I actually think about what I’ve read. So far, so good - I think.

In other words, I will use this challenge to :snail: on

Thank you! My german is good enough that I should be able to keep it up by immersing but it’s mostly vocabulary that’s slipped away over the last few years so it’s a bit tiresome looking up so many words. Maybe I should try reading on a kindle instead so I can look up words more easily. There are also definitely too few hours in the day and work takes up a disproportionate amount of them! I keep making myself promises of when my Japanese gets to this level or that level then I’ll pick up german again but my japanese aways still feels like a fragile baby bird that won’t survive if I don’t devote so much time to it.

These threads always look so fun so I’m excited to join in! I’m really bad at building habits so my goal is to try and build a consistent reading habit that will hopefully help me still find some time to read when I get more busy around the end of May. I’ll mostly read manga and visual novels but I’m trying to start reading some books as well.

It’s back! I was looking forward to this, it’ll be my third challenge, and every time it has helped me with motivation to read. Part of that is the challenge itself, but the best part for me is reading other people’s updates and seeing everyone’s progress.

My goals for this round are:
-Read a whole lot of バリアブルバリケード, hopefully finish the common route and a couple of individual routes
-Keep up with the かがみの孤城 bookclub
-Keep up with the 夜カフェ bookclub
-Finish the オレンジ manga series (3 volumes left)
-Maybe: Keep up with the 佐賀のがばいばあちゃん bookclub
It might be a lot for the amount of free time I usually have but I have a break coming up so that should make it a little easier…hopefully.

In previous challenges I’ve updated my home thread almost daily but haven’t posted much, this time I might try to do at least weekly progress posts. Let’s do this!

I’ve only been in the community for a couple of weeks so I hope I’m doing this right!

Discovering the book clubs here started my entire reading journey. Reading has never really been a hobby of mine but somehow I’m extra motivated when it’s reading in Japanese (it’s probably the learning and challenge that comes with it). This challenge will be such a fun way to track my progress along with everyone else!

I have a couple of Aoitori Bunko books and the collection of HoneyWorks light novels. I’d likely be reading Aoitori Bunko books for the most part as the HoneyWorks light novels are still too difficult for me atm.

I’m so excited to see everyone else’s updates!

Claiming a home post here! These calendars are super neat; being able to just click on a day to fill it is wild.

As for what I’ll be focusing on during the challenge… I’m currently reading 薬屋のひとりごと with the Advanced Book Club, so that’ll almost certainly fill up my weekends. I think I’d like to really focus on my stacks of manga I have lying around as well, finally get through a few of those series.

I normally go back a page or two to refresh my memory, but if I do that and its confusing I’ll jump back a chapter or two.

Last time I tried this, I was very bad about posting my own updates although I read almost if not everyday. So I’ll probably only check off the days most of the time.

Goals

The spirit of multilingual reading going on here has me inspired to make this challenge about my non Japanese reading instead!

I’m currently making my way through Le Petit Nicolas, so it’ll probably be mostly about that. I’m about half way through right now. I’ve been taking it very slow and not reading more days than I do, so maybe this thread can change that. :muscle:

Should I actually manage to finish this book in these 2 months I guess I’ll challenge l’étranger, which is sitting on my bookshelf as well. :crazy_face:

I also have a Spanish graded reader, but I haven’t felt motivated to work on my Spanish at all this year, so I probably won’t touch that one.

I think I’ll update a list of books I’d like to read this challenge throughout today (thereby ensuring I never get to them, of course). Probably my biggest hurdle will be dragging myself away from binging on translated webnovels; if I can successfully redirect my focus to reading Japanese ones, that’ll be a victory. (Most of the ones I’ve been reading have been Chinese, so no luck switching over there…)

How do you get the inverted checkbox to show?

11 Likes

I might also try and use the challenge to build consistency with my other languages! I have a graded reader I’m using to practice my Mandarin, some French webtoons I’ve reading, and a few novels in Spanish that I’m less than 20 pages into, so I’ll probably try and pick up one of those as well. After the Winter Challenge my Japanese reading is (mostly) consistent, but everything else is a bit so-so, haha.

Hi all, first time daily reading challenger! :wave: I’m hoping to get better at reading quickly so I appreciate the structure this challenge provides.

Keep reading through Haikyuu. We just finished Volume 7 in the book club, and going to start Volume 8 in a couple weeks.

Starting Goal
I’d like to read through all the free books on tadoku.org by the end of the challenge.

I’m not going to pretend that I’ll keep up with a home post or update every day, but I’ll be challenging along with everyone in spirit and maybe even in comments sometimes! My reading list is a little nuts right now…

  1. 夜カフェ with BBC will probably be mostly a weekend thing
  2. 霧のむこうのふしぎな町 … I’m already more than halfway through, so I want to keep reading just a little bit on days that I don’t read 夜カフェ (which feels a lot easier)
  3. よつばと! (vol 8) but only on days that I feel in the mood
  4. それでも歩は寄せてくる … this one is really exciting because it’s the first thing I can read that actually feels like a leisure activity! So I really want to read more, but I have to wait for the next two volumes to arrive and they haven’t even shipped yet! :sob:

Then after that, like @Magillou I have a bunch of books already that I’d like to work on, in order to make more space on my “unread” shelf, which is currently full. :joy: (So that I can buy more books.)

replies

What is this minimersion of which you speak? :thinking: I want to read this book (someday), too!

Ooh, yes pls.

@fustian_garb I’ve been putting off brushing up on my Spanish conversation skills for the exact same reason! But now it seems like I’m going to need it for summer vacation this year, and it would make me so happy to be able to converse with people (at least a little) in Spanish … At least I will be practicing different skillsets for each language, I guess.

I also have made a resolution to start reading some articles from the Dutch newsletter Onze Taal whenever it reaches my inbox, in an attempt to slow the rusting process a little. It only takes a few minutes a week, and makes me feel a lot more at ease that I won’t lose the language I worked so hard for in my twenties, and which holds memories of some of my favorite people in the world …

Oh no …

I dabbled the first time this challenge happened last summer. For at least a month, I read every other day. And now I’m back, hoping for at least that much. :joy:

I set a very modest yearly goal for my Japanese reading, basically a volume/book a month and I’m already 3 behind… Oops? Well, I was starting from nothing, so no surprise.

And seeing everyone else work on extra languages is awesome. I’m not doing that, but my normal reading habit has been dead for a while now. Escaping into fiction have been a hard sell for the past couple of years. But I’m mostly past that now.

So I might make this challenge also be about my regular reading, or getting back to regular reading, which will be in English, which is my second language but I’ve been fluent for over a decade so not a study language for me anymore. (I honestly haven’t read regularly in my native language (Swedish) since I stopped going to school.) But I’m not sure I want something that formal for it. Hopefully I can just start picking it up. :crossed_fingers:

= read Japanese
= also read in English/regular reading

June reading

For June, I’ve decided to track three different reading things, so I’m not gonna be super strict with myself about reading each one every day, but I want a lot of those boxes ticked for all three.

JP = Japanese reading so what this challenge have been about

EN = English fiction, aka something I managed to do for the first fourth of the challenge

NF = Non-fiction, I have some work related blog posts, newsletters, etc. that I need to read as well as many non-fiction books, so this is gonna be about reading a bit of this every day

This will be my first challenge joined! I have been trying to read every day before this, though there were often times where I wouldn’t read anything for a day or two in a row, so I’m hoping for a full 61-day streak with this! Edit: Make that 91, as I’m extending this through June, until the next challenge starts.

I’m aiming to read at least one chapter of manga per day and to keep up with the 夜カフェ book club, as well as the SPYxFAMILY book club once it’s started. My original main, concrete goal was to finish 2.43 清陰高校男子バレー部 代表決定戦編① (which may currently be above my reading level but I’m obsessed with this series and it’s currently my main motivator for learning Japanese. I can also understand at least the gist of most of it, which is exciting!) by the end of May; however, it became clear relatively early on that that was not going to happen. Now, as long as I at least read something every day, I’m happy.

I had this same experience. I still can’t really motivate myself to read a book in English. It’s awkward because I’m a bookseller. I’ve had to tell a few customers “I haven’t been reading a lot of new fiction lately …” But we did just get the English translation of Yotubato! in, so at least I can recommend that with a clear conscience! :sweat_smile:
