:blossom: polv’s Reading Challenge of Q2 2023 Home Post

Perhaps I should consider either amount or difficulty as well, but not a priority for now. Maybe joining some upcoming book club; though I don’t like my pace being strictly paced by others or long schedules. I would still need to read to support my listening.

Thinking about it, calendar might not need a , only just date + icons (like :video_game: :restroom: :musical_score: :secret: :white_flower:), or replace the date with ・

Icons: :framed_picture: = manga, :closed_book: = non-manga, :white_flower: = grammar / textbook, :video_game: = video game

I might put only either manga / non-manga / game at once.

It’s been a while, but I’ve decided to join this challenge again! I’ve missed this thread :pleading_face:

My goal for the whole year is to read 24 books, with 10 of those not being manga. So to keep on track with that, my goal for the next three months is to finish two non-manga books and six books total.

No calendar for me (I already track in 2 places), but thanks again @windupbird for hosting!

I’ll kick off by saying I finished the remainder of last week’s assignment for レベル7 this morning, read a bit more of 花束は毒 (and stopped on quite the twist but…feelings on that below*), and am a few pages into the final assignment of この本を盗む者は. I probably will finish both those last two books in the next day or two, so looking forward to crossing those off!

*About the twist in 花束は毒. Major spoilers. Kind of a rant. Only read if you don’t care / don’t plan to read the book. Also I read crime stuff so if you’re sensitive to those topics just skip it:

So the tl;dr plot of the book is 先輩ー男 is idolized a bit by MC. He finds out that 先輩ー男 is getting vaguely threatening letters in the mail telling him to call it off with his fiance. MC contacts a 名探偵 private detective who is his 先輩ー女 and there’s totally no feelings developing there. Like they assure us of this so much like wink wink nudge nudge but honestly the two seem to have basically zero chemistry or compatibility so…yeah?
Anyways. The reason 先輩ー男 is getting letters is cause 4 years ago he was arrested on rape charges and ‘settled’. Said attack was a random victim assault in a park. He never met the girl who accused him, the evidence we’ve been presented is fairly weak, he’s said to not know who the girl is, she never met him before either, etc etc. The settlement was handled by the girl’s parents and his lawyer.
So most of the book thus far has been trying to track down who the victim was but because her name was redacted after the case settled they can’t get that, but the figure out the letter sender is the father of the victim and they find out his name.
So, 名探偵 private detective meets with him to be like, “hey, what’s up with you sending this guy these letters?” and he drops the name of his daughter. Which is the name of the woman that 先輩ー男 is engaged to. So…wow big どんでん返し, right?!
Except no. So much no.

  1. she picked this dude out of a line up, and presumably while her name was withheld from him, his wasn’t from her, right? Like a victim not being told the name of their attacker…?
  2. Dude is suuuuuuper cautious about interacting with anyone from his old town. Like legit almost rebuffs MC cause he was from old town, his name is mud there, people hate him, his reputation has been dragged. So how is he able to date this woman to the point of being engaged without knowing she used to live in that town?
  3. Ok I know this is maybe a Japanese cultural thing but it’s super weird to me that they’re engaged and all ready to have a 入籍パーティー but he hasn’t met her parents?

Anyways, I gotta read on to see if the plot can redeem itself after that.

The Winter Challenge was my first challenge here and I’m really happy I took part as it built a passion that was long dorment. Reading!
So let’s keep with the Spring one, because I’ve got a ever growing backlog of 30 Titles (novel and light novel) that I want to read.

I’m always having a lot of fun with this challenge. I have so many things I want to read but don’t get around to because of other obligations, so having a challenge to motivate me to sit down and crack open a book is great!

  • This time around I will be doing a lot of reading through the Tobira workbook as I am working though the textbook with the others in this thread.
  • When I have time to read something else, I want to continue reading DrDru’s Tileworld Chronicles.
  • I don’t think I will get to it but I can hope: Kiki’s Delivery Service is still waiting for me.

Challenge Plan

I have a yearly goal of completing 2 VNs, 2 novels, and 16 manga volumes. I’ve currently finished 4 manga volumes. I’m 50ish% into Loopers (I don’t care that 40% of that was read last year), and some % into BU$TAFELLOWS. Because these yearly goals are important to me, my “what I’ve finished” section includes everything I’ve finished this year, but clearly marks which challenge it belongs to.

I also have a goal to read 52 books in English, because I want to get back to regular reading in general. And to hit 52 books I need to read on average one book per week; meaning I probably need to be pretty consistent about reading, which is my ultimate goal!

I will be tracking my English reading too, although less detailed than my Japanese reading.

Lastly, I’ll also be reading through A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar together with the club I started. And I will be tracking that too. My goal is to read just a little grammar every day, at least when we get to the main entries mid-April.

This means a good reading day should have 3 emojis. One for Japanese reading, :white_flower: for grammar and :books: for English reading.

I don’t typically include call outs in my home post so let’s add some afterwards (how have I not thought of that before :woman_facepalming:).

Thank you, @windupbird, for keeping this going for another round. And thanks to @omk3 for the calendars. :joy:

Also to @NicoleIsEnough for the regular changes I do to the calendars since a couple of challenges ago. And lastly thanks to @meagstudies for the cool table version of “what I’m reading” that I decided to steal.


It felt nice to use some spring emotes, because it really isn’t spring where I live yet. And I feel like I could really use spring coming soon, but unless things changes we going to have another big dump of snow coming this week. :tired_face:

Yeah, I also wonder about grammar / textbook Everyday Challenge, seriously. Especially as DoBJG and Tobira clubs are coming up.

13 Likes

I don’t personally feel like I need a separate challenge for that, I’m just adding it to this one. Just like I also have a desire to read more in English (which is my regular reading even though it is in my second language) and just add that.

From my perspective, I hope we’ll have fairly lively grammar discussions in the club threads anyway.

Thanks again @windupbird for being the reading host! :raccoon:

I’ll be continuing from the previous thread and reading 新書太閤記 by 吉川英治, currently on Volume III.

I might board the train once more but as usual without a calendar :slight_smile: . Got a bit burnt out of posting in the middle of the previous one and completely disappeared at some point, needed a total break, but I think I can handle it again. Cus I miss u.

@windupbird thanks for hosting once again <3 .


I’ve been thinking for a while about doing something like this for myself but with Imabi, like an entry a day from the beginning (never hurts to check on the basics) to the end. Not sure how effective it would be but I’m entertaining the idea regardless :joy: .

Imabi yayy!

off-topic, but I do something similar

I use Bunpro and Imabi for grammar, so I try to read around one or two pieces every day (since I do 3 new grammar lessons on bunpro most days).

I would totally recommend it to anyone! It is time-comsuming, but because of Imabi, grammar actually makes sense to me these days lol
