๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š Read every day challenge - Spring 2023 ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ

I would encourage you to be more generous with yourself because 40 pages of a light novel every day to me sounds like an intermediate-advanced thing :joy::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: (seriously, Iโ€™m sure we all know a handful of people of our same nationality that is not able to read that much)

100% on this as well :handshake:

Thanks :see_no_evil: well I had a lot (a lot) of free time at the very beginning and from april to july I was on turbo mode. Then I started working full time but I found out that my love for this is strong enough that I can keep doing it despite life being busy.

The more I hear about how long can japanese sentence be and the more scared I am of it.

For me probably it would be more reasonable to test on longer periods of time since my reading speed can vary wildly, I may read 100 manga (shonen) pages in a day and the day later get stuck on something, begin asking questions here and looking it up on internet, and only do 20 pages on that day

Oh yeah this too, but I meant how long the columns of text are. It depends on font and page size, rather than speech bubble size. One of the novels Iโ€™m currently reading can fit 38 characters per line, where a lot of manga will for the most part not have much more than 10. Thatโ€™s a big difference. Larger blocks of text are a completely different experience than smaller ones, regardless of sentence length

:princess: Tileworld Chronicles - Markusโ€™ Ascent Chapter 3, p. 1 - 4
Markus and Celestina explore the cave. Good thing they have a map because immediately they stand before three different tunnels to chose from.
Celestina muses whether the legend of (rune?) stones growing like mushrooms is true. Their travel is interrupted by the ground beneath Markusโ€™ feet giving out. He drops down into the darkness and Celestina is unable to hear anything from him. Maybe that messaging armbandโ€ฆ

Lucky me I read on the Apple Book app!! It makes me customize everything of books and light novels that donโ€™t have particular graphics. Like font, size, even distance between kanji/kana and some more interesting options I cannot recall. Not that I havenโ€™t really tried these functions out, I just checked with ้›ชๅœ‹.

How do you read 38 character-rows? :mag::rofl: what screen you read on?

Oh, I donโ€™t read digitally. Paperโ€™s always been easier for me than digital, so Iโ€™ve got a completely physical library

I live in Italy and shipment from Japan is a bit tricky, nothing impossible tho. I got shipped volumes 1 to 6 of ใ‹ใ‚‰ใ‹ใ„ไธŠๆ‰‹ใฎ้ซ˜ๆœจใ•ใ‚“ which is the first thing I ever attempted to read (the famous 3 hours per speech bubble manga haha). I love reading paper and having only read digital stuff since January now I can say I really miss it! The 2 only problems with paper (for me): space. I moved recently and will probably move again soon, and moving with a lot of books would be a problem. And also that the damn mangas wonโ€™t stay open :joy: it may sound foolish but this is the thing I hated most in my entire month of paper manga reading: I like to relax and read possibly with no hands involved so I can use my phone to check unknown vocabs very quickly, and I can do this on an iPad fixed on a stand but cannot do it with the paper manga which requires physical attentionโ€ฆ if I get to the point where I can read a manga only checking 1-2 words every 10 I would definitely buy paper sometimes (minority of times).

I could read ไน่˜ญ(ใใ‚‰ใ‚“)'s rants all day.

Word of the Day: ่กŒ(ใŠใ“)ใชใ„ - deed; act; action. This word is actually super weird to me because usually the โ€˜nounโ€™ version of verbs will remove the okurigana (่ฉฑ(ใฏใชใ—), ๅธฏ(ใŠใณ), ็•ณ(ใŸใŸใฟ)) but this one actually has some even more okurigana than usualโ€ฆ (itโ€™s probably just derived from ่กŒ(ใŠใ“)ใชใ† which I know is sometimes used when you absolutely donโ€™t want to get it confused with ่กŒ(ใ„)ใ)

This could entirely just be the fact that almost all of my reading experience so far have been high school-era romance/SOL novels but the series definitely doesnโ€™t have any particular amount of slang that deviates from the norm enough to give me pause. Most of the characters speak in a fairly typical diction besides ็œŸๅ”ฏ(ใพใ„) who will occasionally use a few more literary phrases but nothing too tough. Also colloquialisms are definitely more easy to process in novels than manga IMO because of the abundance of context.

Another hour and a half or so of Paranormasight. It was easier until it wasnโ€™t โ€“ lighter on the files but one conversation was particularly difficult, one of the first instances of the actual script tripping me up with a lot of highly specific terms. Sometimes having to slow down for Japanese reading isnโ€™t a problem, but it does feel to me like the pacing is getting messed up in this one. A significant story change has led to having to establish a lot of new stuff and I donโ€™t feel like anything has โ€œhappenedโ€ for a few days of reading now. Oh well, on we go. One day Iโ€™ll speed up :skull: :crossed_fingers:

I donโ€™t remember if I mentioned this or not, but after reading some stuff about l1 reading research and some of the benefits of teaching orthography/phonetics (in english reading, mostly), I decided to give heisigโ€™s RTK another try. One of my goals in the last challenge was to work on my handwriting and study for the kanken test, so iโ€™ve also been kinda using this as an excuse to learn to write a lot of the characters I already know. Subjectively, I think itโ€™s helped me a bit with processing stuff with a lot of unknown or partially known words and guessing at what some compounds might mean (the ordering is different than WK, so iโ€™ve actually already seen quite a few kanji that are new to me), but idk how long Iโ€™ll be able to keep it up. Iโ€™m pretty bad with SRS in the long run :sweat_smile: To my knowledge thereโ€™s not a ton of actual research out there on effective L1 teaching methods for kanji/hanzi, and if there is, it would largely not be in english.

I technically read yesterday, but it was something like 3 pages of ใƒ‘ใƒ‘ๆดปๅฅณๅญ. Today I finished reading the weekly ๅ‘Š็™ฝ assignment and man that book is wild. Iโ€™m really enjoying it a lot.

Since Iโ€™m done with my weekly assignments Iโ€™ll be able to just read more ใƒ‘ใƒ‘ๆดปๅฅณๅญ the rest of the week. Also, in both the IBC and the ABC it doesnโ€™t look like my picks will win so Iโ€™ll continue cruising at 2 book clubs for the next month or so which is probably for the best as I have several trips coming up :sweat_smile:

Seasons said today is ่จ€่‘‰ (ใ“5ใจ10ใฐ8) day. I guess we ignore daiten and then because ใƒ and ๅ…ซ look similar maybe?

So I use a cover protector for the shonen sized manga when I read them and towards the end, the reach a point where it get uncomfortable to hold the book and also it feels like Iโ€™m bending the cover out of shape which bother me. So I thought I would try to read the rest of the volume. Unfortunately this volumeโ€™s on the longer side and I had to clock out for sleep. I bet Iโ€™ll finish tonight though. Side note though, does Jotaro use timestops to pass by the desk?? idk about all Japanese hotels, but like in Europe, many of them ask for the key while youโ€™re out. I feel like thatโ€™s something Jot would consider a social ้ขๅ€’่‡ญใ„

  • 10 pages of 2.43, leaving off on pg 29. lol Hataโ€™s early forties and Subaru compares him to a grandpa. At least it was just in his head. It was cute, though; Hata let Ochi do the team meeting on his own, and Subaru saw him sitting in the back watching Ochi like a grandfather being moved looking at his first grandkidโ€™s ๆ›ธใๅˆใ‚. Anyway I both love and hate that Fukuhou are written as protagonists in their own right. It makes you wanna root for them even though you know there can only be one winner and you know itโ€™s gonna be Seiin. Why isnโ€™t this a bigger prefecture that gets two representatives.
    I started getting ็ฒๅพ— down while playing DQXI since it shows up a fair bit, but afterward I completely forgot how to read it and then could never seem to remember it for long. After seeing it in Eternal Radiance the other day and now in 2.43 today, hopefully I have the reading down now.
  • some Eternal Radiance. Picked up my first party member! Thereโ€™s just one more. Turns out Celeste can only use her Heal ability on herself, so itโ€™s a good thing Valana can heal herself too, though thereโ€™s also potions. Itโ€™s also nice that when Valana dies, she revives with like 20% HP as soon as no enemies are nearby, because I donโ€™t think I have any revival items lmao (she has died, um, a lot so far. Whoops.)
Some vocab of note:
