Both today and yesterday I’ve read another 5% in the Kindle version of NO. 6. No idea how many pages that is but it seems like I’ll get to the end of the first chapter tomorrow which makes me think that I must be doing a similar pace to when the IBC book club read it. I timed myself yesterday and it took me 1 hr 6 mins to read that 5%. Even though I’ve read manga for longer stretches than that when I’m really into a story, I’m finding that this is about my endurance limit for a day right now. Hoping that if I stick with reading prose then that will improve
Still early days, but I’m really enjoying NO. 6 so far. It made me laugh a bit because in one of the reviews I read before getting it someone complained that the romance comes out of nowhere, yet within minutes of meeting, one of the characters is comparing the others eyes to the twilight sky. Already seems pretty gay lol
It’s difficult coming straight from reading manga series where I can comfortably read a few chapters a day and so usually stop at a nice point, to have to force myself to stop midway through an interesting dialogue (as I did today) because I’ve run out of reading energy I’m also not 100% how I’m going to balance this + 2 chapters ハイキュー a week + continuing 鬼滅の刃…but I do want to read all of those things lol. The struggle of wanting to read all of the things always .
