I’ve been reading 蜘蛛ですが、なにか？ every day. Read 8 pages today and over 20 pages yesterday. Pretty interesting. 60/329 pages (18% done).
I’ve been a bit lazy on one hand and wanted to eliminate distractions, so I sit down with the book and a pencil and read. When there’s a word I don’t know or some grammar that doesn’t make sense to me I highlight it. So far there hasn’t been a case that I couldn’t understanding something at all, only that I missed some nuance or a detail. Also I noticed that if I don’t look up something right away I sometimes look at the kanji/vocab and realise I actually know them, just can’t easily recall.
And then when I’m done reading for the day I go over the read pages and look up the stuff I was really curious about.
I think I sped up considerably and can do around 10-12 pages per hour. I will try to read around 10 pages everyday.
