📚📚 Read every day challenge - Summer 2022 🏖 ☀

Welcome to the “Read Japanese Every Single Day” Challenge, Summer 2022 Edition! :beach_umbrella: :sunny:

Summer time! :sunglasses: A perfect time to sit outside and enjoy the weather with a good book. …Or you could be like me and hermit yourself away in an air conditioned room because humidity is the worst and bugs are icky. :laughing: Either way, summer is a great time to start developing a reading habit! If you missed the previous Read Every Day challenges, feel free to jump in on this one! We would love to have more people join in on the fun and experience the magic of the challenge :sparkles:

A little history behind this challenge: last summer, @Redglare had the awesome idea of doing a “Read Every Day” challenge, where we challenged ourselves to read something in Japanese every day for 2 whole months - we liked this challenge so much that we decided to make it a recurring thing! :grin: With the start of this challenge, we will have officially been doing these challenges for one full year! Happy birthday, Read Every Day Challenge :birthday: :heart:

Every challenge thread has its own special flavor, but the one thing they always have in common is being positive, encouraging, and fun! Oh, and also cute manga. Those are pretty much always here, too. I’ve got some good ones this time :eyes:

Why is this challenge so special, or what makes it unique? Well, we think it’s a combination of the short/limited time frame, the habit-focused (versus output-focused) approach to the goal of “reading more,” and the general atmosphere of camaraderie and community spirit that’s been present in each challenge thread thus far ^^ I can say from personal experience that these challenges have helped me read way more than I would have otherwise, and many people (including myself) have noticed significant growth in reading speed and/or stamina while participating in the challenges.

Whether you are an expert reader already or a new reader just starting out, everyone is welcome to participate in this challenge! To quote @Redglare:

This is a thread for people who:

:bookmark: want to spend time reading a bunch this summer
:bookmark: want to improve their reading speed and comprehension
:bookmark: want to hold themselves accountable and have a place to document their progress
:bookmark: simply want to join in on the challenge of reading every day for two or so months :books: :books:

Time frame: July 1 - August 31

This is the “official” recommended time frame, but late starters are absolutely welcome! This thread will be up and running until the end of September, so you can start and finish your personal challenge at any point during that time, and shorten or lengthen the challenge to the time period that works best for you.

Your reading materials can be whatever you want, be it manga, light novels, books, visual novels, magazines, graded readers, satori reader, Japanese webpages/blogs, or Japanese games - you name it, anything goes as long as it is something in Japanese :jp: :durtle_the_explorer: “Reading” can be interpreted creatively, if that helps keep you motivated - for example, some people have counted reading Japanese subtitles as reading some days. In general, we are a pretty flexible and forgiving bunch :wink:


Threads worth checking out

I recommend checking out The News Reading Challenge thread if you’d like to read news articles every day, but you are of course welcome to post about it in this thread too if you’d like to.
The "news reading" challenge 🗞


If you don’t know where to find reading material I recommend checking out the Immersion/Reading section of the following thread:
The Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List!


There’s also quite a few book clubs here on the forum, some of them have vocab lists which can make for an easier reading experience. A list of book clubs can be found here:

Unless I gain miraculous Japanese comprehension in the next few days then I’ll still be reading No Longer Human by the time this challenge starts. I’ll continue with that for this challenge and then see what I feel like reading next when I get there.

Probably something light and cute to counter-balance the oppressing gloom of No Longer Human :rofl:

Random article link because it keeps disappearing from the Japanese Wiki homepage:
「おまかせ表示」


I am so ready to be overcome by cute.

And thank you for setting up the thread again and for keeping these threads going! :smile_cat:

What I'm planning to read

Probably a bit ambitious but I have some free time coming up in August so hopefully it’ll be fine. Basically I want to make big progress on the VN I’ve been playing very slowly for several months already, read an entire book at my own pace (haven’t done that in a while), keep un with the VN reading club and read a bunch of manga:

  • Play VN バリアブルバリケード : finish at least 3 routes
  • Read ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖
  • Follow along with VN reading club for ルーパーズ :infinity:
  • Finish 10 manga volumes

Thanks for organising again @windupbird! These challenges have been keeping me super motivated this year. :slight_smile:

:books: My bookmeter profile

Although not with absolute confidence, I am sure that it would be appropriate to post here a little earlier than July 1. My plan is going to be weekly-based, with planning on Monday and summary on Friday. Progressing in-between will be optional, but I might tick the checkbox for reading, nonetheless.

This place will also be the main place for recording general Japanese immersion / learning within this summer.

Personally, I feel no obligation to read everyday, but for listening, I will try to listen everyday :headphones: with a significant time duration (≧30 minutes).
