ใ“ใฎๆœฌใ‚’็›—ใ‚€่€…ใฏ (16 - 17%)

Very tiny reads these past two days because I needed a little break from reading. Spent that time playing Octopath instead (itโ€™s such a damn vibe). But anywaysโ€ฆ

I made it to the end of the challenge! :partying_face: :cat2:

Challenge achievements: Iโ€™ve completed my very first Japanese book, and then another (if I can count 1Q84 Book 1 ๅ‰็ทจ as a book). Although I feel like I couldโ€™ve definitely done more (too many lazy days with small bits of reading), I am incredibly happy with my progress :3 I mean, this is two Japanese books more than Iโ€™ve ever read. Finding it a little hard to believe. Third time really was the charm :smile:

Wall of Shame: I planned to read Russian every day, too. But I justโ€ฆ Forgot :person_facepalming: I wonder if I can still read Cyrillic after all these weeksโ€ฆ Oh boiโ€ฆ

I am planning to continue in March, as I fear I may just forget to read altogether if I donโ€™t continue every day :sweat_smile: Iโ€™m excited to continue this journey with those who are sticking around, and looking forward to seeing everyone else in another challenge :3

February 28th!

Today I read Chapter 10 of God Bless the Mistaken, and finished Volume 2.
It was nice to finish off the challenge with another finished volume. :slight_smile:

How is it the last day of the challenge already!? Itโ€™s gone by so quickly!
Iโ€™ve finished 8 volumes of manga so far this year, which feels like a good number.
So far this year Iโ€™ve learned that there IS a limit to how many bookclubs I can juggle at onceโ€ฆ :sweat_smile: But also that I can stubbornly push forward when faced with a mountain of reading to do, even when some of it feels very difficult!

Its been a great start to the year, and I hope everyone else has had as much fun as I have. Thanks, as always, to @windupbird for hosting, and to everyone for sharing your updates, itโ€™s really motivating, and my to-read list is forever expanding from your recommendations!

Iโ€™ll be continuing to post throughout March, but for those who arenโ€™t, I look forward to seeing you again for the Spring Challenge. :slight_smile:

I only read one complete volume of manga [ไผš้•ทใฏใƒกใ‚คใƒ‰ๆง˜๏ผ๏ผ‘] in this reading challenge. I ended up selecting a manga [ใƒคใƒณใ‚ญใƒผๅ›ใจใƒกใ‚ฌใƒใกใ‚ƒใ‚“ ๏ผ‘] that turned out to be too hard for me to read so I havenโ€™t yet finished the replacement option [FAIRY TAIL 1]. This year, I seemed to have picked mostly wordy manga so far. Itโ€™s been quite a challenge but Iโ€™ve managed to push through most of it. Iโ€™ve been reading much more slowly as a result which is why Iโ€™m only on the brink of finishing my second volume for the year. I skipped three days as well, one to attend my sisterโ€™s birthday party and two separate days because I didnโ€™t want to stop reading the English book I was reading at the time.

Limping across the finish line here HAHA QUITE LITERALLY BECAUSE I STUBBED MY TOE ON A CART TODAY AND TOTALLY BROKE MY TOE NAIL/MADE MYSELF BLEED SOMEHOW, but I did manage to slightly pull it together and read something for the last few days of the challenge :joy: I feel bad I kind of went MIA for this second half :upside_down_face: Overall, I read 44/59 days, which isnโ€™t terrible for this time of year but also not the best lol. I finished 3 manga volumes and read ~140 pages of Penguin Highway (which is a little less than half the book - honestly not bad considering I only started it about a month ago and my reading days have been less than consistent in this second half of the challenge). Looking back at what all I read made me miss my sweet magic man Rei :sob: I want another volume of that to come out :upside_down_face:

Anyway, thatโ€™s a wrap on the Winter Challenge! :tada: Congratulations to everyone whoโ€™s made it this far - whether you read a little or a lot, I hope you got something out of the challenge and enjoyed your time in the thread :3 As usual, Iโ€™ll be taking a break in March (I think I might try to focus on English reading, actually :eyes:), but Iโ€™ll still be around lurking and liking posts from those of you who are continuing on! As usual, everyone can feel free to post in this thread until the next challenge starts on April 1st - hope to see you guys again in the spring :grin:

I did the week one reading for ใƒฌใƒ™ใƒซ๏ผ— and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Very mysterious set up - looking forward to how it plays out! Itโ€™s a faster read than I was expecting, partially because itโ€™s paperback (so any words to look up takes a smidge more time) and partially because my last ๅฎฎ้ƒจใฟใ‚†ใ book had a decent number of lookups, but itโ€™s been smooth!

Thereโ€™s something so satisfying about a physical book, and an older copy especially :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Aged paper just smells good.

Edit: Oh and happy end of challenge! Iโ€™ll probably stick around with any stragglers who just like posting about their reading every day :sweat_smile:

  • through the end of vol 3 of ใ‚ขใ‚ฟใƒƒใ‚ฏ!! This series began in 2007, and volleyball terminology must have changed between then and 2012 when HQ and 2.43 began, because there are some terms they use in addition to or instead of the ones Iโ€™m used to. Theyโ€™ll still say โ€œreceive,โ€ but theyโ€™ll also call them โ€œcuts.โ€ I have yet to see ใƒฏใƒณใ‚ฟใƒƒใƒ abbreviated as ใƒฏใƒณใƒ. Middle blockers are called centers, and (wing) spikers are called (side) attackers. In this, they say that the opposite hitter (right wing spiker) is the pillar of the team and is known as the super ace, whereas usually itโ€™s one of the two left wing spikers whoโ€™s the ace and the pillar of the teamโ€”and a super ace is just, well, an ace whoโ€™s a cut above the rest. A genius ace, if you will. I have two more volleyball series; I wonder where theyโ€™ll fall, terminology-wise.
  • 22 pages of ใ“ใฎๆœฌใ‚’็›—ใ‚€่€…ใฏ, leaving off on pg 88. Finished ch 1 and started ch 2!

Some vocab of note:

Welp! We did it! Another challenge in the books! Congrats, everyone! Whether you managed to read every day or not, I hope you feel like you got some good practice in! Iโ€™ve loved reading everyoneโ€™s updates, and it really really is true that having a group of people working on the same sorts of goals can be motivating; It definitely was for me this challenge. More than a few days where I dragged myself out of bed to go read my chapter of ไธ‰ใƒ„ๆ˜Ÿใ‚ซใƒฉใƒผใ‚บ, do some anki, and post a quick update. :sweat_smile:

Missed no days, and ended up reading 12 volumes of manga (and change), 3 childrenโ€™s books, 1 short story, and 1 short visual novel.

Read:

  • ๅคœใ‚ซใƒ•ใ‚ง pg 145 โ†’ 169 DONE! - oh man it feels good to finish this finally, it feels like Iโ€™ve been nibbling on it forever. Wanted to end off the challenge proper with a bang though
  • ไธ‰ใƒ„ๆ˜Ÿใ‚ซใƒฉใƒผใ‚บ ch 25

Word of the Day:
ๅ‘ผใณๆจใฆใซใ™ใ‚‹ ใ€Œใ‚ˆใณใ™ใฆใซใ™ใ‚‹ใ€ใƒผ to address (someone) without using a suffix such as โ€œ-sanโ€ or โ€œ-chanโ€; to refer to (someone) without a title suffix

February Goals

:white_check_mark: Finish ๅคœใ‚ซใƒ•ใ‚ง vol 1
:white_check_mark: Finish ใƒ›ใƒชใƒŸใƒค and pick a new easy manga before the ABBC and BBC
:negative_squared_cross_mark: Pass the ๏ผ™็ดš full mock test in the kanken game
:negative_squared_cross_mark: Finish parts 1 and 2 of ๆ–ฐๅฎŒๅ…จใƒžใ‚นใ‚ฟใƒผ N3 reading book

I did, finally, at long last, finish ใƒ›ใƒชใƒŸใƒค. Originally a stretch goal to try to finish in December, I managed to stretch it out until February :laughing: It took a little bit of extra work on the last day, but I also managed to finish ๅคœใ‚ซใƒ•ใ‚ง volume 1! For manga this month I read about 5 volumes in total, as well as joined the ABBC and BBC book clubs and start with those readings.

image
I didnโ€™t end up deciding to work too much on the 9็ดš test, because I was still struggling with some stuff on 10็ดš, but I did manage to do some writing practice every day, and passed the full 40 minute 10็ดš test last week! Definitely getting easier to work with. Current in game time is about 8 hours + a few extra hours of writing practice outside the game. Level 10 might โ€œonlyโ€ be 80 kanji, but at the end of the day thatโ€™s still going from not knowing how to write any kana to being able to comfortably do hiragana, katakana (less comfortably), and those 80 kanji, so Iโ€™m still pretty happy with my progress here.

Then for the ๆ–ฐๅฎŒๅ…จใƒžใ‚นใ‚ฟใƒผ seriesโ€ฆ I basically dropped the ball on this one. I did about 5 days worth of lessons, which isnโ€™t nothing! But itโ€™s definitely not as much as Iโ€™d hoped to get done.

Overall Challenge Goals

Now, when I wrote my goals in my original post, I was envisioning the end of March as a time frame, since I was planning to not take that month off (like I did with december in the winter challenge), so hereโ€™s progress towards those:

  • Finish every volume of manga I currently physically own in 2023 - I have read 12 volumes of manga this year, which still puts me ahead of pace for completing this by the end of the year!
  • I want to transition into reading more stuff which is pure text. - This one is an unqualified success already. Read 2 magic treehouse books, 1 japanese original childrens book, a short visual novel, and also a short story!
  • finish working through the ๆ–ฐๅฎŒๅ…จใƒžใ‚นใ‚ฟใƒผ่ชญ่งฃN3 - again, I have sort of dropped the ball on this one, but thereโ€™s still time for march! I donโ€™t know about finishing the whole book by then, but I could certainly make a sizeable dent in it.

March Goals:
I think both trying to read ๅคœใ‚ซใƒ•ใ‚ง and work on ๆ–ฐๅฎŒๅ…จใƒžใ‚นใ‚ฟใƒผ ended up being a little too much for me this month, so I think Iโ€™m going to take march off from trying to read a book book and just focus on those.

  • Do some ๆ–ฐๅฎŒๅ…จใƒžใ‚นใ‚ฟใƒผ N3 reading every day - Not going to set a hard goal on this because some sections are wildly different difficulty depending on how familiar I am with the concepts already
  • Pass ๏ผ™็ดš kanken test
  • Keep up the manga streak - I was hoping to do 3ๆœˆใฎใƒชใ‚ชใƒณ in ๏ผ“ๆœˆ, but I think that might be a bit much to bite off for me right now, so Iโ€™ll keep going with the book clubs and with ไธ‰ใƒ„ๆ˜Ÿใ‚ซใƒฉใƒผใ‚บ. I think Iโ€™d like to finish that series in March, though, so I can actually do ๅ››ๆœˆใฏๅ›ใฎๅ˜˜ in ๅ››ๆœˆ :laughing:

Iโ€™ll still be hanging around through march again, but for everyone whoโ€™s taking a break I hope to see you all again in April! :tada:

My deadlines are approaching at work and I think Iโ€™m on time. Hopefully that means Iโ€™ll have more time for reading soon.

ไธๅฏ่งฃ(ใตใ‹ใ‹ใ„) did get a bit better, so Iโ€™m even more hopefully now with encouragement from the folks who have already read it. I also like that it doesnโ€™t have furigana. It feels like a more real test of my reading skills.

A pretty neutral day for the technical end of the challenge; I played some more Steins;Gate and made it through the wall of science terminology I was in the middle of :joy: some things are very consistent across spike chunsoft games haha. Back to the Future appeared yet again today, though not by name this time :laughing:

Anyway Iโ€™ll be sticking around for the next month like usual, so no big wrap-up post for now. I might do some reflection in the next couple of days if the mood strikes, but otherwise Iโ€™ll see you guys in March and/or the next challenge! :grin:

I really wanted to finish the chapter yesterday, and have the day free for ๅŠ่ฝใก today, but sleep is important too.

February Recap

This month didnโ€™t go as well as I hoped, but it did have its highlights. I finished 3 books, and made good progress in two others. I missed two days of reading, but I had a day when I read 72 pages, and another when I read 124, both a record for me. I read a total of 805 pages this month, which seems little next to Januaryโ€™s 1110, but still not bad at all.

Read 2 chapters of ใ‚ชใƒฌใƒณใ‚ธ for the club.


The challenge is over!! This time I happily didnโ€™t miss any days, irl stuff not being crazy really helps in that department.
During this challenge I read ใƒฆใƒผใ‚ธใƒ‹ใ‚ข, which was a decently big book for me, I finished the ้’ใฎใƒ•ใƒฉใƒƒใ‚ฐ manga series and followed the ใ‚ชใƒฌใƒณใ‚ธ club, started but dropped ใ“ใฎๆœฌใ‚’็›—ใ‚€่€…ใฏ and Iโ€™ve been following along the BU$TAFELLOWS club which has been lots of fun. Mi goals for the near future are to keep up with the clubs Iโ€™m in (B$, Orange, IBC) and go back to reading ใ‚ใŸใ—ใฎๅนธใ›ใช็ตๅฉš which I stopped reading because of life getting a bit crazy.

Right now I have the energy to keep reading every day but I know from experience itโ€™s better for me to take this month a bit less strictly even if in practice I read basically every day, so I can come back stronger in the next challenge. Iโ€™ll still be reading everyoneโ€™s updates in March since I love the motivation!

Good challenge everyone!

Wow the Winter challenge is over, what a ride!

Iโ€™m glad to report that I read a total of 16 manga volumes. 2 per week. Didnโ€™t miss a single day and created a nice reading habit.

Looking forward to a Spring version if anyone else is up to. In any case Iโ€™ll just keep tracking my reading habit on Learn Natively and my personal Study log here in the forums, in form of Read Everyday Challenge - Spring Edition.

  • ็ˆช็ ”(ใคใ‚ใจ)ใŽ = claw sharping; scratching nails on a post

  • ๆฐธไน…(ใจใ“ใ—ใˆ) = eternity. Has Furigana, indicating the reading (besides ใˆใ„ใใ‚…ใ† and ใจใ‚). Also, dedicated JJ dictionary entry. I might have seen both readings somewhere before, ใจใ“ใจใ‚“ and ใ„ใซใ—ใˆ perhaps.
  • ็›ฎๆ˜Ÿ(ใ‚ใผใ—) = objective; goal. Also on a map in context. In contrast, ๅ›ณๆ˜Ÿ(ใšใผใ—) would also be right on the mark.

  • ็ฏ ็ช(ใ—ใฎใค)ใ้›จ(ใ‚ใ‚) = a torrential rain. Rain that can pass through a sheet of ็ฏ (ใ—ใฎ) (= bamboo grass). Other readings of the first Kanji include ใ•ใ•, both seen in names.
  • ๅƒ้ณฅ่ถณ(ใกใฉใ‚Šใ‚ใ—) = drunken staggering gait. First two Kanji is ๅƒ้ณฅ(ใกใฉใ‚Š) = plover, a kind of bird.
  • ไธ‡ๅš(ใฐใ‚“ใฑใ) = international exposition; world fair = ไธ‡ๅ›ฝๅš่ฆงไผš(ใฐใ‚“ใ“ใใฏใใ‚‰ใ‚“ใ‹ใ„)

  • ่ƒธ(ใ‚€ใญ)ใ‚’ๆ‰“(ใ†)ใค = to be touching; to be moved emotionally

Winter Challenge Wrap-up

  • 1.7 manga series completed [1]
  • 1 book with audiobook, read thoroughly [2]
  • VN almost ended of 1 series, perhaps. [3]

To me, I made it to the Challenge everyday to make sure I make a progress in collecting vocabularies and reading sentences carefully (where I canโ€™t yet do well with listening). Also, I need a place to write down vocabularies. Keeping vocabularies as original as much as appropriate, but meanings and interpretations are of my own.

Habit making first, I may say. I donโ€™t really dump difficulty to this one, because not really my focus, so not a place to put too excessive energy. But I learnt a lot of vocabularies, remembering many of them too.

I thank you @windupbird for hosting this Every Day challenge as always. (1 ยฝ years already?) Also, @Redglare for starting the first.

Well, first month went okayish until it didnโ€™t but second month was not really good but overall still better than usual. But itโ€™s always like that for me haha. Though I think it definitely helped me read more. Iโ€™ll try to continue pushing myself more.

I did finish Spirit Circle but still not Yoichi lol but Iโ€™m close.
