๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š Read every day challenge - Winter 2023 โ˜ƒโ„

Thanks!

Considering Iโ€™ve only read two light novels so far (since Yoru cafe seems to count), I donโ€™t see it happening anytime soon since it wonโ€™t with that series unfortunately. First book was so good too, but I canโ€™t recommend reading anymore than that one. :sweat_smile:

But Iโ€™m sure itโ€™ll happen eventually. ^^

My next achievement should be finishing my first VN. :smiley: In a couple of months. ^^

Thatโ€™s an unfortunate feat of series in general, I fear :cold_sweat:

March 4th!

Today I read Chapter 61 of Shadows House. Only one more chapter left in this volume :slight_smile:
This volume has felt very text dense to me compared to previous volumes, and Iโ€™ve been finding it a bit tough - but the story is really interesting!

I barely read last week and it showed in my class as my proficiency dropped significantly (plus I have been up since 2 am watching kdramas and my classes were 12 pm and 1 pm soo).

Suffice it to say that I plan to read 30 minutes per day this week even if I cannot understand the content.

Very tired today, so I didnโ€™t have the energy to read much.

  • 2 pages of 2.43, leaving off on pg 195. Did a tiny bit of translating, too. Today I came across ๆฟƒๅบฆ, recently learned on WK, in the wild for the first time!
  • ๆฅตไธปๅคซ้“ ch 95-96
Some vocab of note:

่‡จๆˆฆๆ…‹ๅ‹ข (ใ‚Šใ‚“ใ›ใ‚“ใŸใ„ใ›ใ„) [ๅ››ๅญ—็†Ÿ่ชž, n.] war preparation

Busy day, read a tiny bit of ๅŠ่ฝใก and Iโ€™m ready for bed.

Jealous, I hope to do this tomorrow!

ๅคœ่ญฆ was on sale I think? I usually binge Aozora when Iโ€™m feeling indecisive, but you have to really lean into the chaotic energy of not knowing what youโ€™re going to get.

Although I hear ๆผฑ็Ÿณ is a solid choice (ใ“ใ“ใ‚ใ€ๅŠใฃใกใ‚ƒใ‚“ and the like) - Iโ€™ve only ever read a random one of his essays and it wasnโ€™t exactly thrilling, but Iโ€™ve heard his fiction is great. I plan to read ใ“ใ“ใ‚ eventually, maybe later this year.

I have adored every ๅคชๅฎฐ short story Iโ€™ve read as well. His writing is such a delight.

Oh yes good suggestion actually! We could read the 10 dreams together @omk3 if you like (as Iโ€™m doing that anyways for the literature circle I signed up for), the stories are short (~3 pages each) but make for good discussion (at least the first two did). Maybe we can rope in @Myria as well? :wink:

According to 3/5 in letโ€™s enjoy the seasons, the reason frog and snake have ่™ซ in their kanji is because a long time ago ่™ซ meant more like creatures that โ€œopen the doorโ€ in spring ie come out of the earth. Til!

Oh boy, Saezuru. Saezuru, Saezuru, Saezuru. Ignoring how awful Japan is with consent and how both of these characters would be so much better off getting therapy, I love that Yashiro has given up pretending that he doesnโ€™t know Domeki. I canโ€™t wait to see him become more and more honest. Iโ€™m a bit torn about Domekiโ€™s actions. On one hand: creepy. On the other hand: it feels like heโ€™s playing Yashiroโ€™s games, which is interesting. Is that supposed to be a sign of intelligent or emotional growth or that heโ€™s still just playing at being yakuza?

Thanks for the recommendations once again! For now I decided Iโ€™d like to read ๆฐดใŸใพใ‚Šใงๆฏใ‚’ใ™ใ‚‹, a probably stranger story (a man starts avoiding tap water and stops taking baths) written by the author of ใŠใ„ใ—ใ„ใ”ใฏใ‚“ใ€‚Iโ€™ve even set up a thread in case anyone is interested to join, now or later (the book is on the expensive side, but hopefully there will be some coin-back sale soon for those interested).

I had a quick look, and itโ€™s short and free (dรฉjร  vu) and hopefully not as hard as ็ณžๅฐฟ่ญš, so why not? :grin:

Dreams 1, 3, 5 and 7 are in Breaking into Japanese Literature as parallel Japanese and English texts with same-page glosses for all the vocab, if thereโ€™s anybody whoโ€™s interested but doesnโ€™t feel at a level where they can just dive into them yet. The bookโ€™s website also has audio of readings of them freely available if you want to listen along.

Oh, Iโ€™ve been doing badly this past week and somehow didnโ€™t even realise the end of the challenge had already passed :sweat_smile:

Embarrasingly late summary

Despite borderline (mentally) beating myself up for missing so many days per week, this has been my most consistent challenge so far! I managed to read 23/31 days in January and 19/28 days in February, at most missing 2 days in a row. Iโ€™m actually very surprised seeing the stats all together.

My progress throughout this challenge:

  • Started and completed the first three volumes of ใƒใƒ”ใƒใ‚น
  • Started and completed ใ‹ใŒใฟใฎๅญคๅŸŽ๏ผˆไธ‹๏ผ‰
  • Started ไธ–็•Œใ‹ใ‚‰็ŒซใŒๆถˆใˆใŸใชใ‚‰ and read to a quarter of the way through

Iโ€™d say thatโ€™s not bad!

ใƒปใ“ใฎๆœฌใ‚’็›—ใ‚€่€…ใฏ (14% โ†’ 16%)

So many words I have to look up, Iโ€™m learning a bunch from this book. Itโ€™s not super exciting so far, though tbh :durtle_durtverted_lvl1: Feels a bit like a childrenโ€™s book, but at the same time too many older kanji versions of words.
