I hope you guys are all excited! Going over the chapters the later ones are a bit short, maybe to short for this book club. One way to combat this would be to combine chapter 3 & 4 into one week, let me know what you all think!
This is the first book club on the forum that I’m planning to join, and it’s perfect because I just picked the book up on my own when I came across it in the shop a few weeks ago. I’m not totally sure what my level is compared to everyone else though, because I haven’t done the book club thing here before. But I’m excited to try it out, looking forward to reading along with everyone!
I haven’t looked into the Manga yet but just looking at the page numbers for the chapters I would also lean towards splitting chapter 1 and combining chapters 3+4, so that we get a bit of a ramp-up and then stay at the same level (page-wise) basically.
I also considered that, but what I’d like about a “heavier” previous week and a “lighter” last week is that you stay at the same workload during the “core” and then you can get the last week completed quickly and are able to get the accomplishment of completion easy and early (basically like going downhill all the time), whereas when the penultimate week is lighter, then the last week might feel like “the last mountain at the end of the race”, if that makes sense…
Looking at all the arguments I have changed the schedule have a slower start (chapter 1 is split), then we ramp up and finish with the small chapter 5. Since the author really does not seem to like page numbers I have added the “key visual” for the seperation between week 1 & 2, I hope that helps.
