Discussion Guidelines

  • Spoilers should always be hidden using spoiler blur.
  • When discussing a specific section, please mention where you are in the book, ideally by chapter so people reading different versions have a clear point of reference.
  • Feel free to read ahead if it’s exciting, but please refrain from spoiling ahead of the appropriate week.
  • If you have a question about grammar, vocab, cultural things, etc - ask! That’s a welcome part of the discussion too, and other readers will be happy to help.

Voting for starting date and pacing goes on here (sorry for the messiness):

So far it seems we’ll be starting either on the 1st of 8th of July, and will be probably reading about 50-60 pages per week.

If someone has access to the physical book or at least the table of contents page, it will help draw up a more specific schedule. If not, I’ll just do my best when I get my digital copy.

My reader doesnt have page count but each chapter seems about 3 percent of the book

edit: actually just realized this is a pointless thing to state considering…you also reach this number by simple divison :sweat_smile:

Deleted post above because below is better info and spoilered

Thank you, I was hoping for page numbers so that we can see if some chapters are much longer than others.

I’ll drop by the library later and will take a picture. It should be on the shelf. :eyes:

I had plans to go to the library today anyway and I just grabbed a copy of the book there. So here is the table of contents with page numbers (I put it under a spoiler tag because I guess some chapter titles could be a spoiler):

The last page of the story is on page 413.

While running some errands I dropped by the lovely neighborhood bookstore and grabbed a copy of the book. Was just about to post pictures of the Inhaltsverzeichnis but you beat me to it :rofl: Must have something to do with the name I guess :grin:

Thank you everyone for the willingness and super quick response, and @Nicole216 in particular for posting the page numbers!

So with the current preference being 50-60 pages per week (I’ll still leave the poll open because a couple of votes might change the outcome), a possible schedule would look like this:

Week Date Chapters Pages
1 July 1 1-6 54
2 July 8 7-11 56
3 July 15 12-15 56
4 July 22 16-20 58
5 July 29 21-26 54
6 August 5 27-31 62
7 August 12 32-37 66

Actually, here’s a question. I see several of you will borrow the book from the library. Can you keep the book for as long as the current provisional schedule lasts? Because if more than 50% of the club end up reading ahead because they need to return the book, we might want to take this into account too.

at least in my location it doesn’t seem particularly in demand (and I also have other branches nearby with a copy), so I will likely be able to renew it once or twice as needed. (Lending period is 4 weeks.)

Meanwhile there’s crazy demand for the ebook. 14 weeks wait, and there’s 5 copies, with more than 30 people in line! So I suppose I’ll need to buy mine. :sweat_smile:

I just realized that my library does not show overdrive/libby listings in their regular search function… :melting_face: I am now 3rd in line for the audiobook (~4 weeks). :sweat_smile: (and ~6 weeks in library #2)

For me it’s the same situation as for Biblio.
I can renew the lending period if there is no one on the waiting list for it (and at the moment it doesn’t seem likely that this would be the case).
And even if I can not renew it, I would probably get the audiobook on audible instead and start listening to it at that point.

Ooooh nice! This is roundabout one chapter per day, right? Looks like I know what I’ll do in the mornings instead of mindlessly scrolling the internet :rofl:
