  • 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.

Finished this week’s reading for :kr: :norway: :de:! :smiley:

Guess I might as well start the :jp: translation as well…


I read chapter 3 in Spanish last night. Very enjoyable and very difficult to stop and not carry on to chapter 4!


I’ve always loved the instances of humor in these earlier books; a good example is this week, talking about the stick that all the Smeltings boys carry around to smack each other with to build character. :rofl:
