The book is divided into 26 chapters of roughly equal length. The club voted for a reading pace of 2 chapters per week for the first half of the book, and then 3 chapters per week for the rest o f it. If we find this too fast or too slow while reading, we can always discuss reading pace again.
I only have the ebook, but I tried to set up my pages to as close to physical size as possible. If someone has the paperback and wants to provide actual page numbers, I’ll be happy to change the table.
Please note that the schedule changed based on this poll, and we’re taking 10 weeks instead of the planned 11. The old schedule is kept at the end of the table for historical reasons.
I see we’ve got the author tagged in the thread now. I definitely want to join, but I need to sit down and take a hard look at my book club schedules; I’d be reading this side-by-side with コップクラフト and 予言の島, and those are already kind of pushing things to the side. I’m hoping I can finangle it; it’ll likely come down to my work and how busy things get…
Question for @Megumin and @brandon, now that I’m looking at thread tags. Do you think we need the bookclub tag still, since there’s an entire subcategory?
Was also wondering your inspiration for the title emojis, @omk3.
If you would feel more comfortable with a different reading pace, feel free to say so. We can have a poll to decide on reading amount for each week - I just based the current schedule on the amount of pages we have been reading so far, but this doesn’t mean it can’t change.
I thought it might be a good idea. If there are any objections I can always remove it. I agree that the bookclub tag is probably redundant.
Aaah. The hand made sense, but I didn’t initially see the bubbles on the cover.
Nah, it’s fine; the schedule doesn’t seem overly quick to me, it’s just that when I have three books all at a minimum of a reasonable 30 pages a week that I start to give pause. Not to worry; in my case this is a me problem. If anyone does want to suggest a ~20 page/week schedule, then I’d probably vote for it, but like I said, this is mostly due to my own book greed.
It looks like we’ll be doing 2 chapter a week at first, and switch to 3 chapters a week later on. I’ll keep the poll open for one more day (in case there are any Sunday voters), then I’ll update the schedule in the home post. If the book turns out to be a much easier, or a much harder read than expected, we can always re-discuss schedule after a couple of weeks.
