Summary - English

Who is the Raven Consort?

Deep within the palaceโ€™s walls lives the secluded and mysterious Raven Consort. Some say she is an old woman, while others claim she is young and beautiful. What all stories agree upon is that she has the power to exorcise spirits, lay fatal curses, and find lost objectsโ€“for a price. When the young emperor arrives at the door of the Raven Consort seeking magical assistance, his request could shake up the palaceโ€ฆor perhaps even the entire kingdom.

@Biblioโ€™s started looking at the JP copy of the book; if we have any KR joiners Iโ€™ll need to add in those page numbers at some point as well.

3 Likes

Last call for those with page numbers before I put up a pacing poll based on percentage only!

Iโ€™ve got it on bookwalker, here are the page numbers I have:

1: 28
2: 48
3: 66
4: 85
5: 113
6: 132
7: 161
8: 189
9: 217
10: 240
11: 278

Do these match up with what page the weeks listed above would end on?

Yep! The pages with the last line or the end of the chapter.

The book is supposed to have 320 pages, though? Also 28/320 (or 315) is approx 9% and 48 corresponds to 15%โ€ฆ so it doesnโ€™t line up at all :sweat_smile:

Edit: Ah, but my ebook agrees with those percentages (almost 9% and 15%), so the table might be wrong :thinking:
Edit2: The difference decreases over time (next two are 20 and 26 for me, so just +1) and eventually disappears, though.

Alrighty, so letโ€™s poll page; sorry for any weird formatting, Iโ€™m on mobile. So based on Biblio and henhenโ€™s numbers, we the current proposed option has us reading this many pages per week:

Week 1: ~23 pgs
Week 2: 20
Week 3: 18
Week 4: 19
Week 5: 28
Week 6: 19
Week 7: 29
Week 8: 28
Week 9: 28
Week 10: 23
Week 11: 38
Week 12: 37

This would have us end the week of March 18. If we want to increase the page count, unless someone can recommend different/better breakpoints (sorry, I donโ€™t own the book), the page count is going to increase to about 40/week, more or less consistently.

Pages 316-320 are the info about the publisher and the back cover and stuff like that, the text ends on 315.

2 Likes

The two numbers we have so far are page 22-24 (i.e. 7%) and page 28. I think 28 is correct based on the numbers I see, but since there are a bunch of pages without relevant text at the beginning (e.g., the ็›ฎๆฌก), itโ€™s probably something like 23 pages of text.

I canโ€™t really tell for the other breaks at this point. That being said, @henhen numbers would mean 18 pages for week 3, not 26

2 Likes

Whoops, you are absolutely correct. Thanks!

Iโ€™ll update that as well to give a more accurate view.

Honestly the lower page counts for this book might work out, since itโ€™s higher-leveled. That, and unless we go with different page breaks, the page count is going to jump dramatically and probably exclude quite a few people.

2 Likes

Yeah, Iโ€™d prefer not to up the page counts per week. Iโ€™ve taken a peek at the first few pages, and itโ€™s a lot of new vocab for me.

2 Likes

I also think having a somewhat low page count may be better. It can allow people to catch up, too, if they start late.
If anything, Iโ€™d make the first week even shorter (thereโ€™s another break earlier) but that would mess up with the second weekโ€ฆ

3 Likes

I guess a lot of new words will repeat again and again so I hope the problem with vocabulary wonโ€™t go further than the earlier weeks, once we get used to the specialized vocab.
Anyway here is the jpdb link, I hope it helps!

Iโ€™ll be joining after all. Iโ€™m not confident that Iโ€™ll be able to keep up because of the higher level. However Iโ€™ve started reviewing the deck on jpdb so hopefully that helps :sweat_smile:

Iโ€™ve got week 1โ€™s thread up:

Sorry for the utter lack of any useful information on my end; Iโ€™ll be filling that in tomorrow. Weโ€™ll be going with the 12-week schedule based off of @Biblio and @henhenโ€™s numbers, and will change if needed.

So I was reading about different book awards in Japan when I realized this LN is the winner of the 22nd Sense of gender awards.
Nothing more to add, just a bit of information I thought Iโ€™d share in case anyone is interested in gender and/or awards. :smile:
