京都の寺町三条商店街に、ポツリとたたずむ骨董品店『蔵』。女子高生の真城葵は、ひょんなことから、そこの店主の息子の家頭清貴と知り合い、アルバイトを始めることになる。清貴は物腰や柔らかいが恐ろしく感が鋭く、『寺町のホームズ』と呼ばれていた。葵は清貴とともに、様々な客から持ち込まれる奇妙な依頼を受けるが――エブリスタ発、人気No.1キャラミス!

Summary - English

Half a year after moving to Kyoto, high school girl Aoi Mashiro brings her late grandfather’s old scrolls to Kura, an antique store nestled in Kyoto’s Teramachi-Sanjo shopping arcade, for an appraisal. One thing leads to another, and she winds up working there part-time. The manager’s son, Kiyotaka Yagashira—nicknamed the “Holmes of Kyoto”—is uncannily perceptive, and together, they solve strange cases relating to the antiques brought to them by clients.

Oh god, it’s so hard to find proper breaks.
The prologue has no interruption until like 2 pages before the end, and runs for 10-11% of the book (depending on the interface I use to open the ebook). That’s 30+ pages :sweat_smile: Plus, there’s a solid 35+ pages section towards the end (week 9) without any clear break…

That being said, it feels on par with stuff we did before (looking at the NHKにようこそ schedule).

What do people think?

  • That’s fine
  • I have a better idea

Additionally, I would appreciate if anyone has the actual page numbers from the physical version.

Freaking copy paste. Bah.
The proper date is above anyway.
Edit: yep, can’t edit anymore.

Thank you! I have updated the pages.
On the one hand, I feel like it would make sense (in terms of length) to move 4-6 to the next week… but I feel it would be frustrating in terms of reading enjoyment.

Excited to join this one! As I will be in another book club (or two) at the same time, I am happy to go with the majority on pace haha

The next thread will have to wait until Tuesday (so, one day late), because I do not have a working computer until then :sweat_smile:
