Week Up to Approximate Pages Approx. Percent Paperback page
Week 1 - Jan 29 Read up until chapter 1, section 4 33 13% 38
Week 2 - Feb 5 Read through end of chapter 1 33 25% 71
Week 3 - Feb 12 Read up until chapter 2, section 3 26 34% 98
Week 4 - Feb 19 Read up until chapter 2, section 5 30 45% 128
Week 5 - Feb 26 Read up until chapter 3, section 2 29 55% 157
Week 6 - Mar 4 Read through end of chapter 3 50 73% 207
Week 7 - Mar 11 Read through end of book (not inclusive of 解読) 66 97% 275

The page counts are based on the paperback, my copy was published in 1984. I normally wouldn’t push over 60 pages but the other cuts I tried felt more awkward and since this book looks pretty dialogue heavy (so less dense pages) I think it should still work. I did my best to approximate percentages, but they likely won’t match your ereader perfectly.

Thanks for the schedule! Looking forward to it :blush:

Just to make sure, when you say „until“ you mean „until the start“ i.e. „not including“, is that correct?

I say I’ll be reading along when the club starts, but this book is in the same order as セーラー服と機関銃, and cdjapan didn’t have that immediately in stock, so the whole order is a bit delayed. Still, it’s an Akagawa Jirou and the pace is pretty lenient so I should be able to catch up if it hasn’t arrived by the start date…

Yep. Up until. Not inclusive. Treat the one listed as a stop sign.

I will be checking in probably every other week as I prefer to read a full chapter at once so I will be on pace every second week. :clown_face:
