I hope this won't inconvenience anyone but after some discussion, and in an attempt to let more people join in, I've decided to go with the more leisurely reading of I Am a Cat. We all have enough deadlines and pressures in our everyday lives without adding the books we're supposedly reading for pleasure into the mix. I Am a Cat was originally published serially so I don't think our enjoyment of the story as a whole should be affected by reading it slowly, sections at a time. That said though, please feel free to read ahead if you prefer.
The updated schedule is as follows:
Volume One - November 15th
Volume Two - December 15th
Volume Three - January 15th
And just to clarify, those dates are a guideline of when each section should be read by, but they are simply a guideline. I'll post an update on those dates here where we can discuss our thoughts but it's entirely up to you whether you post about each volume on your own blogs or not. And like I said above, don't feel obligated to stick to the schedule. The main objective in setting up these group readings is to have fun reading and discovering Japanese literature together. I'm always open to suggestions so don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like to see something done differently. We're just starting out so it may take a little while to find our rhythm but I hope we'll be able to have some interesting discussions along the way. Thanks for your support!
