I 'm not really in Martial Arts. I like more Sword and Magic fantasy, kind of chivalry like "DragonLance, etc" ...

I just Started another ISEKAI one, "Magic & Knight's", about an Otaku who is a computer programmer and lover of Mecha like Gundams', etc ...
I enjoy the Anime, and the manga. so I decide to give a chance to the original work.

I think there is not official translation already of the Knight's & Magic LN. I know CR has he Manga on Simul Pub, where I'm reading it also ...
But since I saw on Wikipedia that it got a LN... I search for it ... ( ^__~ )

I decided to try a trial run of J-novel premium membership.

It seems like it'll be good, but for now I'm doing a month.

I'd say they have a good number of books I'm interested in.

The only thing I don't like is the fact I can't use my Kindle to read it, a Fire yes, but not my Oasis which is my preferred E-reader.

Since I joined I also received 1 credit which I can use to purchase an E-Book from them. In fact there's an E-Book I've already decided to get. So I'm going to try getting it possibly or another. See if I can read that on my Oasis, if I can I'll probably stick with it while they have E-books I haven't already bought and interested in getting.

E-books are in general cheaper than the subscription but only by 30%. So that isn't too bad, still money being paid that isn't necessarily worth paying out for what you get. If I buy three more books every month, then it breaks even because of the discount.

I don't think I'll be interested in buying 4 books a month, possibly 2 and 3 at times but 4 seems a bit extreme. It's probably what they are betting on with the membership.

Anyways, I'll let everyone know what I think.

wooow! me too
I was this weekend at my Sister place. and give me a self B'day present a Month to try it.

What annoying me is I can't see how ( if its posible) to read from web browser...
I get the mobile (Android) app ... not sure if was my internet connection... or my mobile ( quite olde now... Nokia 6, from 2017+/-) ... but just try o read the prologue of one book was a bit nightmare (S-L-O-O-O-W-W-W ) TO CHANGE PAGES.
TT__TT

In general I saw some book I like to read, ( and may buy also) ... but for now, I have to try it again at home.

Isn't really there in "Amazon App Store" the official App from J-novel Club ???

I read in the FAQ: What format is a Premium E-book?
Premium E-books are standard epub3 files. They should work on all EPUB3 compatible ereaders and are easily convertable to Kindle's MOBI file format using free software like Calibre.


Since I joined I also received 1 credit which I can use to purchase an E-Book from them.

I see now, I just SIGN in for a "normal" membership from 5$ US (about £4) ... I think I must upgrade also to a premium (10'95$ a month).
also members can buy 'credits' for 7$, and premium for just 6$. another small benefit. (^^)

To read J-Novels in the browser.

On the browser, I read by going to Titles and clicking the one I wanted to read.

Then you’ll see which parts are available. Scroll through and click the part you want to read. Nothing will appear to have happened but the part you want to read is selected. Locks will appear next to chapters you aren’t allowed to read.

To the left under the book image is read now which seems like it’s part of the image but it’s what you click to go to the part you want to read. If you selected a locked part, you won’t be able to read it.

who else is readin this one!?
Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! (Japanese: 私、能力は平均値でって言ったよね!, HepburnWatashi, Nōryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne!

... I just happen to read it at a web novel site ... (Chap 383 WN : Request in Empire ... )

「Ah, we are all pure humans,
A newbie party who just became C rank for a year…
I wonder if we can get rid of the title of a newbie soon.
I think we are only the bottom level of C rank…」(Mile)
 「「「「「……」」」」」(Female Hunter party) 

So definitely much better than the animation adaptation . (^_^)

I'm reading 'Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

I'm not completely caught up on the current books out. I think I'm 2 or 3 volumes behind, I've read 6 of them.

I just picked up Sexiled.

This is a fantastic Light Novel. There are only 2 volumes and that's probably all there ever will be. So it's short but still quite interesting.

I've only read volume 1 so far, I've already picked up the 2nd book.

And it has already 469 (Chapters, last one; 獣人の村 1 ... published last Tuesday May 12th 2020 (2020/05/12 00:00 in Japanese format), I am at chap 394 ... I believe that is about Volumen 14-15? and in English are just 9 of them.
