Ascendance of a Bookworm: I Don’t Understand Its Popularity

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting A few years ago, I read the beginning volumes of Ascendance of a Bookworm. I thought it was okay, but there was nothing in particular that hooked me. The explanations felt like the kind of tutorials and information I’d see in a Dr. Stone story, and the characters were as unrecognizable to me as almost any other reincarnation/isekai I … Continue reading Ascendance of a Bookworm: I Don’t Understand Its Popularity

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting This post is less of an analysis/review and more of a sincere question that I pose to anyone who is more knowledgeable in the subject of economics than myself. You see, I’ve been reading a lot of dungeon break comics such as The S-Classes That I Raised and Solo Leveling.
