Dear Beans | Chapter List

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 23, 2015, 2:06 PM

~ About ~ Characters ~ List of Chapters ~ Gallery ~

The two of them came as a package deal. Wherever you saw one, you would find the other.

The 100 Themes Challenge

Suggested Reading Order

Dear Beans is a slice-of-life story focusing on four friends and their relationships as they grow up or so I claim.

Since DB is written in pieces according to the title of each individual ‘chapter,’ reading it in 100 Themes Challenge order is probably not all that helpful.

Then again, it doesn't really matter what order you read these in, it seems... I suppose that reading them in the Thematic clusters would make more sense?

These are the only ones with any real order necessity:
Other than that... have at it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
