This second part mostly covers the content of chapter 95 of the WN, so you can probably skim through it. There are only few changes.
However I must say the pacing is much better with the Light Novel. It actually makes me enjoy translating the series again. Chapter 2 majorly diverts from the WN, so you should definitely read from there, if you skip around after I switched to the Light Novel version.

Well, all good things come to an end. Sadly this applies to this fan translation of Ascendance of a Bookworm as well. It was a short journey, but well, that’s how life goes.
Let me use this opportunity to advertise the follow-up project for Ascendance of a Bookworm that will start from next week on:
I will translate Tale of Mismarca Kingdom. It’s a fairly old series that has finished at 12 Volumes + 1 Extra Volume. You can already check the Table of Contents here. There exists a manga of it and the first 2 or 3 chapters of volume 1 have already been translated elsewhere a few years back, but I will start from the scratch.
Give it a chance and check it out!
The final chapter of Bookworm has been edited by ApoWo, Endless and Terrin!!
P.S.: And here one last goodie from me:
as announced in the previous week’s release post, I’m starting over with the beginning of volume 10 of the Light Novel for Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!
The volume starts with the liberation army moving southwards after the battle in the Great Sorbid Wastelands, aka chapter 95 in the Web Novel. For this and the coming chapters, I will add a note a beginning to explain the major differences between the Light Novel story and the Web Novel story and the new characters that have been introduced in the Light Novel. Please do understand that I can’t address each and every little detail. I will only stick to the major points that matter to the plot.
Well, you will see that the differences aren’t all that big.
This chapter will be split into two parts (normally it would have been 4 parts) so as to catch up with the part where I stopped the WN as soon as possible.
