    I am not a native speaker, but I imagine that shūji is the "Northern"/北方话 pronunciation and shūjì would be slightly more standard/普通话, and that both are used.
    We'll see what the Sinophones say!

    Wow, just noticed that 书记 got two versions of pronunciation, for me, I would prefer shūjì. That's what I heard from the TV.

    I guess he means 书记 when used as titles can refer to different job positions on different occasions.

    Thanks zhg! The word "secretary" in English is similarly ambiguous and the context is needed to know what kind of "secretary" is meant :)
