Japanese Literature Challenge 3
July 31, 2009 § 4 Comments
I was so excited a few days ago when I found out about this challenge. I’ve been wanting to explore Japanese Literature for so long, and now with this challenge, not only will I be completely motivated, I’m also going to be getting fantastic suggestions about what other books are out there, all nicely placed on shelves ready for me to devour!
I don’t have a list yet, and there are already SEVEN Murakami books that I’m planning to read in my TBR List. Rest assured that they’re not going to be the only ones though, because I’m really looking forward to reading other Japanese authors too!
If anyone would like to leave me a comment on some suggestions on books they’ve enjoyed, I’m sure I can get an endless list for this challenge.
So, let’s make this happen!
*PS: I’ll be adding the button in later today, or during the weekend. My computer broke down, and I’m using the computers at my uni right now.. Will put up a list of books later as well, just as soon as I get my uni activities and classes sorted out. So bear with me!
I’ll be adding to this post the books that I’ve read and reviewed for this challenge as I go along. Books read and reviewed by other bloggers can be accessed HERE.
