I’ve been really slack these days at updating this blog with my thoughts on books. I’ve just finished Tash Aw’s The Harmony Silk Factory, and I promise to post my thoughts on it real soon. Currently, I’m reading Ellen DeGeneres’ My Point… And I Do Have One. I’m finding it light and quite comical, and I’m rather enjoying it.
But I do need something more substantial to read. So at a time like this, the Random Reading Challenge does come in handy.
My list to randomly choose from:
- When We Were Orphans – Kazuo Ishiguro
- The Book Against God – James Wood
- East West – Salman Rushdie
- Sophie’s World – Jostein Gaarder
- The Bonesetter’s Daughter – Amy Tan
- The Wind-up Bird Chronicle – Haruki Murakami
- A Quiet Life – Kenzaburo Oe
- Silence – Shusaku Endo
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao – Junot Diaz
- Kappa – Ryunosuke Akutagawa
- The Stone Gods – Jeanette Winterson
- Oranges are Not The Only Fruit – Jeanette Winterson
- Kinshu: Autumn Brocade – Teru Miyamoto
And the winner (or rather, the book I’m going to read before the others..) is… (according to random.org)…
… The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, Haruki Murakami!
This book is also part of my TBR Challenge, which I seem to be failing miserably at..
This book will also be part of the Japanese Literature Challenge.
I will probably be wanting to take part in some challenges in the coming year as well. Maybe I should aim to do less books in each of the different challenges, especially considering how I digress into different books as time progresses.
I’m definitely interested in taking different challenges for 2010. Any suggestions?
