Japanese Literature Challenge 3!

Japanese Literature Challenge was held by dolcebellezza

This year, all you have to do is read one work of Japanese origin. It can be literature of course, but don’t feel confined to that. You may choose to read poetry, biographies, short stories or even manga. If you are willing to read one such piece, you’ve met the challenge. If you read more, all the better.

I have set the time frame between July 30, 2009 and January 30, 2010.

I have a Review Site set up for us here, where we can leave links to the reviews on our own blogs and see what other people have read.

I found out about this challenge from uncertainprinciples, and because I love japanese literature…I’ll definitly joining this challenge.

Unfortunately JF library is currently closed due to internal bussiness but I’ll be able to borrow something in end of September…I’m looking forward for that.

Meanwhile, I already have a book I read on July 30, it was Naoko by Keigo Higashino….so I put that review as my 1st review. And I’ll be reading this book till JF re-open:

I’ll have more books soon :)…as soon as the library open.


  1. Hi there!

    Would just like to welcome you to this challenge! Have gone through a little bit of your blog here, and I’m so so happy to find another Murakami fan! He writes really awesome stuff, doesn’t he? =)

    Anyway, hope you enjoy this challenge!

    Thank you 🙂 and I’ll definetely enjoy it.

    Yeah he is amazing…I’m a big fan of thrill and horor but Murakami isn’t one of them and yet He had captured my heart

  2. I’m so glad you found out about the challenge and decided to join! It looks like you have some great choices picked out to read, and it’s wise to use the library rather than to keep buying books (which I’m stopping myself from doing as my house fills!).

    Novroz’ Answer
    I’m glad I found it 🙂 …. too bad I didn’t find it earlier.

    1 of the reasons I use JF (Japan Foundation) Library is because Japanese books are hard to find in my country

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
