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:
- The Heredity of Taste and The 210th Day by Natsume Souseki
- Songs From a Bamboo Village, selected tanka from Takenoto Uta by Shiki Masaoka
I’ll have more books soon :)…as soon as the library open.
