For the second year in a row I’m participating in the popular Japanese Literature Challenge. Running in its 5th year and hosted by lovely Dolce Bellezza, every year promises an eye-opening experience for me. It could be reading about works of a new Japanese author or reading from the authors whom I dearly love.
These are what I have got on my shelf. Last year I read 12 books for the challenge. I’ll be lucky if I read a quarter this year.
There are many more Japanese must-read books out there. Perhaps I will check this list out and Bellezza’s list of suggested books is just as good. Tony’s Reading List besides containing the usual generous dose of Russian and German literature, he reads a great many Japanese books as well and writes salivating reviews that makes you want to pick books up instantly from his recommendation.
Fingers crossed it will be another fulfilling year of J-lit.
