Japanese Literature Challenge 3



Japanese Literature Challenge 3 is being hosted by Dolce Bellezza.

Quoting from her blog:

"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.

The time frame is between July 30, 2009 and January 30, 2010."

I thought I can take on this challenge. Mainly because I am aiming to read Haruki Murakami. I like his writing and this is a perfect way to read more of his works.

And I can go for books on Haiku, Haiga, Tanka and Manga etc by other authors too...

Glad you are joining in. Any excuse to read Haruki Murakami is a good excuse in my opinion! :)

don't know if I would join. Maybe :) I have enough challenges to go around.

My bf loves Murakami's work. He's just finished a book recently by him.

I'm so glad you're in, Gautami, and I also thank you for pointing out my spelling error in your name yesterday. I fixed it right away! ;) I'm looking forward to seeing what you've chosen to read. I'm aiming to read a lot of Murakami myself. Welcome!
