Japanese Literature Challenge IV
I'm so excited to join the Japanese Literature Challenge IV hosted by Dolce Bellezza. I'm definitely in the mood for Japanese novels right now. I've missed reading Haruki Murakami, so its a good excuse to finally pick up another of his novels. I'm now reading Kafka on the Shore and enjoying it very much. The Challenge runs from June 1, 2010 to January 30, 2011. For more information, check out this site .
Here's my list for the challenge. I do hope I get to read all of this before the new year.
1. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
2. The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
3. The Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa
4. Real World by Natsuo Kirino
5. Out by Natsuo Kirino
6. Grotesque by Natsuo Kirino
7. The Waiting Years by Fumiko Enchi
8. Goodbye Tsugumi by Banana Yoshimoto
