Japanese Literature Challenge 2011

It's that time of year - actually I'm a little late - but Dolce Bellezza is hosting the 5th annual Japanese Literature Challenge and I'm signing up.... I love this challenge... it's introduced me to authors and genre's I would not have normally tried.

So my intentions this year include:
  • read more Haruki Murakami
  • read more Banana Yoshimoto
  • read another Japanese Author
  • read another Japanese History
You can see my previous years attempts on my 'challenges' page, where you'll note I'm not a prolific reader, but I have to say I ALWAYS enjoy my Japanese Literature reads.

I recently finished Murakami's "Hard-boiled Wonderland and The End of the World", which I will post on soon. If you have any other suggestions I would love to hear from you - even if you have something that doesn't fit with my 'intentions' list....

Until later.

Oooo, I've toyed with this challenge for a while but joining up always makes me feel under pressure. I'm reading 'The Wind-up Bird Chronicle' at the moment and it's brilliant. After reading 'Kafka on the Shore' earlier this year I have to warm up for Murakami's new offering 'IQ84' ...exciting! Looking forward to reading your posts.
