Dolce Bellezza is hosting the Japanese Literature Challenge 2. I didn't participate last year, but there are a few books on my radar this year that would qualify for this challenge. I can't believe how much my reading has broadened in the last year. This is a perfect example, as now I know three different authors that are Japanese, and I don't think I could say that last year.
Read 3 books of your choice between July 30, 2008 and January 30, 2009.
