Japanese Literature Challenge 3

July 30, 2009 - January 30, 2010

Dolce Bellezza is hosting round 3 of the Japanese Literature Challenge. She writes:

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.
There is a dedicated review blog set up for participants.

There are some fun prizes this year including:
  • a Moleskine Japanese format notebook, with two Japanese pencils and a Japanese eraser
  • a copy of Murakami’s book South of the Border, West of The Sun
  • a brochure from the Art Institute of Chicago’s special exhibit on Japanese screens, with a magnet and box of screen cards
  • a cell phone charm, and makie stickers made of 24 karat gold, imported from Japan
  • two copies of Yakuza Moon by Tendo
  • a copy of Eat Sleep Sit by Nanomura
  • and more surprises to come!
