Japanese Literature Challenge 5

June 1, 2011 until January 30, 2012
Dolce Bellezza is  hosting the Japanese Literature Challenge 5She writes:

In pursuing my passion for Japanese authors and their works, I have hosted the Japanese Literature Challenge for the past four years. And now it is time for the Japanese Literature Challenge 5. The requirements are the same: read one book.  If you want to read more than one, wonderful. If one is all you can manage, wonderful. Once you've read it, you may wish to post your review on the JLC5 review site.

If you have no idea where to even begin, you may want to peruse the list of suggested books. I have compiled these titles from the previous four Japanese Literature Challenges; they come highly recommended by either me or other participants in the challenge.

Let yourself become wide open to every possibility, as Murakami says. Prepare to suspend your disbelief. Join me, please, in this most wonderful of genres. 
To sign up, go to Japanese Literature Challenge 5.
