January in Japan


So here is the first blogosphere event I’m taking part in this year. I’m not very familiar with Japanese literature, but I’ve wanted to read more for some time; so when I heard about this themed month being hosted by Tony’s Reading List, it seemed an ideal pretext. I’ve scoured the local library and my own shelves for some reading material, and I’ll be linking to all of my posts from here as and when they appear. (If you want a sneak preview, keep an eye on the new ‘Read in 2013’ page above.)

1. Piercing by Ryu Murakami & Out by Natsuo Kirino

2. Harmony by Project Itoh

3. Hotel Iris by Yoko Ogawa & The Goddess Chronicle by Natsuo Kirino


  1. I’m taking part in this too and will be posting my plans for it tomorrow. I am being realistic and committing to reading only 2 books. I look forward to seeing what you’ve chosen.

    Oh, I’ve been a bit… less realistic with my plans.

  3. Hurrah for ‘less realistic’ plans. Peeking at your reading log, Sputnik Sweetheart sounds a good place to start. 🙂
