Normally I am opposed to reading challenges. The only reason I was happy to take part in the 101 books in 1001 days challenge was because there were no real rules. I hate being confined to read a certain kind of book. I hate being told what to read, even if I am telling myself! I like the freedom of being able to chose what ever book takes my fancy when ever I feel like it.
Recently I became aware of the 4th annual Japanese Literature Challenge being held by Dolce Bellezza! This challenge really appealed to me because I love Japanese literature. I am slowly making my way through all of Haruki Murakami's books, I am keen to find new Japanese authors and the rules are simple: read one or more works of Japanese literature between June 1, 2010 and January 30, 2011. Too easy! I am sure I will read quite a few between those times anyway.
So considered me signed up! I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into some more great novels!
