I'm so excited to join the Japanese Literature Challenge 3, hosted by Bellezza! Of course, you might be equally as excited if I was making better progress on my other challenges, but I am really and truly thrilled. The challenge is tres facile, you only need to read one work of Japanese origin!
I have a continuing love affair with Japanese culture even though I've been stateside for over four years now.
My goal for this challenge is to read more work by Shusaku Endo. Silence is one of my favorite novels ever and after I read it I snapped up a bunch of his books and never read them. As you do. So I'd like to go back and read those books now!
I hope you'll consider signing up for this challenge as it's quite simple and Japanese lit rocks. Also, you could then put this pretty little button on your site. Miyajima is truly as stunning as it looks in this picture and I took so many pictures when I went there. (take a step, snap a photo)
