Because I don't have enough stuff to do!
Like I don't have enough stuff to do, I joined the Japanese Literature Challenge. About a month or so ago, I read a book titled "Asleep" by Banana Yoshimoto. It was a collection of short stories, three to be exact and I LOVED it. It was one of those books that automatically went into my "keeper" pile that I will read again. The last book of short stories I read, also went into this pile. The Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri. If you have not read it, get and read it NOW, you can thank me later.
So, I promptly went to Paperback Swap and ordered ALL of Banana's books. Then I started looking at other Japanese authors. Hmm, a genre of books I have not delved into!! And then I saw the Challenge. Ok, it's only THREE books by January 2009. I can do this!!! Now I need to chose my three.......which three??? There are some great novels listed on the challenge site!
