Hosted by Dolce Bellezza, this is another one of those reading challenges that I could not resist!

About Japanese Literature Challenge:

(1) Read one work of Japanese origin (literature, poetry, biographies, short stories, manga etc). If you can read more, all the better.

(2) Begins July 30, 2009 and ends January 30, 2010.

(3) Dolce Bellezza has some prizes! (Check out the link above to read more about it).

I cannot decide what to read right now, but it would most likely be a novel by Haruki Murakami since I have a few of his books in my pile.

And oh, I love this button! Isn't it cute?

And the button shown on the right (created by Tanabata) is lovely too!







Thanks to Dot from Scribbles for passing on the lovely Heartfelt award to me. I love reading Dot's blog so do visit her blog if you haven't done so.


Do you reach for a cup of cocoa or tea when you're relaxing, seeking comfort, sharing a plate of cookies with family and friends? You know that feeling you get when you drink a yummy cup of cocoa, tea or a hot toddy? That is what the Heartfelt award is all about: feeling warm inside!

I want to pass this award to all my blogger friends! You guys rock!

    Congrats on the award :-D

    I saw the Japanese Lit challenge on another blog too - I've never read any Japanese Literature so I might actually take part in this, especially as it's only reading one piece. :-)
