January in Japan
I kicked off January in Japan this year with Yoko Ogawa’s The Diving Pool. A little ahead of time (it’s a readalong scheduled for January 16th) but I already finished it… woops. I will say more about the book later on in the event!

I also made a selection for other books I hope to read. I don’t know if I’ll stick to it 😉

January in Japan 2014

  • The Diving Pool by Yoko Ogawa (finished January 4th)
  • Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edogawa Rampo (currently reading)
  • Harmony by Project Itoh
  • Ehon Chiyomigusa by Sukenobu Nishikawa (a Dutch translation of tanka poetry)
  • Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami

Let’s see what happens!

  1. I just finished The Diving Pool myself, for exactly the same event. I’ll be sticking up some thoughts closer to the 16th like you I imagine 😉

    Of the other books you have there, I read Harmony a few months back and enjoyed it immensely, and Hard Boiled Wonderland is perhaps my favourite Haruki Murakami book. Looks like you’ve got a very Interesting January in store, and I’ll be very interested in your thoughts as and when.

    1. I’ll keep an eye out for your post on The Diving Pool (and following your blog now ^^).

      Good to hear about Harmony! I’m very curious about that one myself. I’ve had it for a while and it’s just begging me to read it. And one can never go wrong with Murakami 😉
