The challenge (put simply): Read at least one book of Japanese origin. Yep, that's it. And dammit, this year I'm actually going to do it! I am!

My list of possibles (I will count myself a success if I read just one of these, but really, truly I hope I manage more than that!):

*Basho: The Complete Haiku

*Grotesque and/or Out by Natsuo Kirino

*some manga (possibly some Fruit Baskets by Natsuki Takaya)

*The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
