My Reading Challenges - January 2013

2012 has been the year of great Reading Challenges and because I managed to read fantastic books and discover incredible authors, I will take part in a few (let's say eight or nine) such reading challenges.
For January 2013 I am planning to read Wolf Hall (Hilary Mantel) for the Orange in January Challenge and because I realized it has more than 650 pages, that will also be for Birgit's Tea and books Challenge; Kafka on the shore (Haruki Murakami) and A Quiet Life (Kenzaburo Oe) for Bellezza's Japanese Literature Challenge and Tony's January in Japan; Diego and Frida (Le Clezio) for Birgit's This isn't Fiction Challenge, for which I decided to upgrade my challenge to ten books instead of five. Anything else may and will be included on the list :)
Happy Reading in the New Year!

Kafka on The Shore was the first Murakami book I read, and I was immediately hooked. Hope you like it as much as I did, although unlike me, don't expect to understand every single aspect. I think he writes such that some ideas have to roll around in our hearts and minds for awhile. (In my case, a few years... ;)

I can't wait to read it, but I still have to finish 1Q84, one volume to go :)
