We’re nearly 4 months into the Translation Challenge and I know I’ve been a bit lax with exciting extras, so I would like to propose that the month of May is Japan Month.
I’d love for all my challengees to read something Japanese in May. However, even if you’re not signed up to the challenge, you can still join in. Read a book translated from Japanese or just one set in Japan. Blog about Japanese culture. Share a Japanese inspired recipe. Been on holiday there? Share your photos! And if you’re from Japan, we’d love to hear from you too. It doesn’t need to just be about books.
Please leave your recommendations for Japanese books in the comments (and a link to your reviews if you have them). I will do a post next week to give you some ideas and I’d like them not to all have come from me. There will also be giveaways!
If Japanese culture isn’t your thing, we’ll also be piggy-backing onto Paris in July to read more French literature, so keep your eyes out. If you’ve not got a blog but would like to contribute, please get in touch regarding guest posts as I’m happy to have you.
Please link up your Japanese themed posts and reviews below (don’t forget to link up your challenge reads as well if they’re translated). Feel free to use the graphic (or not) too.
