You're doing really well with the challenge Harvee! I've often heard great things about The Wind Up Bird Chronicle. I myself would like to try it one time.

Thanks, Mark. I try. I've bought The Elegance of the Hedgehog, so I think I'll be reviewing it at some point. And I also want to read the Wind-Up Bird Chronicles~ have heard so many positive things about it. How's your reading for the challenge coming along?

You should read The Housekeeper and the Professor. It's wonderful. I've read this novel in chinese and I really enjoy it. Yoko Ogawa is one of my favorite Japanese writers.
