  1. I am really impressed with your goals and your pursuit of them! Good luck and have fun reading all these books. What sparked your interest in Japanese literature? I studied Japanese at university (sadly, have forgotten most of it since), and I love the literature, both classical and contemporary, but I struggled to find many fellow-Japanophiles in the UK.


  2. Marina – I lived in Japan for three years, but I didn't start reading J-Lit until after I'd left. Once I started blogging, I started to read more, mainly because of the Japanese Literature Challenge and the increased availability of books after discovering the Book Depository 🙂
