How could I forget to add Dazai Osamu?!

Dazai Osamu is not alive to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday last Friday (July 19th).

He is one of the few authors that I have read in Japanese.

I am also currently reading a collection of short stories.

(Oh, I am also reading the book "Pope Joan" by Donna Woolfolk Cross. It is sooo hard to put down! For more info on the book please check out the author's website here. The book is going to be a movie too!)

I just wanted to update my list of 100 Japanese authors because a friend of mine noticed that I didn't have Dazai's name on my list! I was totally shocked because, well, I'm reading him right now and his birthday was on Friday... I suppose my brain is a bit on overload.

I have a training course (for librarians) to go to tomorrow so I better get some sleep! I will post more on Dazai Osamu when I have finished the book and am not so tired...

As for Pope Joan I will try to post something on the Book Book as soon as I'm finished with that too!

nighty night, don't let the bed bugs bite...

Hi, I came in from your other blog, surprised to learn about this one. I'm a book lover, and avid writer; not yet a published author.

Lakeviewer, thank you for stopping by here too! I love reading and writing and hope to someday publish a book or two.
