In October people visiting Japan Kaleidoskop were mostly interested in Japanese Literature. As in the month before the two mostly read book reviews were the same as in the month before.
Men without women by Murakami Haruki and Thousand Cranes by Kawabata Yasunari.
Two titles of Tanizaki Jun’ichirô are on the third and fourth place. Books I personally adore: The Makikoka Sisters followed by Naomi.
And surprisingly for the first time people were much interested in reading the book review of Hiromi Kawakami’s The Nakano Thrift Store which is a fun book to read.
I am currently reading Murakami’s 1Q84 and Yukio Mishima’s Thirst for Love, probably I will finish the last soon and will write a review here.
My readers came mostly from this countries, in this order:
- The United States
There were many searches on Japan Kaleidoskop and I am very happy, that you enjoy my blog and that it is useful for many readers.
Surprisingly ‘Dreaming of Kimchee‘ was searched for several times. And first I did not know, what is was. But then I remembered: It is a short story of Banana Yoshimoto in her book Lizard.
My favorite search term of October is ‘Japanese woman holding a lantern‘, which probably was not found, because there is no tag like this. But there is a very lovely picture of Suzuki Harunobu (c. 1725-1770) on this blog. It was on Art on Tuesday on January 7th, 2014.
Thank you for visiting and reading Japan Kaleidoskop. I wish you a happy autumn!
