2011 South Asia Book Challenge !

I absolutely love books and usually lap up any challenge that has to do with reading! So when I read a post over at Swaram’s about the 2011 South Asian Challenge hosted at S krishna’s Books I sighed up in a jiffy. This challenge requires us to read books by South Asian authors in 2011. We can choose any level that we want right from reading just one book in the year to reading about 10 books. I have decided to sign up for the South Asian Guru Level. This will require me to read over 10 books in the year 2011 by South Asian writers! Hope I succeed! I have decided to try concentrating on writers from other South Asian countries besides just India.
This particular challenge is only about writers in South Asia, but aside from taking up this challenge in the coming year I am also going to try and read more books about Japan and by Japanese authors. It has been a very long time since I read anything by a Japanese writer!
So get ready for a lot of books related posts in the coming year !


  1. Japanese author? Have you read Haruki Murakami? Try his book "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle". I loved it! It's crazy, but keeps you going.

    Good luck with the challenge!

  2. I wud luv to see ur list of Japanese books too. Welcome to the challenge :)

  3. @alphabetworld - off course I have ! and have read some of his short stories in original Japanese :)
    @Swaram - Thanks Swaram

  4. "Sayonara Gangsters" by Genichiro Takahashi and it's good novel. BTW, good luck with the challenge!

  5. My first challenge (South Asia Challenge 2011) and I am very keen to introduce some Sri Lankan authors and also go beyond the popular south asian authors as well.
