Hi, Caitlin here to say hello, and that I'm hot on the trail of some 'good reads' for the JLC2. I am presently exploring my options; not in any rush since we have a while to complete the assignment. I posted a little something on my regular blog about my struggle today also.
Now let me ask a question. Does the author need to be Japanese, or can the books just be themed around/about Japan? Whichever, there are plenty to choose from. I've just never been looking for them before!
