Congratulations to all of you who completed the challenge this time around.

I, unfortunately, am not one of them. I just couldn't get on track for a couple of my challenges, which has led me to shy away from challenges this year. But, Bellezza, if and when you do JLC3, I'll give it another shot because I still have these wonderful books that I truly want to read!

Again, congratulations to you all!

CJ, sometimes a challenge is just too challenging. Most important is that you enjoy blogging, and enjoy reading; if those two things were compromised, I'd be sad. Of course, I'd love to host a JLC3. Would you be interested in a longer time frame? Any suggestions for any improvements?

Gururaj, you'd be so welcome to join in. Unfortunately, this particular challenge has come to the end of its time frame. However, I will certainly invite you to the next one, which should begin in July.

Is this the end of your blog then?

Book Bird Dog, this is the end of the Japanese Literature Challenge I hosted. My main blog is at:, and I will be hosting another Japanese Literature Challenge this July. Perhaps, if people continue to read in this genre they will continue to post about it here until the next challenge starts. Please feel free to visit me at my other blog, though.

Thankful Paul, of course I do!
