Book Blogging in Japan

Just a quick post to let you know that I'm featured today on Leeswammes' Blog as part of her weekly Book Bloggers Abroad series. "Every week a book blogger from a different country is featured who talks about what it’s like to be a book blogger where he or she lives." And this week, it's me! I talk a little about how I came to Japan (and ended up staying so long!), my favourite bookstore in Tokyo, and a few of my favourite books. So please head over to Judith's blog to find out what it's like to be a Book Blogger Abroad in Japan.

I was very glad to get my guest post in to Judith in time, as this is actually the last post in her popular series. However, as a related event, she is hosting the Book Bloggers Abroad 2011 Challenge. In each guest post for the Book Bloggers Abroad series, the participants listed a book or two from the country where they are blogging from. The idea of the reading challenge is to read some of these recommended books. There are a few levels of participation, and a great variety of books to choose from. Check it out!


  1. Enjoyed your post very much. Love the kimono pic. I don't think I could stand the pace of Tokyo for 5 minutes. :)

  2. are such an adventurous woman, Nat! I didn't you have been living abroad for 15 years.

    I really enjoy your post. Don't worry Nat, even my friend who had studied Japanese in college and editor of math book (from Japanese to English) still unable to read Japanese Novel ;)

    Your Kimono is very beautiful and Jiro looks so sweet.

    Ps: I leave my comment here because I can't leave my comment in Judith's blog (too lazy to turn on the computer)

  3. I remembered when you lived in England, Nat, and I can't believe it's been over 5 years since you've been back living in Japan. Gosh, how time flies!

  4. Such a nice guest post Nat! I commented over at Leeswammes' but wanted to say so again ;)
