A total number of books I have read so far is reaching 30. I don’t know how many books a normal, intellectual person is supposed to read, but I think I have a fair number. The titles are varied, and so are theirs themes and authors. From British authors, to German, Romanian, American, Chinese and,my favorite, Japanese. The recent ones include ‘La Petite Anglaise’ by Catherine Sanderson and ‘Hollywood is like high school with money’ by Zoey Dean. The last one is fabulous. A bit of ‘Mean Girls’ combined with….I don’t know, ’13 going 30′ or something like that. This gave me the idea to write more in my blog. Well, actually the idea popped in my head when I was reading Petite Anglaise, but I plan to apply it in real life as well.
OK. So far, Ryuu Murakami, Junichiro Tanizaki, Yukio Mishima, Yasunari Kawabata, and lately and currently Bai Jin is rocking my world. Of course, Chaucer is also present, with his pure, faithful wives, depicted in Legend of Cleopatra, Legend of Tisbe, etc.

For now, this is what I remember reading. I guess there are many more, probably not so important. If I count the mangas I have read online….well…. I could reach more than a hundred :D.
Then, Good night my fellow readers, if there is anyone awake at this late hour in the night. See you next time when I decide to write my life on the internet.
