Japanese Literature Books

In the past 6 years my interest in books had been narrowed into manga only. Be it for BL & yaoi, or any other genre. For the same span of time, guilty as charge, I neglected any other kind of books I already have. My excuse is, which actually is not a mere excuse, heh, almost every book that I have kept at the places other than where I live at the moment. In the rolling of time I became too busy to read text books so it just made things worst. Gotten too often to leave a book in the middle of reading it and then too scarce to get the chance to continue, makes the reading very much not enjoyable. Going back and fro the pages to get the forgotten details back and all that jazz are tiring like hell. I’m not that bright, unfortunately, therefore I could lost any details of an unsolved matter so easily.

A few months back, after certain situations, I was forced to get to handle those neglected books. The previous latest database has gone into the ditch hence I have no choice than to start it all over again. Made one in an exel spreadsheet, then put it up into my online catalogue as well. But, I wanted to arrange it in a list based Japanese Literature Books on whatever I feel like it to post in my blog/s too. Aaaahhh..., doing things for my books is something that I love the most--yes, I'm being hyperbolic.

I decided to start with my collection of Japanese literature. It's a long time affection that came before manga and stopped abruptly when my interest to the later went sky-rocketed.These are the books I bought up to six years ago, added with a few new titles given by etre_de_viestre March this year. I marked it with a double asterix [**].

I think I still missed some titles though. I have to go to the warehouse where I put my things from the time before I live in this hut, to make sure if I still have the now missing books or have not I. Before making any decisions on buying it again of course. I did lend my books to some people to whom I trusted my book with but after some years it proofed that it’s a false hope *sighs*

So, here's the list of the gems hidden in the dusty corner of my neglected shelves. Each title linked to the book-info of my online catalog. But please be aware that I am prone to mis-link.

I may update the list, if the missing books are found and/or when I bought new titles; maybe link it too with with book reviews. But, plans are never work for me...
