Possible titles for Challenge 8:

“Strangers”/or In Search of A Distant Voice, by Taichi Yamada

  1. I still have Sputnik Sweetheart to read myself. I don’t want to finish everything Murakami’s written for who knows when there will be more? I’ve never been disappointed in Endo, so I look forward to your thoughts on Volcano which I haven’t read, either.

    • ah I know that feeling! I was so disappointed and frustrated when I realized I had read all of the Brother Cadfael’s series… Thanks for your mention of Endo, then I’ll try this one, if I can get it thru inter-library loan
